Nicki Auf der Maur sent me some details about some charity knitting - please help if you can...
We were wondering if any of your
members would be interested in helping us to knit things for our “Wrap
up a Kiddie” campaign?
All the children we knit (and sew)
for are being supported by the London charity, Kids Company (www.kidsco.org.uk)
and are growing up in very precarious
conditions and circumstances indeed.
We knit scarves, hats, mittens,
cardigans, jumpers, blankets of all shapes sizes and colours for them –
there are children from tiny babies to teenagers being helped via Kids
Company and so we can find a home for any items
in virtually any size and colour!
We would also like to collect some
knitting supplies to share amongst those who can knit but are not able
to buy wool etc.
There is a website here with more information about the entire project
(knitting and sewing):
Louise from Louise Tall Jewellery contacted me as she's set up a new knit 'n' natter meeting
for those who can't make it on a weekend or an evening. It's on Tuesdays at 10 am in Jika Jika on George Street.
Please email her if you would like more information...
