See you on Saturday!

Good morning everyone,

For those of you that are Rugby World Cup fans, I hope you’re getting some good crafting time in front of the TV.


Singlets and Slippers


Thanks to all the crafters around the country who have been trying out new patterns, and making slippers and singlets, and getting them to the Coordinators in your regions. It’s the simple act of one person making one small item for one random stranger in need that really makes the crafting world so special.



I just wanted to send out this quick final reminder of the 3 events that are on Saturday, and hope that lots of you are heading along to one or other of them.

Lisa has several speakers lined up to talk to the group in Tauranga, and I believe they are staggered throughout the day.



In Wellington, we’ve got 8 speakers lined up to talk about the charities that they represent. If last year is anything to go by, the information shared will be as interesting and as varied as the different crafting items that you all make for their end recipients.

I’ve had a txt from Elizabeth from Whangarei who will be in Wellington for the weekend and is going to join us, and I’m very much looking forward to meeting you! I’ve also heard that some other crafters are in the city for WOW, so hopefully we might even see a few from other parts of the country at our event in Newlands.




Barbara has Licinda with her in Christchurch, so both Kiwi Family Trust and Wrap Up Our Schools will be represented, and there will be loads of stories shared.


Please do feel free to bring your crafty friends, and youngsters that want to learn to craft to any of the events, and join us for as little or as much time as you have available.

Bring along whatever project you’re working on, we are always keen to see the lovely things that you’re all making.

All three venues will have some yarn stash available, and lots of lovely people to chat to.


Huge thanks to everyone involved with getting these 3 events up and running.

I hope you all have a fantastic time.


And for those of you that aren’t able to make it along… there’s always next year!


Yours – with love, compassion and hope.
