Buttons and Bows

New Term October 2018

The workshop for Buttons and Bows, that is held in the main hall of the Memorial hall, Slyne-with-Hest has completed another successful year. We will resume our workshops again  in October,  the second Tuesday 2018 at 1-30 pm until 3-30 pm.

 Our ladies are very productive knitting, sewing and producing delightful crocheted garments that are then sent out to various places in Africa, Europe and locally.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we know where the garments are sent to and that the children receive them. We have photographic evidence for people to view.
Our work is about making to give. Primarily for children who have been abandoned or in need, from birth up until they are thirteen or fourteen.
We are a friendly, inclusive group that are open to welcome new ladies.
There is always someone to teach new skills or share ideas.
So when you think of winter and those dark days, cast a thought towards ‘Buttons and Bows’ for a new group to join.
