Woolly Hugs

Make a square – Donations to the charity
All day drop in sessions

We are delighted to make our debut at Carry on Crafting Festival this summer and are excited to meet and introduce you to our wonderful charity Woolly Hugs.
Woolly Hugs is a busy online community run entirely on a voluntary basis. It is hoped that through our work, babies, children and their families will feel love, support, comfort and a physical reassurance through our blankets, and other handmade items, the sense of being loved and looked after.
The aim of our online community is to bring individuals together with the common goal of helping others, whilst also providing therapeutic value, supporting all.  We work hard to fundraise so that we can be inclusive, so all can craft for our charity  irrespective of whether they can afford to or not. Costs are not to be a barrier. Find out more about us and our projects on our website www.woollyhugs.org
We have a GOAL! During the weekend we will be knitting and crocheting six or twelve inch squares to create SNUG blankets for Looked After Children later this year. We need you! These are just drop ins, no need to book. So please do come and find us. We will provide all yarn for this, so bring yourself and your 4mm hooks or needles. Knit or crochet equally welcome as are squares by beginner or expert. Any donations towards our work will be very gratefully received.
We will have some chairs available, but if you have your own camping chair you might like to bring. With your love and support we hope to achieve at least one blanket by the end of the festival!
We look forward to meeting and crafting with you! Ginny and Gertie, Woolly Hugs.
