Beacon Cast-Offs get all geared up for Christmas

21 September 2018

With only 91 days left until Christmas MBC’s Beacon Cast-Off group have begun their preparation. The merry band of sewers, knitters and crocheters are already busy pinning, clicking and purling their way through a catalogue of seasonal patterns in an effort to produce goods which nearer the big day will be sold at a number of local charity Christmas Fairs. 

I only popped in for a few minutes but already finished were a number of colourful scarves, some beautiful covers for glass candle holders, the cutest little Ferrero Rocher holders you have ever seen and of course a growing pile of knitted wool squares which when stitched together will form wonderfully cosy blankets.

Kate Slater and Susan Hartley arrange these sessions which are held in the MBC Music Room on the third Saturday of each month. If you would like to join them please feel free.

Oh and there’s always plenty of tea, coffee and cake.
