An appeal:

Thank you for all the wonderful snowflakes which have started coming in, and to everyone who's working hard making more.

What we desperatly need help with now is putting up posters and fliers.  I'd planned to take a poster to as many shops in Malvern as possible, but then I broke my ankle and have to keep it elevated meaning I'm in a bit of a difficult situation!  If anyone could pick up some poster and fliers from Iapetus Gallery, Belle Vue Terrace, Great Malvern it would be greatly appreciated!   Thank you!

And thank you to the person who has picked some up, you're a star :)

Thank you!

Thank you for all the get well soon messages, and all the new enquiries from people interested in getting involved.  Sorry if I haven't got back to you, I think I missed a few while I was in hospital.  Please contact me again if you haven't had a reply, thank you :)

Slight delay with instructions, sorry!

Unfortunately I fell down the stairs this morning and it looks like I've broken my ankle (the perils of having a black kitten!).  This means the instructions will be a bit late getting to Iapetus Gallery today as I'm stuck in a&e sorry!

Yarn & printed instructions

From Monday thanks to a very kind donor, you can pick up a ball of white yarn and a sheet of printed instructions for a knitted and a crocheted snowflake from Iapetus Gallery, Belle Vue Terrace, Great Malvern. 

Completed snowflakes can also be dropped off at Iapetus Gallery or can be brought along on the 29th November at 10.30am for the big installation if you'd like to help put them up.

The snowflakes can be made to any pattern, in any size and yarn, all we ask is that they're white.  I'm making mine with DK weight wool with a 4mm crochet hook if that helps anyone.  Several of the knitting patterns I've put links to in the previous post are actually for stars, but knitted in white they'll make lovely snowflakes.

Thank you to Margaret for suggesting that children or people who can't knit or crochet could make snowballs by making pompoms  with white wool.  These will also be very welcome and look great alongside the snowflakes.

If you could leave the end of the yarn on the snowflake/snowball approx 30-40cms (12-15") that would make it easier for us to put them up.  Don't worry if you've already woven in the ends though, we can attach a thread for them to hang from.
