Our Worldwide Creative Project

One of the most exciting parts of Yarndale is the creative challenges we set and the enthusiastic response from everyone who joins in, and we certainly weren’t disappointed when we set the challenge for 2020.

We asked you to make colourful dishcloths to help raise money for Martin House Hospice Care, our chosen charity for 2020, and we’re overjoyed that you have sent us a grand total of 1,386!

Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, the hospice had been forced to cancel its fundraising events and has seen its income plummet as the country went into lockdown.

By making your dishcloths, we can help raise money for this fantastic cause and make a real difference to families supported by the charity.

All the dishcloths we’ve received from you will be sold at Yarndale 2021. So, there’s still a lot more time to keep making them!

Please keep sending in your Dishcloths.
