A Harrogate charity supporting adults with disabilities will be sharing its achievements at this year’s Knitting and Stitching Show.

Craft Aid International aims to empower people with disabilities in the UK and the developing world to get involved in crafts and learn new creative skills.

They run weekly craft workshops in Harrogate, Ripon and Leeds and aim to provide a fun and caring environment for people to work as part of a team towards a common goal.

Outside of the UK, the charity is developing a project in Peru to set up a new crafts centre to provide training and employment for adults with disabilities living in poverty.

Anyone interested in donating and supporting the project in Peru, can visit: www.craftaidinternational.org/donate.html

Craft Aid International is at the Knitting and Stitching show which opens on November 24 at the Harrogate International Centre, and closes on November 27.

Participants from the Harrogate craft sessions will be helping behind the counter and working on their stand, teaching people how to make pom-poms using a special gadget as well as selling hand-made crafts.

The Harrogate craft sessions run on Thursdays from 1pm - 3pm at St. Andrew’s Church in Starbeck. Contact Susie Hart on 01423 202734 for more information.
