Stitch and the Estate
have teamed up to knit a scale model of the Aylesbury Estate which is
sadly due to be demolished. They are aiming to capture the very fibre
of the estate in wool and fabric and with over 2,500 homes to create
they need your help to do it.
They welcome all
knitters, experienced or novice to take part in knitting perhaps a
window or even a whole block. Open community knitting sessions will be
happening throughout July and August and materials will be provided.
