The Close- Knit Community will be returning to Abergavenny on 22nd March 2015. And it will be bigger and more stunning than ever!
This project is about celebrating our community and its link to Swayimane, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. We want as many people as possible to join in. So get your knitting needles/ crochet hooks out and make a square!
Squares should be 20 x 20cm (about 8 x 8") and made out of synthetic wool (so the wool doesn't felt on the tree and it's easier to wash when it's time to recycle the squares and turn them into blankets for other charities). Any colour goes- the brighter the better!
And not knowing how to knit or crochet is not an excuse! We are running informal 'learn the basics' sessions at Emmeline's Homebaking, Baker Street each Thursday 7- 9pm. More details on our Forthcoming Events page.
The link between Abergavenny and Swayimane was established in 2013 through Wales Africa Community Links, funded by the Welsh Government's Wales for Africa programme.
