Cwtch of Comfort was founded in March 2014 as the blankets project for the charity 2 Wish Upon A Star. We make and collect blankets and quilts which form an important part of the bereavement boxes which are given to suddenly bereaved parents in A&E and ICU across Wales.
The most important information about the blankets and quilts you make for 2 Wish Upon a Star:
- We ask that all the blankets and quilts are made of white or gentle, gender-neutral pastels.
- Please make sure that all of the materials you use are machine washable. Here’s why.
- There is no set pattern for you to use, but I have added some of my favourites to the knitting patterns page, the crochet patterns page and the quilt patterns page. If you have others that you love, please let me know and I’ll add them to the relevant page.
Sometimes we receive brightly coloured blankets, and these blankets can be just too bright to be used as bereavement blankets in the boxes provided by 2 wish Upon a Star. I’m really pleased to announce that these blankets will be going to children and families supported by Ty Hafan, the Children’s Hospice.
