Leigh Belfairs

In Stitches

This group started in September 2018 and before we 'set sail' so to speak, we discussed what we would like to achieve and how to help one another gain various skills. Our aim was to donate all the things we made to charities, concentrating on those local to us.

We meet on the first Thursday of the month from 10am to noon, at Freda’s house at 11, Birchwood Drive, Leigh-on-Sea, SS9 3LD. I am pleased to be able to say that we will be having our first post Lockdown meeting on Thursday 2nd September, 2021.

Over the months we have knitted/crocheted a variety of garments.

We started by making 'Twiddlemnuffs', which help people with dementia, and scarves, which we donated to the Heart and Chest Clinic at Southend Hospital. We then moved on to making baby hats and cardigans for the premature baby unit at Southend Hospital.
Pre Lockdown I presented these garments to the Premature Baby Unit.

We then made poppies which we sold at our u3a meetings. We were then able to donate the money raised to the Royal British Legion which is very worthwhile cause.

There is room for 1 extra car on my drive but others would need to find a space nearby.
I have been given a large quantity of wool so you will only need to supply your own knitting and/or crochet needles and there will be a small fee for refreshments.
If you are interested in joining please contact me via the Contact page on this site, or at our monthly meetings.

Many thanks Freda
