News: Weavers turn bunting into blankets for homeless people’s charity Crisis
The Weavers’ Workshop have been busy creating blankets made from knitted bunting.
The knitted triangles were originally made for a world-record attempt for the longest line of knitted bunting. The event was organised by National Trust property Upton House and yes, they broke the world record with an astonishing 7.55km of bunting!
Making the blankets was a way of using the triangles for something useful. The charity Crisis Skylight Coventry & Warwickshire are coordinating this part of the project to take the blankets to the homeless. So far the Weavers have transformed 200 triangles into two blankets. With many more people involved in the project by the 19th December it is hoped that 30000 triangles will have been stitched into blankets for the Christmas handout.
