October update

Hey, all! Time for a quick October update!

The Huron County Crafters for Caregivers Project

FINISH LINE AHEAD

The Huron County Crafters for Caregivers Project has almost reached the finish line! We are now down to 56 items needed to finish and hit our target of 924 hand-made gifts for the 924 long-term care workers employed in our local facilities.

It took a lot of teamwork to get this done and so many kind-hearted crafting makers to volunteer their time and talent to create all the gifts that have been distributed to local homes and hospices. This process has been an inspiring one. So many wonderful individuals coming forward to help and support the project is true evidence of the close-knit community in Huron County. Thank you to everyone who has taken part, helped to share the news, made gifts and donated yarn and monies to push the project forward! Without all of you, this wouldn’t have been possible.

Wheeler Mitts Knitting Kit

The Wheeler Mitts Knitting Kit was pulled from the shelves early 2022. I pushed the design process due to my dad’s illness and my mom’s care needs but in the end, I wasn’t happy with the product. It came from a place of sadness and grief as I tried to get things done in order to help Dad. But the design wasn’t truly what I wanted.

I’m happy to say that I’ve reworked the mitten design to a stage where I’m happy with my work and can share it. I’ll post some new photos of the mittens and kits soon. You will see the mitten kits available for purchase in the near future! Thank you for your patience and support.

Thanks, everyone for reading!
