The Lendrum Crafters Group is hosting drop-in evenings for knitters and crocheters (KKCC - Knit Knight, Crochet Club). We will have some supplies available to get complete beginners started on projects such as dish cloths, scarves, or squares for Blankets for Canada. This will be informal mentoring rather than a course of instruction. If you have unfinished projects languishing, bring them along and perhaps some help with the tricky bits or maybe just some enthusiasm and encouragement will help get things rolling again. If you just want to stitch with some friendly neighbours for a relaxing evening, this is for you!
