One Small Piece knitting group
Epuni Primary School community room
Every Thursday our lovely volunteers knit with the children of Epuni Primary School. The children learn how to knit a square, then stitch their square to other squares donated by the wider community. Once they have enough squares to make a blanket they learn how to crochet the edges together. Then they get to take their blanket home to help keep them warm and cosy.
The children have donated a blanket to a chimpanzee at Wellington Zoo, and they’ve gifted blankets to newborn babies at Hutt Hospital. And once the kids have finished their blankets they can try other tricky things, like slippers.
Please join us! Together, we knit.
Lisa Bridson is a local Hutt City Councillor, mum and knitter.

How can you help?
We welcome donations of quality wools and knitting needles. If you can send us a knitted square our children will stitch it into one of their blankets. Or we always appreciate knitted clothing and accessories to keep our children warm through winter.
