The 'Misfits'

We call ourselves the 'Misfits' but we are really a bunch of ordinary folks who've needed help themselves and found each other through crafting, which has made their lives so much richer. We complement and help each other and want to help our community to live the best lives they can. 

'There are many things that have contributed to me still fighting on after a devastating family tragedy, but this group is a major factor. ' Lauren 

We know, how we've grown and see it in many others we have come in contact with over the last two years.  We meet many lonely and isolated people through or High Street shop and classes.

The Poppy Project

Crafting is known to help people with wellbeing and mental health problems.

We build self-confidence through practical activities and support interaction and inclusion within the local community. We also run practical craft classes for children which helps with fine motor skills and social /behavioural problems.
