A Stitch in Time

The ladies of NEPHRA’s Knit and Natter Group, who meet every Thursday morning at NEPHRA HQ,  have completed a very special scarf for a geologist based in Oldham. Each of the stripes in the multi-coloured scarf, which measures over 15 feet in length, represents a period of time in the geological history of the Earth. The project took many weeks to complete and the recipient geologist was suitably impressed!

Some of the knitters are also members of Friday’s computer class where they have been learning ways to present digital images effectively. They decided to take regular photographs during the making of the scarf – including the day they handed it over to the geologist, and they have now created a short film for you all to enjoy!

Betty’s Bit and Bobs!

Betty’s Bit s and Bobs is a short film made by local resident,Elizabeth Corrie.  We are pleased to announce that it has been included in The Manchester Museum of Science & Industry’s MOSI-Along/Cabinets of Curiosities Project. The Museum is working in patnership with a number of groups and agencies – its mission being to encourage local people to connect and share their memories and stories in a digital format. Betty produced the film over several weeks with the help of other members of NEPHRA’s Friday afternoon computer classes.

In the film, Betty talks about a number of items that feature in her own cabinet of curious objects, so feel free to watch, listen and enjoy!
