hands of love – help needed

(This is a great excuse to keep making, especially if your house is already full and all of your family and friends are groaning under the handmade gifts you’ve made for them!)

Would you like to help us make quilts to give away to people in need?

We meet on the 3rd Friday of each month from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. if you’d like to join us. Message me for details!

Here’s an example of things we’ve made so far:Hands of Love b

We are looking for the following items:

  • quilts/blankets – sewn, knitted or crocheted (minimum size 1.6 m x 1.4 m)
  • jumpers/pullovers – especially for older children, teenagers and adults (crew neck preferable)
  • scarves, beanies, mittens, bedsocks
  • knitted teddy bears

[Note – no used items please; all items must be newly made for this project]

Contact me here if you’d like to  know more!
