There are two fantastic community knitting projects taking place in Warwickshire:
Poppy Appeal being organised by St Mary’s Church in Warwick
This is a countywide project and donations of poppies are encouraged from all organisations and community groups. Please see the links to the website and facebook page below:
The Big Knitted Christmas Tree
Spend time with others to knit squares for a BIG KNITTED CHRISTMAS TREE!
Your squares will join those knitted by others to create a 17ft Community Christmas tree on display at All Saints Church, Emscote from December 2018.
Come and see what we build together!
THE TREE OF INTENT 2017
Mark your group’s intention of joining in with the BIG knitted Christmas Tree by making a Tree of Intent. Follow simple instructions we can provide and make and decorate your own tree to be on display with others at All Saints for the beginning of December 2017.
Tree’s of Intent (or A4 photo’s of your tree) need to be at All Saints Church by Thursday 24th November, 2017 to be included for display.
If your group is intending to join in with the BIG knitted Christmas tree project we’d love to know.
