THE exhibition

The exhibition was held at The United Reformed Church in Walkern on 26th and 27th June. We were very proud to show some truly beautiful work made by such talented and creative people.

It was a wonderful inspiring display of incredible knitting from both experienced and novice knitters.
Not forgetting crochet.
George Clooney was there!
The tea table was a great success.

Linda and Dany with Mary, who is a fantastic knitter and an elder at the URC.
The weather was perfect.
Libby helped with the cake stall.
And teas were served in lovely garden outside. The bric - a - brac stall was a triumph and some fantastic prizes were donated for the raffle.
The whole event was a great success. We raised £800 for the URC towards the restoration and renovation of the church which is 200 yrs old this year and subsiding.
We would like to thank everyone for all their help and hard work over the weekend, without whom we couldn't have done it; Diane, Paula, Trish, Julie, Sue Ford, Carolyn, Jo, Sue Noyes, Sandra, Sophie, Susan, Brenda, Sue Butchers, Karen, Donna, Debbie, Sally, Mandy, Rosalind, Olga, Mary, Jackie, Annie, Libby, Poppy and Scarlett. Also huge thanks to Pam Williams and Walkern's 'Over Sixties' for making such delicious cakes.
