Our charity work

We believe that it’s important as a business to give to others who may be less fortunate, or who could benefit from homemade treats and comforts. Here are some of the current projects we are privileged to be able to support.

Project Linus

They do this by providing new home-made patchwork quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets, which gives volunteers across the UK the opportunity to contribute to their local community.

We have 36 “Quilty Pleasure” quilters who have made up over 55 quilts to date – a fantastic amount, with more to come.

Please contact us if you’d like to help with this project.

Fidget Blankets for Alzheimer’s

We have scheduled four drop-in afternoon classes for 2018 where you can make up “Fidget Blankets” for people with Alzheimer’s.

People with Alzheimer’s sometimes feel that they need to “fidget and fix things” because they need to do something with purpose. Using a Fidget Blanket can have a beneficial effect, helping the person to feel less “lost” or agitated.

Our 2018 Fidget Blanket classes are on 1st March, 29th March, 26th April and 24th May. These are free of charge and you can just drop in to whichever session(s) you like.

Find out all about the classes here, or check out our Fidget Blanket board on Pinterest to see photos of some completed blankets.
