Sarah Trappitt, group leader says, ‘We will be starting our knitted square blanket for charity. All welcome, even if you can’t yet knit. Bring your knitting needles and spare balls of wool.’
‘Our next meeting is tonight, Thursday 3rd March, says Sarah Trappitt, Hobby Group Co-ordinator.’
‘We had a good first evening and cut out letters for the Market Harborough WI bunting. 10 people attended and we all took some home to make. Some of us are planning to make some little mice to sell at the Craft Sale and will be blinging them up together at our next meeting. Items will be sold at our Craft Fair on Saturday 16 April.’
‘Everyone there felt the 1st Thursday each month was a good time to meet. We discussed paying a smalll sum each meeting to help pay for the room but this will need to go before the Committee.’
In the meantime, new members are very welcome, so do come along this evening to see what it’s all about.

‘I really enjoyed the first hobby night meeting, starting to make the bunting and having a chat. Thanks all,’ says MHWI member, Tansy Tilly.
‘We thought it would be fun to make/ accessorise the mice at the next hobby night, Thurs March 3rd. The knitting can be started ready for stuffing at the meeting, or little accessories got together to decorate if you prefer, or just turn up and do what you fancy on the night.’
We look forward to seeing the finished mice for sale at our craft fair in the Old Grammar School on Saturday 16 April.
Tansy has shared the instructions, too. Instructions for little knitted mouse
