In 2019 we called out for local crafters to help Manitoba children’s grief programming by knitting and crocheting 200 ‘Warm Memory Scarves’ by the end of May. We received a whopping 1,200! 4 years later, after supplying scarves to programs across the country as well as right here at home, we’re finally out of stock! Once again we’re in need of around 300 scarves this spring to hand out to children participating in various grief support programming and we’re turning to you, our generous crafting community for help!
