Knit, Crochet & Craft in Libraries

Dust off your knitting needles and crochet hooks and prepare to rummage in your yarn stash because the Inspire Charity Knitting Challenge will be setting off on another epic woolly adventure in 2022! 

Knitting and crafting for charity has become an enormous success in Inspire libraries. Every year we support a different charity and 'call out' to groups and individuals that want to take part. The annual theme is announced in the spring and the resulting work is collected, exhibited and celebrated before it is donated.

The 2022 challenge will be our sixth annual charity knitting event. Every year an army of you are prepared to give your time, skills, wool and lots of creativity to a charitable cause. In 2017 over 6000 knitted squares were donated to KasCare and Child Africa, in 2018 you created 1300 puppets for Operation Christmas Child, 550 Worry Monsters made their way to Knit for Nowt in 2019, in 2020 Knit for Peace received 806 woolly hats and in 2021 over 2000 tiny green Robin Hood hats were sent to The Innocent Big Knit! 

Thank you to everyone who has taken part over the last six years. We think you should all be crowned the kings and queens of 'Knittinghamshire' for sure! 

Join in and continue making a difference!

The announcement of our 2022 theme and details about how to join in will be coming to these pages very soon...
