Project Linus is named after the secruity blanket toting character from Peanuts comic strip and came to the UK in 2000. They aim to provide comforters to cancer patients, seriously ill, abused, bereaved or traumatised children from premature birth to 16 years old. Project Linus UK is 100% volunteer-based non-profit making so they rely on financial donations, unfinished quilting projects, fabric and sewing threads. If you would like to know more please go to their website www.projectlinus.co.uk
I was lucky enough to be invited to lunch and attend a hand over of finished quilts made by the generous ladies of Bracknell & Wokingham quilting group to Val the Surrey co-ordinator last Friday at Emmbrook Village Hall, they had managed to make 93 wonderful quilts for this worth while cause.
Rowan Pure Wool Worsted Mystery Afghan
Stitchery do are following the Mystery Afghan Knit-a-long project from Rowan.
Each week Rowan will issue a free pattern available in store or online at www.knitrowan.com
All the squares are knitted on size 4.5mm needles and you can choose to make a 17, 9 or 5 shade Afghan following Rowan’s suggestions or use your favourite shades to create your own masterpiece.
Each square should measure 20cm x 20cm and each one is created using a different stitch pattern which makes it very exciting.
We have a free colour pattern and the suggested colours for week one packaged and ready to go in store.

For the third year running we will be taking part in the Wokingham Arts Trail on the 21st and 22nd September.
Our opening hours will be Saturday 21st 9.30am to 5pm and Sunday 22nd 11am to 5pm
Please could we receive all squares by end of September which will be made into blankets for distribution over the coming winter.
The Blanket Box Project aims to provide homemade blankets to those who need them most.
So if you have any yarn left over from projects and you would like to help please knit or crochet squares which can then be joined to make blankets. It does not matter what gauge the yarn is, the only requirement is that they measure as near as possible to 20 cm by 20cm. Once you have made them you can drop them off at Stitchery do.
