Happy New Year to one and all. We hope 2016 brings you health and happiness. We've had a busy, exciting and rewarding year in 2015 and look forward to sharing another with you in the year ahead.
To celebrate the New Year we'd like to share some of the highlights of last year with you in our calendar for 2016 - the fundraising in aid of Mary's Meals, the fabric books, cuddly toys, play mats and blankets for Little Libraries to take to township creches in Cape Town, the ponchos, hats, cuddly toys, dresses, shorts and of course blankets for Lily - Love in the Language of Yarn to distribute to Syrian refugee families and the sensory items for adults with dementia in a local care home.
We hope you enjoy the glimpses of just a few of these items and memories in our 2016 calendar photos and that you find the year at a glance calendar helpful in organising your own year ahead..
A look back at 2015 has to include our sincere thanks to all of you who have helped us in what we do. To DHL couriers and D W Cases in Musselburgh we owe such a huge debt of gratitude because without your support we couldn't send our overseas parcels. Thank you edinburghprinting.com for your brilliant editing and printing of our calendar. Last, but not least, thank you Leo's Beanery for allowing us to take over your back room every Wednesday afternoon.
Thank you to our donors for supporting us in 2015 with your donations of fabric, yarn and haberdashery. Thank you to our social media followers for all your kind comments via our Facebook Page and email. They really do encourage us to keep going.
Roll on 2016 with all the challenges and joys it will bring us. We are so grateful to you all for helping us to help others in need. Please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining us, donating materials or helping in 2016. Find out more about what we do on Craft Tea for Charity
