Welcome to the Blanket Room for 2020.

We hope you will enjoy the variety of squares/blankets/designs 

that will be featured throughout this year.

If you spy some squares or even a blanket or two that you have crafted

please do let us know.

There's nothing like a group celebration.  :))

We rejoice in your talents and generosity.  

Here's a little taster of what you might see....

So, please keep your eyes peeled for your wonderful crafting and know that each and every square or blanket you create, is much needed and much appreciated.

Praise and many thanks to our sewing team who take our individual crafting, mix and match squares and sew these beautiful blankets together.

They are all so lovely.  That one of all the mitred squares is just amazing!

We are very lucky that we volunteers that have been able to get to The Barn have supplied us with these marvelous photos.

A note from Estelle on October 13;

We received about 50 new blankets this morning, most came in from our local sewing volunteers but a couple came in from some of our long standing overseas contributors, Jill Lea and Valerie Zalewski.

It was wonderful to see some familiar names again in the mix of post this post is Estelle and my attempt to get pics of blankets onto the blanket room of KnitASquare’s forum, as currently we are without a volunteer to fulfil this role.

In the interim at least our Facebook KnitASquare community can be kept abreast and maybe even see some of their wonderful handiwork here. Sadly colours don’t translate all that well but there weee some wonderful ones in the mix from Molly, Mands, Linda, Liz, Audrey, Estelle and four from me, twelve of which are on their way to new orphans of the Kambazuma outreach in Harare 🙏🏻 with the kind help of Tanja.

Thank you Amy for posting these pics. Athelé and I think it’s so special and important for our  contributors to see the final product of the hours they spend creating these beautiful squares. The cherry on the top is if they can see their blankets wrapped around a vulnerable child. Ath and I try to get those photos every time we do a distributIon.   

Are you saying you need somebody this end to take on the job of posting photos of the Blanket Room on the Forum? I'd be willing to do that provided I get step by step instructions as to what I have to do.

My goodness!   Thanks ever so much for a chance to see some great blankets again.   They're beautifully crafted and obviously made with lots of love, K x ❤️

Fabulous blankets!  I am amazed to see so many.  Kudos to all the SA volunteers for working and contributing under such conditions.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
