Knit and Natter Group

THE KNIT and NATTER GROUP -  meet fortnightly in Cudham on a Monday evening from 8pm until 10pm and you are more than welcome to join our friendly group.  We knit, crochet, and any other wool crafts are welcome.  Please check the calendar for meeting dates.

In February 2018 Becci Johnson from Making Miracles, a Kent & Medway charity, came along to our group and spoke about their work, and during April 2018 a coffee morning was held in Cudham to raise funds during the charity's awareness month. Making Miracles is a charity which provides services such as trauma and bereavement counselling after a high-risk pregnancy, miscarriage, premature birth or baby loss.  As they need knitted, crocheted and quilted items for babies and children up to 2yrs of age to sell at their community and local hospital stalls, the Knit and Natter Group have been supporting this charity by knitting all sorts of small garments for the premature babies. The charity also welcome other sources of funds to support the counsellors who work with families for trauma and bereavement support.  Making Miracles also held their 2nd Big Knit at Rochester Cathedral, on Saturday 13th October where over 60 people attended; some came with squares already knitted and by the end of the morning there were over 1000 squares ready to be sew into baby blankets for the charity to sell.

Over the past few months Knit & Natter have made some beautiful knitted poppies.  Look out for these at the Christmas Tree Festival in Cudham Church (1st to 9th December 2018) on the Remembrance Tree.
