The #crochet jungle project

The #crochetjungle is an exciting collaborative textile installation being created to inspire imaginations, teach adults and children how to crochet and to raise money and awareness for both Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity and Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice. The #crochetjungle will be on display at The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at the beginning of March before going on tour later in the year.
Everyone is invited to take part in Kerry Lord’s fundraising project, by helping to build the #crochetjungle at the TOFT Alpaca Studio prior to the show on Sundays throughout February. Sessions are FREE of charge  and all materials and basic tuition is provided for the whole family. Throughout The Knitting and Stitching Show we’ll keep building the #crochetjungle and encourage you all to take part.
Kerry Lord is the designer and author of the Edward's Menagerie crochet series. Founder of the TOFT knitwear brand, she was inspired to learn to crochet during her first pregnancy. Her #crochetjungle project intends to ignite the imagination of all who experience it and encourage all the children who have picked up their grandma’s hooks to ‘loom band’ to take their hobby further.

I was contacted by Caroline asking if I could pass on information about Kerry's project, which I am more than happy to do so!

Rugby is a bit far for me but if you are in the area and fancy getting involved, Caroline's contact details are listed above.

It's all for a good cause and I wish the project all the best!!

'till next time...
