Craft for Cats this spring! Join us and watch our craftalong video to learn how to stitch your own embroidery art.
Try your hand at needlework and create a mini cat needle painting while making a difference to cats and kittens in need.
Suitable for beginners as well as more experienced makers, you'll get a materials kit with everything you need to create your own moggy masterpiece.
Led by Sammy from Paraffle Embroidery, you will be provided with a link to watch the craftalong recording (which took place live on 2 April) via Facebook or YouTube.
Each kit includes thread for almost every cat colour, and you can also choose from a sunny yellow or a rich teal background fabric to complement your feline’s fur!
Sign up for yourself or gift a place to a special cat lover in your life and a kit will be delivered directly to their door.
The cost to take part includes the craft materials kit, access to the craftalong, as well as £10 to support our work to care for abandoned, unwanted and neglected cats and kittens.
It could cover vital veterinary costs such as a flea and worm treatment, or microchip two cats before they find loving new homes.
About the craft
This mini cat needle painting kit designed by Paraffle specially for Cats Protection is the perfect way to learn the basics of embroidery - and to recreate your own cat with needle and thread!
You’ll get a 3-inch embroidery hoop, DMC embroidery thread, a needle, a pre-printed cat pattern, an instruction booklet (with lots of step-by-step photos), and organic, ethically sourced fabric.
About your tutor
Sammy founded Paraffle in 2016 while she was studying for a PhD in Edinburgh. Looking for a creative outlet, Sammy taught herself how to embroider in her spare time and was inspired by the natural world, flowing patterns, and bright colour combinations.
As Paraffle grew, Sammy decided to use the business as a force for good by becoming involved with charities like Cats Protection.
