Tracey Cooke is beginning a new craft group called Stitch & Time, aiming to benefit mental health and develop friendships.
Tracey says: "We have a number of skilled people within the church and I would like to be able to branch out further and help one another. The only way I can achieve this, is with your help!
"The group is for anyone who would like to craft or learn a new skill, whether that be knitting, crochet, cross stitch, patch work, embroidery…… the list is endless. You can come along to the group with your portable piece, enjoy the company and learn from one another. This is for skilled and non-skilled people.
"I have a number of projects in mind but first I would like to start with pocket prayer patches – once completed the patch will be blessed with prayer."
The first welcome meeting will be at The Durham Centre at 6:30pm.
