We’d love to help them.
Here’s how…
We are going to run an online Easter Craft sale  in a very similar way to our successful  Christmas craft fundraiser. All funds raised will be donated to MIND.
We’d love your help…
We are looking to make and sell small/lightweight Eastery/Spring/gorgeous items, sewn, crocheted, knitted, crafted, the how is up to you! To keep postage costs to a minimum we ask that ideally anything made can be sent on to a buyer in a Large envelope, which is 35cm by 25cm, no thicker than 2.5cm, 750g max. Or smaller obvs 🙂

Up and down the country, fabulous folk are making small craft items which we will sell through this Event Page.

Our Sale takes place over two days starting Tuesday 8th April at 11am finishing on Wednesday 9th April at 9pm.

You can see photos of all the lovely things that will be on sale in our pre sale viewing album here……


From 11am on April 8th we are going to post batches of items on the wall, starting with the first 10 from Album One and work our way through. To buy an item, you will need to be the first to post your name next to the photo. We will then clearly be able to see who has bought, and will thank you and ask you to PM us with the item number and a postal address. We can then arrange for payment with you. Ideally through PayPal, but cash or cheque is fine too.

Do bear with us, we will acknowledge your purchase and reply to your PM asap! Our Paypal is admin@woollyhugs.com When paying for a purchase, please include a note with your name and the item number, and say it is for MIND.

Huge thanks once again. Fingers crossed this will be a great success and we can help the lovely folk at MIND help even more lovely folk.
