Afternoon Craft Hivers
The Craft Hive had a message from the lovely Megan Davidson of Kurunda asking if we would be interested in gathering together, acting as the HUB for knitted or crocheted squares for the victims of the Tassie Bush Fires and assembling these crafted with love squares into blankets
“To me I could send some money but with yarn I can send love and comfort . . .I’m sure no one would mind if people add any messages onto tags maybe where in the country or world it is from, what inspired that piece or even thoughts of encouragement” MD
YES of course we would love to support this heart felt initiative
So, let’ get started . . .
I have started an event on Facebook here . . .
Please invite your communities along
If you are a Ravelry user, Megan has begun an instagram-along-ers group here . . .
and for posting on instagram, twitter, anywhere you find yourself posting, you can use the hashtag:
The Craft Hive will act as a hive to collect these hearty squares and we will create further events in February to craft the blankets together
8 inch squares
Crochet or Knit squares welcome
Please attach a message if you like
& perhaps sew a tag sharing where your square has come from
Drop in to our large ORANGE MAIL BOX in the lobby of The Craft Hive (147 Liverpool Street, Hobart)

You are an inspiration
