Knitted Easter Chicks for Children Heard and Seen

I hope some of you will be able to help by knitting Easter Chicks for the children supported by Children Heard and Seen. Free knitting patterns are available online and the chicks are really simple to knit. It is extremely important to use specific toy stuffing for the head in spite of any other instructions in the pattern.

Each one only takes a couple of hours to complete, including sewing up and doing the eyes and beak. We need 200 chicks in all so please let me know how many you are making. I need to receive them by Monday 8th March, please.

The pattern can be found here…

…and you’ll see that each chick contains a cream egg. We’ll also print a label saying the chick is a gift from Mothers’ Union and is not a toy, then put the whole lot in a sealed plastic bag.

Here are a couple of chicks I’ve knitted for you to see. Please contact me on avp.eastberks@muoxford.org.uk and I’ll let you know my address to send the chicks. If anyone would like to contribute to the cost of the eggs then please send a cheque or a bank transfer to Eve or Geoff for the Projects Account.

Thanks for your help.
