Pauline Loven of the Group Orkney to Omaha has sent me the following report. This is a film project telling the story of a family during the First World War. If anyone can help in any way I know the group would appreciate it.
I have also come into contact with wonderful people who have shared their ideas and time with me as my project is progressing. Thank you all. Onwards!
"When WAG Screen decided to make a film to mark the Centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, we had no idea that we would meet with so much generosity and love. I can think of no better way to mark such a poignant anniversary. We now have a team of over 250 knitters offering their expertise, knowledge, knitting time and even dipping into their own stashes to help. We also have wool donated from Rowan Wool, Texere, Jamiesons of Shetland, Frangipani aka Guernseywool.co.uk and Blacker (thank you all). However, just as we had no idea that this wonderful knitting project would blossom from our original plan, we hadn't budgeted for it either and the postage alone is considerable! Please help us either directly or by posting the link to our Kickstarter campaign. Thank you xx"
