The Knitting Circle That Never Stops

Every Wednesday over the past at least 16 years, a group of knitters and crafty folk have met to enjoy a spot of ‘down-time’ and each other’s company.

The Circle began with a notice all those years ago in the Chronicle calling for anyone who would like to meet to gather at a café and since that time the group has moved to various locations (all with good coffee!).  Today, the group meets at Orca and any-one is welcome to join.

Among highlights in its history has been being awarded a place in the iconic Art to Wear event, for a knitting skirt/poncho and umbrella combination, raising funds for St John Ambulance and other worthy organisations through raffling knitted creations, producing hundreds of beanies and woollen singlets for charity.
