The heart of the village

Monday: 2.00pm – 4pm

A sociable and friendly gathering where you can be inspired by our varied abilities of fantastic crafts such as knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, lace making, tatting, embroidery and quilting.  With the emphasis on fun, good conversation and company; these fireside traditional crafts bring the heart of the village together.

Whether you’re a beginner, want to refresh your skills or want to advance your knowledge – we’ve got something for everyone and we’re adding new crafts all the time.

Sharing our love of crafts to help others – from the very young to the very old



We are a group that regularly knit bonnets, booties, blankets and the very useful ADAPT triangles and they are always gratefully received by staff on the units at University Hospitals of Leicester.

The Big Knit is a joint campaign between Age UK and innocent drinks to help vulnerable older people. We knit the hats, innocent drinks wear them and 25p of every drink sold will go to Age UK. Help us make a difference!!
