The most enormous thank you!
A truly extraordinary £2250 has been transferred today into the Meningitis Now account, their (rounded up, two thirds) share of the proceeds of our Christmas Craft Sale. Such a wonderful thing to be able to do on behalf of us all. Thank you so much again. The Woolly Hugs Crew never fail to amaze. We are both so proud to be part of this with you all. Thank you so much again!! xxx
Here’s what we did!!
Welcome to Woolly Hugs’ Christmas Craft Sale 2017 for the amazing charity Meningitis Now
So pleased to announce that this year’s Christmas craft sale will be supporting the much needed charity Meningitis Now. For EVERY family affected by this bloody disease and always remembering CatThiefKeith.
Meningitis Now is a fabulous charity supporting individuals and families, undertaking critical research and campaigns, and promoting increased awareness of meningitis. Have a look here…
*We will send two thirds of all we make to Meningitis Now and will keep one third for Woolly Hugs’ own ongoing projects to help keep them running and inclusive.
We shall need your support to make this the huge success we are hoping for, either as a crafter our buying something in the online sale, every penny helps. THANK YOU! xxx
We are aiming to make and sell small/lightweight Christmas craft items, and to keep postage costs to a minimum we ask that ideally anything made can be sent on to a buyer in a large envelope. We are open to larger items too obviously, that is just a guide.
Some suggestions for you, but we are very open to others too…
- Stocking fillers, although obviously Father Christmas is REAL, this is just to help.
- Christmas tree decorations, bunting, garlands, general decorations. Always very popular, as are totally bonkers quirky things, yes we are thinking woolly slugs and sock pigs, who knew??! 😀
- Small gifts – Little bags, purses, brooches, hair accessories, key rings, gift bags, tags,
- Clothing items such as gloves, hats, scarves, shawls – if making clothing PLEASE inc the ball band or let us know so we can pass this info on to those who buy. xxx
- Lovely lovely things!
*** Woolly, fabric, embroidered, beaded, all crafty crafts welcome!!***
