The Good Yarners

Evening yarn & textile-based craft sessions to bring our community together and share skills!

Meet up with crafters of all experience and abilities to create cheer and raise smiles.  We work as a team to crochet and knit (or wood work or craft) themed post box toppers and other artworks for display to brighten up people’s lives in Brandwood neighbourhoods.

Our next craft campaign launches on 15 August and is for the winter months and the Granny Square is at the heart of all the makes.  #NotJustForGrannies

We use yarn to do good and have a good yarn as we make!

Share skills & learn skills
