We are delighted to be announcing Woolly Hugs’ Easter Craft Sale to raise funds for the fabulous charity MIND.

MIND is a charity dedicated to supporting anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They offer sound information, advice and support to individuals, and also campaign tirelessly to raise public awareness and promote understanding of issues relating to mental health. To read more about the fantastic work they do, read on here.

“We’re here to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.” MIND

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 smile

Some suggestions for you but we are open to others
* Easter decorations - chicks, eggs, sheeeeps, rabbits.
* Easter/spring bunting
* Brooches
* Other Stuff???!!!

Last posting for crafts to be FRIDAY 28th MARCH thanks
Please PM for posting information.

If you’d like to contribute funds to help others craft, then we’d love to hear from you. Our paypal is and make sure you add a contact name and note that it is for MIND.

The Sale itself will take place during the week beginning Monday 6th April, actual dates to be confirmed, it will be run through our Facebook page MNWoollyHugs. All details we will share on here, on FB and Twitter @MNWoollyHugs nearer the time.

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.

Lovely Ninja has just left and is thinking about what to make


yegodsandlittlefishes Fri 28-Feb-14 14:37:06

Oooh MIND? Yes I will want to make things. Can't think how or what just now, will have to think! (I've just been looking at starfish, seahorse and fish patterns. Not very Eastery!) grin

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 28-Feb-14 14:39:37

Ah x posts Woolfey - thank you so much, you are a STAR, you both are thanks

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 28-Feb-14 14:45:34

Can you guess what this is?

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 28-Feb-14 14:45:54



yegodsandlittlefishes Fri 28-Feb-14 14:56:32

Is this the crochet equivalent to that inksplots tests psychiatrists used to use? (It all being in aid of MIND and all.)

I'm going to say it's a little pink rabbit.

yegodsandlittlefishes Fri 28-Feb-14 15:00:08

If I am wrong, then I am just going to say I have a creative imagination and it would still be a good bunny.

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 28-Feb-14 15:04:39

It IS a little pink bunny!



HoggyTruffle Fri 28-Feb-14 15:12:04

Will there be fighting on sale day again over who buys the sheep?

I'll put my thinking cap on. I have to do stealth crafting as the DCs try and nab anything I make.

NellVarnish Fri 28-Feb-14 15:15:17

Pistey, shhh I'm in hiding from the BootCamp thread - I've been bad. V v v bad.

And I don't care. grin

I'll make some things for you - not sure what yet, but will have a think.

Love your little rampant rabbit! ;)

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 28-Feb-14 15:17:54

Nelly I won't give you away...



Thank you so much, you are so good at this kinda thing, bless you X

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 28-Feb-14 15:18:08

I do hope so Hoggy grin

Love the idea of stealth crafting Smashing!

Thank you!!!!!!


NellVarnish Fri 28-Feb-14 15:21:50

thanks Pistey, mum's the word.

I saw the little teddies for Yorkhill too but I'm RUBBISH at knitting unless it's scarf shaped grin.

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 28-Feb-14 15:24:17
