Nearly time for our WNFeast fundraising stall this Sunday 4th December!
We will have new and improved wreathes, stocking fillers and great handmade gifts made by our ‘Stitchees’ which helps us keep the community group free to everyone who wants to have a go at making, up-cycling, fixing and mending their clothing as well as learn lots of new skills 🙂
West Norwood Feast are also selling their new 2017 Calendar so keep an eye out for that Feast fans!
Knitting West Norwood Together update…
To all of you who knitted a square to raise money for our local refugee charity, South London Refugee Association…the knitted quilt is coming on a treat 🙂
This photo doesn’t show even half of the squares knitted by the local community!
Our Stitchee Elaine’s brilliant handiwork for the Feast blanket
A huge thank you to those who came to our Knit a Long at November’s Feast – it was freezing but the rain stayed away until the last minutes of the market – hoorah!
Even the Feast Volunteers join in with the Knitting
So many squares…
Some of the ‘Stitchees’ show great determination (or just plain nuts!) as they sat in the cold knitting up a storm… maybe they should have sat in the box of blanket squares????
seriously hardcore… knitting from midday until the very end – I gave up after less than an hour as my hands were too cold 😉
You can buy raffle tickets at the WN Feast to win the blanket and all proceeds will go to the South London Refugee Association
We hope to see you there and wrap up warm!
