Cavell Gardens Knitting Club & Sewing Circle

Since the beginning of (Cavell) time we have been blessed with a group of talented ladies who have worked tirelessly to create some of the most delightful knitted and crocheted garments and toys. Once a week on a Tuesday evening they get together for an hour of knitting and good company; the products of which are sold at 1 of 2 annual knitting sales.

All the proceeds of  the sales go towards the Knitting Club's  chosen charity; Covenant House. Not only does the Charity receive the cash donation  but also all of the unsold items.

The ladies are always looking for donations of wool for this worthwhile club. If you are having a clear-out and find yourself with a surplus of yarn you want taken off your hands please do pop it in to reception and we'll pass it on.

More recently we have re-formed the Cavell Gardens Sewing Circle; despite starting late into the year, Head Seamstress, Eileen & her small team of talented ladies managed to sew together enough items to have a stall at our Christmas Bazaar. They opted to choose 4 items to make; wine bottle covers; plastic bag holders, hand towels and microwave bags for the perfect jacket potato. They sold everything; the proceeds of which will be used to fund another project in the New Year.

The Fruits of Their Labour
Once again we will gladly accept any good quality fabrics and sewing supplies destined for the thrift shop!
