Knit &

Natter

Session Brief

Knitting, crochet, cross stitch, tapestry, weaving, sewing, spinning, rug making..... Always happy to teach, share ideas and have a chat, this is a group open to all people of all ages and experience. Even if you don’t enjoy knitting, come along for the natter. Our wonderful host Deb is one of The Bee Tree Community’s Creators and Directors and is a keen knitter (and natterer!)

The yarn forms the stitches, the knitting forges the friendships, the craft links the generations.

Session Details

How Does

It Work?

Members bring their projects; knitting, crochet, rugmaking, weaving and Deb creates a safe space in which they can share their work, tips, techniques and ideas, ask questions, learn from each other and chat together, generally about anything atall.

What do

I Need?

For the session you will need your laptop or mobile device and session zoom link, a quiet space to sit or lie down, and your project (although sometimes you may just want to come along and natter!)

What Do

I Do?

Deb will lead the session, so you get to just be there and relax, work on your project and to talk as much or as little as you like
