Amanda Andrews Hi I’m Amanda and I run “Knit & Promise Crafts” – I hand knit every item myself and particularly specialise in one-off pieces uniquely created for my customers. I particularly love creating tea-cosies and have had the privilege of selling via Etsy to a huge variety of countries, inclusive of Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and of course the UK.
As soon as I saw the Breast Cancer Haven Charity Fundraiser “The Big Tea Cosy” I just had to get involved. I may not be able to host a tea-party but I will be taking part, wholeheartedly. So for every tea cosy that I sell in March 50% of the item price will be donated to this cause. I will also aim to host a crafternoon to encourage others to join in and also creating other offers and discounts so keep your eyes peeled.
Knitting is my safe haven, it provides me with peace and a sense of purpose and it has always been my aim to make a difference to others through my knitting and that is happening, recently a customer sent me a message that the egg cosies I had made them brought joy to their family…what more can you ask for.
I’m so excited to be part of this event and hope to raise lots of money and awareness. Amanda Andrews
