Christmas at Yarn Alive

Laughter, silly games, an abundance of good food, lots of presents and smiles (and a few joyful tears) – tis certainly the season!

With the help of some amazing supporters, Yarn Alive was able to throw Christmas parties for both the Tuesday and Wednesday classes. Thank you so much for the kind donations of scarves and hats (Scarves 4 Japan), 2012 calendars (Noel Yang), gifts from South Africa (Annalie de-Wet) and money contribution (Dellming)! The temporary housing shelters certainly felt festive and joyful!

Yarn Alive has been an amazing initiative that has been running for the past 6 months. These ladies today kept grabbing Teddy Sawka’s hand and saying how thankful they were to Yarn Alive and that they are excited each week to gather for class.

One lady shared with Teddy that she has “no hope and no future but yarn gives [her] something to do and it’s so much fun”.

From Japan Alive, we want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and hope that 2012 brings greater joy, laughter and LIFE!
