Square Circle Forum

Well, it is that time of year again........ Allowing for postal times and sorting for distribution, it is time to think about making teddies for the children in South Africa via Knit A Square ready for Christmas.

What to bring: 
* A pair of 3.25mm (for a teddy toy) or 4mm (for a teddy glove puppet) knitting needles, I will provide yarns, stuffing and patterns. 
* an item for a shared lunch. I will provide tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits for other breaks.
* A small donation towards the cost of postage.

Where is it:

10 Cotswold Close, Melton Mowbray Leicestershire LE13 0JT

This will be at my home, but there is the garden we can use as well as the sitting room and dining room so we should be able to fit a fair number of people here. We have dogs (who will be at Doggy Daycare for the day) and cats, so please be aware if you have an allergy.


Arrive any time from 10am.  I will need to go get the dogs as soon as possible after 4pm.  Stay as long or as short a time as your own schedule for the day allows.

Here is a gallery shot of some more teddies and puppets and also a snowman from friends who either were unable to attend Teddy Day or who finished them at home.  I now have a whole kitchen bin bag full of toys so next week when I get the rest in I shall be having a set to with some vacuum bags so I can get them all off to the post!

Again, there are larger photos that may be easier to see in my photo album.

I have just returned form the Post Office and 42 teddies, teddy puppets, and other dolls have just been posted to South Africa.  Safe travels, little ones, take lots of love from us all to the kiddies!

Happy travels, little teddies.

Wonderful!  Well done Rebecca and friends - they will all be so appreciated.

The final haul of toys made

A wonderful collection of toys...thank you Rebecca and friends, your toy making day was a great success.  :))
