In preparation for our Christmas events, we are collecting knitted or crocheted stars - it would be fantastic if the churches in the group could be filled with these handcrafted stars at Christmas.
If you can crochet or knit (or perhaps know someone who has one of these skills) and would like to contribute some stars please get clicking and looping away!
Our colour theme is gold, silver, white, yellow and cream and the stars can be of any size, but the larger the better as they will stand out more! Use any pattern you like but there are a couple below in case you haven’t got one.
Thank you in advance and we look forward to seeing you at our Christmas events.
A good pattern for knitting a star can be found here.
