Memory Blankets

This is what she had to say about her memory blanket:

“I love it so much and can pick out squares from jumpers I can remember her wearing and it will always remind me of my mother and happy memories “

Another lady told me her husband had died, and she would like me to make something with his jumpers. It was an absolute privilege to be able to make a throw for the lady, with some fabulous jumpers.  Her husband must have had great taste judging from his sweaters. She was delighted with her throw, and said;

‘I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous throw you made for me. It is beautiful and I will treasure it forever. You have turned a very sad memory into something happy. Your creative skills are amazing and I consider myself very fortunate to have met you’

So, if you have recently lost a loved one, I can maybe help keep their memory alive, and provide something warm and huggable made from their jumpers, such as a throw or a cushion.

If you think I can help keep a memory alive, do get in touch

Do you have a pile of precious baby clothes you don’t want to part with? Can I help by making a memory blanket from them? Has somebody you love recently passed away? Maybe I can offer some comfort by making a memory blanket or cushion from their jumpers?

Whilst showing my woolly creations at The Shipley Art Gallery, in Gateshead, two different ladies, coincidentally approached me to talk about their recent bereavements, and requesting if I could do anything with their loved ones’ jumpers.

One lady had lost her mother, and had a large amount of cashmere, some of it going back to the 1960s, and much of it bought in Harrods.

Trouble is, the moths had got in, and much of it, although the most beautifully soft, fine cashmere, was riddled with holes. She asked if I could do anything with it, as her mother hated throwing anything away. By cutting around the holes, I managed to salvage enough cashmere rectangles to make the quilt you see in this photo.
