Closely Knit

Closely Knit is the group which usually meets for coffee, crafts and chat every Saturday morning from 10 am until noon at St Edwards. During the pandemic we were unable to meet, but now that the church is open again we are planning to restart the group on Saturday 25th September.  

Everyone is welcome so just come along and visit us. Bring your own knitting, crochet or other craft projects or just turn up and join in with whatever the group is working on. We are also grateful to receive any donations of knitting wool.

In July 2017 and July 2019 during Stow Festival Closely Knit spent time in St Edward's Hall knitting, talking to visitors about knitting and all sorts of topics and selling items created by the group in aid of St Edward's Church.


Projects we've knitted or crocheted include:

  • scarves and blankets  for GARAS
  • poppies for the Remembrance Day appeal
  • flower arrangements for hospital patients (below left)
  • the Closely Knit tree "Angels and Shepherds" at the Christmas Tree Festival at St Edward's Church (below right), decorated with knitted nativity pieces

We look forward to seeing you there!
