Cwtch of Comfort

 

We are looking for people to knit or crochet blankets or make patchwork quilts for our bereavement boxes and to comfort bereaved parents and family members.

 

Suggested Blanket and Quilt sizes:

Baby: 30” x 30” / 75cm x 75cm

Toddler: 30” x 45” / 75cm x 100cm

Child: 45” x 60” / 1m x 1.25m

Teen / Young Adult: 60” x 72” / 1.25m x 1.75m

Your blanket or quilt does not need to fall exactly on these sizes: they are merely a guide to help you.

 

Blankets – Knitted or Crochet

All blankets should be made with white yarn or pale pastel (yarn with a sparkle is fine) which is machine washable (and preferably tumble-dryable). Yarn weight and fibre type are unimportant.

 Quilts

Quilts should be made from gentle pastel, white or white on white fabric only and should be quilted. Quilt tops may be pieced or plain, and backings can be flannelette sheeting, fleece fabric, muslin or patchwork fabric. You do not need to include wadding in the quilts, but if you do, it should be thin (sheeting or fine wadding).

Please make sure that all materials used are machine washable.

 

Cwtch of comfort has its own blog giving details of patterns that you can use and sharing stories of the crafters who are involved in the blankets project. Visit us at cwtchofcomfort.wordpress.com

 

Collection of blankets and quilts

Once you have finished your blanket or quilt, please contact us at cwtchofcomfort@gmail.com and we will give you details of where you can drop your blankets and quilts off.

 

But I can’t knit / crochet / make patchwork quilts! How can I help?

We are hoping to run Stitches for Wishes workshops where we will teach people to knit, crochet or make patchwork quilts. Watch this space for more information about how you can help.

 

Many thanks  / Diolch o Galon.
