Meets on the First and Third Thursdays of each month 10-12 noon in the Higham Village Hall with a charge of £1.50 for each member per session.

It is a needle-craft group –crochet, knitting, beadwork, boutis, ruskinwork and bag making.

The session usually begins with a cup of coffee and biscuits as we sit at individual tables arranged in a circle to enable talking and working throughout the morning.

Members have demonstrated their craft which attracts new members and also gives a clear understanding of the craft. All in all a very pleasant and peaceful way to spend a Thursday morning.

Next meetings – Thursdays 20 February, March 4th, March 18th
