It's more than just a knitting group
It's combatting loneliness and isolation amongst our friends, family and neighbours.

Meeting weekly I run a 'Sit & Knit' project where elderly people within my local community who are suffering from issues surrounding isolation and loneliness are invited to come together to have a knit and a natter while we share tea, laughter and worries.
We meet every Tuesday 10-11.30 at The Purple Spoon cafe in the YMCA Highbridge
If you can't make the face to face session we have a live interactive chat group knitting session, over on Facebook (sign up here) Thursday evenings 7-8pm and everyone is welcome.
For our current project we're making mini hats to raise money for Age UK Somerset as part of THE INNOCENT BIG KNIT fundraiser, so if you can make a rectangle you're already winning
Buy one box or sign up so that each month you receive a pattern plus all the tools you need to work with during the Thursday night live group chats.
Each pattern provides the opportunity for you to build a selection of gifts for friends and family this Christmas and to make life easier you will also receive wrapping paper and a matching gift tag exclusive to Hurd & Co.
As a much loved member you gain exclusive access to video tutorials that will hold your hand at every stage and support you to learn how to knit at your own pace.
It's perfect for absolute beginners.
Best of all £2 from the sale of each box goes directly to Age UK Somerset to ensure they can continue to provide fantastic local service and support.
