Thursday 01 Jul 21 No times Available


If you have been waiting for something crafty and creative to do, Francis House has the perfect activity for you!

Having stocked up on your craft supplies and with your knitting needles at the ready, it is time to take part in our Virtual Knit Off contest.

Show off your greatest knitted creation to be in with a chance to win

Whether its colourful combinations or character knits, we want to send us your pictures of your proudest piece of knitting or crocheting and you could win a prize!

It costs just £3 to enter a photograph of your knitted / crocheted item and there are five fun categories to choose from:

  •    The natural world
  •    Cuddly soft toy
  •    Novice knitter
  •    Beautiful baby item
  •    Attractive accessory

Our judging panel will then draw up a shortlist of entries for each of the five categories.

These will be displayed on our website and open for voting by the public. If you are lucky enough to be shortlisted make sure you tell your family and friends to vote for you!
