Knitters kneeded!

No automatic alt text available.

Can you help? Are you a knitter?


It was a to meet Margaret Walker (a very talented knitter) who called at the beginning of the year offering to knit for the charity. We sent Margaret some patterns and she has done a beautiful job. However, we are running short on Moses baskets and little gowns in particular and would really appreciate a helping hand from the local community. Our regular knitting team at SQA and Hazel Watson could do with some helpers to make sure we meet the needs of St Johns Hospital and RIE.

Please email info@sands-lothians.org.uk if you think you can help or share on any local knitting groups you know of or on your own FB page. You never know who might see it. The items give so much comfort to the families and mean the world to them to see their precious baby in such beautiful items knitted with love. Thank you


Below are pictures of the Moses baskets and above are the little gowns we need. These would be knitted using white wool.
