Friends with Threads

This group of creative, generous and enthusiastic people

knit or crochet to create articles of clothing, toys and blankets for people in need whatever the circumstances. 

2021: Get-togethers will be re-thought.


2021 will be the year of: Bears, Pocket Pals & Baby Blankets

PLEASE NOTE: No get-togethers in the studio until further notice.

Follow our FB page for inspiration and patterns & updates.

In both those FB pages you will find many of the patterns we use under FILES.

We arrange Zoom get-togethers from time to time. 

Please e-mail me should you wish to join us so I can add you to the session. 

Bring your latest project and let's share some time together. Let me know if we should expect you.

Remember we still need teddies, beanies and, and, and…
