Knitting Groups

“In stitches @ St Georges” is an informal group who meet together with a common enjoyment of knitting or crotchet. The group is based in the village of Ruishton just a few miles from Taunton in Somerset.

The group meets on the 2nd Friday of every month in the Meeting Room of St George's Church in Ruishton, between 10 – 12 noon. New members are always welcome.

Meetings are very informal. Each year the group chooses a project to work on together. This project provides plenty of knitting or crotchet to keep everyone as busy as they wish. Members can however if they wish bring their own work to a meeting or can take the opportunity to ask advise or learn a new skill. The “Noah's Ark” story sack is now almost complete and will soon be given to Ruishton Church

How to find Ruishton Church Meeting Room (TA3 5LL)

Looking at Ruishton Church from Church Lane, the white gates of “The Old Vicarage” are on your left. Go through those gates and follow the left fork of the driveway for about 40m. The modern brick building of the Church Meeting Room will appear ahead.

Our “yarn bombing” tableaux for Taunton Live 2017 celebrates the Queen's 65 year reign, her Sapphire Jubilee. We are pleased to have found an indoor location this year and our Queen (not the real one!) will be enjoying tea and cake in Jenny's Tea Rooms, Bath Place from July 24th – 29th. Early in August she will be relocated to enjoy her tea and cakes in Ruishton Church, so please pop in and say “hello”.

The Creech Knitting Group meets every other week for a cup of tea, a chat and, of course, lots of knitting.  Knitted strips are made into blankets and many jumpers, hats and scarves are also produced.  Other people make knitted items at home which are then passed on to the group.  The items are forwarded to 'Christian Response for Eastern Europe' who ship them to Moldova, Europe's poorest cThe knitters show what they have madeountry, providing warm clothing for many who live in poverty.  Some of the smaller items produced by the group are also included in the shoeboxes that are filled each year by church members for the 'Operation Christmas Child' charity who bring a bit of Christmas cheer to children in Africa and Eastern Europe.
