Now people we are getting very good at this. With successful crafting for charity campaigns under our belts for Little Dresses for Africa, Mind, Ayrshire Hospice and RNLI we turn attention to knitting. I ran this campaign a few years ago with great success and then we only had 6 knitters. Imagine what we can do with more knitters.
The Knit A Square is a hugely successful charity based in South Africa. It supports AIDS orphans who may well be ill themselves. We knit squares and send them to the local ladies in South Africa, who make them up into blankets for the children. There are other items on their site now for more experienced knitters. I am a very basic knitter but even I can churn out squares. The instructions for the squares are HERE. If you would like to join in but are more of a crochet crafter the instructions are HERE.
Provisionally, we are running this campaign until the end of May. If you live on the island we can collect any knitting you do and if you live off island you can send your donations direct to South Africa or to us and we will post on for you.
Have I got a target? You bet I have. Am I telling you? No, because there will be a massive eye rolling thingy going on. Let’s just say that it is extremely ambitious and, at Crafts & Company, we need all the help we can get. If you would like to help just comment below or message us and we will add you to a distribution list. This email distribution list is just being set up and it is for anyone who would like to craft for charity.
Happy knitting everyone.
