Knit and Natter
Group Leader - Jane Purdue (01202 829811)

At: Home


Friday 2.00 -4.00pm

The Knit and Natter  group are a friendly lot. We all enjoy knitting, crocheting, toy making and helping charities.
To date we have provided:

  • Bournemouth Hospital with Twiddle mitts for patients with Alzheimer’s/Dementia.
  •  Hats, scarfs, blankets and toys for overseas missions in Africa and India. 
  • Knitted items for the Lullaby Trust (sudden infant death) supporting the charity’s regular craft stalls.

We all have our own projects as well, and learn new skills from each other. Some of us are long established crafters, other beginners and everything in between.  The most important element of the group is the camaraderie, fun laughter and shared interest in all things craft for ourselves and others.
We are currently a group of ten regulars which pretty much fills my lounge so although we always welcome newcomers, a call before to check that we have space would be helpful.


Hi I am Jane Purdue the new leader of Knit and Natter.  I have lived in Verwood for 10 Years joining the U3A in my retirement. The U3A has provided me with interest, continuous learning,  fun and new friends. I belong to several groups including the Knit and Natter.  Unfortunately, Jan who was the founder member is no longer able to continue in her role as Group Leader,  so I agreed to take on the group in my bungalow.
