What We Do
Knitting, crocheting and sewing for charities
Welcome to Loving Hands Website. Here you will find out all about us, local Groups, and how to get involved.
We have members from all over the UK who make items for various charities, from premature baby clothes to double bed size blankets, fiddle mats and muffs, toys etc. New members are always very welcome.
We are always on the look-out for more charities across the country for members to support locally. We also welcome donations of wool, fabric, stuffing in fact anything we can use.
The forum is an amazing place to visit too; so full of love and inspiration for all who read it. It is open for everyone to read, but you need to register and to be a Member to post. Many members start their day with a cuppa and a catch up on the latest chat on the forum.
Quote from a member "Through belonging to this amazing collective of loving, talented people many have found a reason to get up in the morning, a distraction from pain/long-term illness/family problems, something to smile about and look forward to."
Dozens of new friendships have been formed and projects have benefitted from the awesome power that is Loving Hands.
We hope you will enjoy reading through our website and look forward to welcoming you as a member of our wonderful community!
Our Makes for the UK and Overseas
Whatever you enjoy making there are so many places that would love it!
We have many charities that we support - all have been checked to make sure they take all the donations we give them directly to the people or animals in need. We do not supply items to be sold.
A full list of charities, including how and where to donate, can be found on our Forum.
If you are a charity or organisation who would like us to help with items you need, please contact us with details of what you require and addresses in the UK to ship them to.
We do not expect our members to have to send items overseas themselves, nor do we ask that our members contribute financially to forward shipment of items from the UK to their final destinations - it is felt that in making the items and getting them to a a UK destination, our members are definitely doing their part to help
