Big Knit Blanket News!

We've decided to raffle last year's (2012) wonderful Big Knit Blanket (a huge beautiful blanket made up of squares knitted by festival-goers and supporters from all over the world) so that everyone can have a chance to own it. To get the raffle off the ground Rebecca from our team has set up a page on Just Giving so that we can sell tickets before as well as during the festival. The raffle will be drawn at the Farewell Bash on November 3rd. Our Big Knit charity this byear is Guide Dogs, Scotland. Read all about it!

Big Knit Team members Linda and Anna with the blanket theat will be the raffle prize!

Just in case it's not clear enough...if you donate online via the JustGiving site (link above photo) you receive one raffle ticket for every £1 donated. These tickets will be handwritten with your email address on the back and be included in the Raffle Draw on Sunday 3rd November at the Farewell Bash. The blanket will be shipped at our expense to the winner (maybe you!) anywhere in the world!
