Knit & Natter

Garvestone Methodist Church

2nd Tuesday of each month, 10.30am - 12 noon

Opening again on Tuesday 13th July

(depending on Government guidelines)


We are a friendly group of women, and men, who like to knit.

Some crochet or sew and we all natter! Some only natter!

We do our own knitting. All abilities meet here.

Some knit to an advanced level while others do easier knitting.

Help is at hand for learning and tricky problems.


We support charities, knitting blankets for the Faulkner Trust which supports a community in Zambia and we knit hats for the Christmas boxes appeal.


We are based at the chapel and also sometimes meet in private houses.

Refreshments are delicious and free.


You are very welcome to join us.

If you would like to join us, since there are restrictions on numbers and distancing, please ring Lorna Folkes 01362 858391 for more information.
