Every Thursday morning at 10:00 am in The Community Room at West Cambridge.  The purpose of the group is to encourage everyone to develop new skills in knitting and embroidery in a most relaxed atmosphere. Many of our members have produced memorable articles which they have taken back home as very special souvenirs of Cambridge. The group is run by Janet Edwards and Kate Paterson.
