A knitting club is a wonderful way to enjoy a lifelong hobby and make new friends. You may be surprised by how many residents get involved!
You can run this group weekly or fortnightly, depending on the interest and feedback from residents. Even those who cannot knit anymore should be invited to come along and mentor others. New residents should also be invited along to enjoy the company and have a chat.
Ask for donations of wool from family members and staff.
Make it even more fun by working on themed projects for special events, seasons or charities.
Serve afternoon tea and use the opportunity to reminisce.
