We invite residents from your nursing homes to come together with local schools or grandchildren to knit a beautiful bunting pattern representing connection helping to regain a sense of community, creativity and connection for all involved.
knit -Stitch is a fun knitting project a powerful social healer and no better way than between two people. We believe knitting gives us a powerful reminder that for us to exist we need to keep that invisible thread between us , we need each other.
Our knitting is about connections, the invisible thread between children and older people has become frayed. We aim to strengthen this bond with wool and magic, by knitting a beautiful bunting together representing friendship, courage, strength and most importantly knitting our lives back together.
Sharing moments and creating memories through the tradition of knitting is also at the heart of this very special activity .
Participant's will have a sense of pride and connection to their local area and schools we recommend this project to be delivered through zoom initially depending on the current restrictions and then come together to tie the bunting together when suitable.
This project includes a double knitting kit for two people one for a child and one for an adult bringing young and older people together.
