One of the Ladies in our 'SIBOL' Group 'Judith Hunter' is fund-raising for her neighbour's little boy. He suffers with Cerebral Palsy and has now been given the opportunity to have an operation which could allow him to walk unaided and reach his full potential in life.
Unfortunately he will not receive funding due to the limited funds in the NHS and friends and family are fund-raising for him.
Judith is asking whether any Ladies either in the UK or Worldwide would like to make and donate
A Crocheted 'Star Blanket' in any size and colour.
Her aim is to re-sell the Blanket at Byfleet Village 150th Parish Day mid-July.
All proceeds from the Blankets received will go towards the Operation costs and everyone who donates a Blanket will be entered into a prize draw to win a bag of wool 'Care of the Wool Stop' /Judith.

SIBOL Squares From Australia By Annette Young.
I hope these Squares, Find their way to you, They're made with love And Friendship true. And though the miles And seas divide, Our crafting love Is just as wide. So make some Squares, For Mrs Twins, To spread some warmth And give some grins. When we give Squares, That we're proud of, We show we care With warmth and love. So, when crafters unite, Hooks and threads they twirl, For those in need, You mean the world. Annette Young. June 1, 2010.
The Lost Stash by Sally 'Chunky Hooker'.
Whilst rummaging in the scrap cupboard, I heard a plaintive cry " She never looks in our little bag, Can you tell me why? " A voice replied, "We're old and tatty, A little bit worn out, Our colours dull, our fibres matted, Now don't give me that pout!" "But I want to be a 'Sibolette', I really, really do! To be part of a Sibol, Made by the lovely Sue. It's my destiny, my dream, my fate!" The voice was getting higher, "I may be old but it's never too late, I'm not ready to retire". "Oh gosh", I thought, That sounds like me, Slightly worn, with a dodgy knee. So I'm off to college, A Diploma to gain And the voices of the Lost Stash? "Sibolettes" they became!
