Our Close Knit Craft Group meet weekly, if you are interested in any wool craft, knitting, tapestry, crochet come along for a cuppa and join others in a friendly and supportive group.
Knitting, knotting and stitching helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, while helping us retain cognitive brain function and physical dexterity as we get older.
The organisation Knit for Peace carried out a widespread literature review looking at the health benefits of the traditional craft after receiving testimonials from their 15,000 volunteers about how the hobby had improved their lives.
They discovered that knitting is as relaxing as yoga, distracts from chronic pain, such as arthritis, boosts wellbeing, brings down blood pressure and keeps the mind sharp. It also can reduce loneliness and isolation.
