Summer News!

As we enter the summer period our thoughts turn to Winter! A number of activities now need the support of our Glbal Giving Community.

Firstly our fund raising has been able to provide workshop and therapy sessions and to several wool groups close to oiur Foundation headquarters. These are scheduled to continue in the summer period but after the summer we need to find money for these to continue!

Secondly wool supplies continue to arrive for us to send on to groups in Poland and into Ukraine. However this again costs money in post and courier costs. We currently support 5 groups in Ukraine with materials. These groups of wonderfully talented ladies do a range of activities, including felting knitting and weaving. A number of them are focused on providing warm winter clothing for the approaching cold weather. Yes, I know it sounds strange talking of Winter, in Summer, but we need to prepare and make!

In Zywiec more than 20 Ukrainian ladies are now also in proper skills training workshops that will enable them to develop a career in wool crafting this programme also needs your support. We hope to showcase their work in a textile fair again in Germany this September, where we are also pledged wool supplies from German crafters, but we go if we can raise the travel costs involved.

In short, the good work goes on not only in Poland, the USA ( Port Townsend and the Bay Area particularly)  but  also in Germany, Switzerland, Slovakia and Iceland and of course our bravest of brave in Ukraine itself.
