The Big Knit Appeal at Richmond Northampton

7 April 2015

Villagers from Richmond Northampton has taken on a Knitting and Crochet Challenge.

The challenge is to cover our village green with as many crochet and knitted blankets as possible. Everyone are very busy knitting, crocheting and sewing together 8inch squares to make one meter blankets.

We need a minimum of 190 blankets at 1 meter wide to cover the green and we have until June 2015 to do it.

The blankets will be laid out on a large plastic sheet on the lawn to stop any water or soil damage and will then be given to local charity " Baby Basics " who provide such items to mothers with new born and young babies.


If you can knit or crochet and would like to be part of the great challenge then please do so and drop off at our reception.
