If you would like to spend a couple of hours a month relaxing with knitting needles or a crochet hook, yarn and a cuppa in hand, the Needles and Hooks group at the Guild could be perfect for you. 

Often one of the group will offer to teach a new technique, but always those attending can get assistance with current projects, or explore the Guild library for patterns for their next project.

We welcome new members as well as anyone just popping in anytime.
