New Year

With the New Year come new challenges. We are always being asked for knitted items to raise money so anything especially small knitted toys which are easy to sell are very welcome. We have been asked for small wild life animals by a local branch of the wildlife trust, eg. hedgehogs, owls, birds, foxes or badgers etc

Knitted Breasts

We have been asked by Breastfeeding Friends for lots of knitted breasts, this is what they said " Health visitors work in the community with expectant and new mums. One of our most useful teaching aids for feeding is a knitted breast! We need lots for all our staff."
