A craft group has been set up and are helping knit a way for Preston to remember those killed in the First World War.Advertisement
The Crafty Project are a group of knitters and crocheters in the city, which was founded just over a year ago by Kim Hughes and Gemma Patterson.
Meeting on a weekly basis they have an age range of 19 to 62, and have lots of community events planned.
Founding member Kim, 24, said: “We try to keep it fun and lighthearted.
“Come and join us, crochet and knitting can be fun, it’s not just something that your gran does.
“If you can’t knit or crochet there is always someone willing to teach you, there is always a spare hook and ball of wool around. Maybe you have a craft that you can show us.”
The group are working with the city council to knit poppies for Remembrance Sunday, in a project thought up by group member Deb Simpson.
They meet every Sunday at 1pm at the Korova arts and cafe bar on St Wilfrid Street.
A Facebook page for the group gives information on when and where they meet.
