This year’s Stitch London Christmas Shindig is sponsored by the good folks at Knit Magazine
Jingle! Jingle! Jingle!
Hark! What’s the noise? Why it’s the knitted reindeer pulling the Stitch London Christmas Shindig Sleigh filled with fantabulous crafty gifts for all! Woo hoo!
Every year Stitch London throws one hell of a woolly party for Christmas, and two things make it extra special:
Cracking Christmas Raffle and Stitching Secret Santa
The Cracking Christmas Raffle means we ask craft sellers to donate their most fabulous things to help raise money for a cause close to Stitch London’s handmade heart.
What can I win? We’ll be listing prizes on Twitter, Facebook and our Website. So keep checking as the list grows every day.
Where can I get tickets from? Tickets are only available on the night at the Stitch London Christmas Shindig. All you need to do is arrive at the party and buy your tickets.
How much are tickets? Tickets will be £1 each and all money raised from the Cracking Christmas Raffle will go to Yes to Life and the Andrea Giles Cancer Charity Appeal.
What’s this Secret Santa business about? Stitching Secret Santa is all about giving and more importantly about getting a bit of someone else handsome handmade handwork. Read all about it over at the Stitching Secret Santa post.
This year we’re raising money to support brand-new knitter Andrea Giles in her battle against breast cancer. Andrea’s fight is more than just a one-woman battle. She began using alternative and complementary therapy when the usual medical route fell short. Andrea is a brave pioneer for the Yes to Life Campaign, setting out to prove that there is hope even when the medical profession aren’t so sure.
Help Andrea kick cancer where it hurts
Andrea’s story is so inspiring we couldn’t fit it all in here, so you can read all about it in a special interview over at the Stitch London blog. It’s an amazing cause and Andrea is an amazing woman. Your raffle money could change the course of cancer treatment and give hope to so many. Please give what you can. And do read Angela’s interview. It really is very inspiring stuff.
Can’t make the party? If you miss it there’s the Global Stitching Secret Santa Swap on Ravelry too!
Want to donate something? For every item donated you’ll get a tweet to our 6000 followers and a link on our Facebook. Email info@stitchLDN.com to let us know you’d like to give a prize. Small sellers and large ones are all welcome.
