 New stretch target

UPDATE AGAIN: OMG - WOW you folks!  

This is just amazing and I'm blown away by the support you're showing.  I worried that £500 would be hard to hit, but you've helped my hit my stretch target twice... so I've just increased the target to £5,000 - can we do it?  Let's see the community show up for this next push!


UPDATE: this community keeps blowing me away so I've increased the stretch target again to £3,500 - lets see how close we can get to this by the end of June!

Everything we raise will go to the Terrence Higgins Trust - hitting an even bigger target will help us to support them even more!

Multiple Prizes of Amazing Items - donated by my favourite yarn brands and friends!

I wanted to run a prize draw where I get to giveaway some of my hand made items. So I contacted some of my amazing yarny friends who all stepped up and gave me donations.  

I couldn't have run this giveaway without their support so want to thank Max, Vincent, Kerry, Marcus, Stephen, Ted, James, Dan, Kitey and Ellie.

There are 14 prizes which will be drawn in the order they're listed below.  I have noted the amazing small business next to the listing so you know who has donated the yarn or project.

  • Woven wrap - Max & Vincent from Les Garcons
  • Large sheep cream - Toft

The 1st two prizes were kindly gifted to me by Max & Vincent for this prize draw and I'm so grateful for their support.  All the other finished items were made by me!

If you win any of the skeins and you're not a knitter or crocheter, I'm happy to make you something with your prize yarn (but please be patient - we can chat about options!)
