Crafternoon

Crafternoon is as simple as crafting and fundraising for Mind.

Organise a date, time and place and invite a few friends, family or colleagues to come along, donate and spend time together getting crafty.

Make something, raise money for Mind, and swap craft tips over a slice of cake and a cuppa. Have fun and help us make sure that no one has to face a mental health problem alone. 

Sign up and get access to a whole load of resources including a planning guide, craft ideas and a network of like-minded crafters via our private Facebook community.

The idea of getting everyone together to have a go at different crafts seemed like a really nice way for us to raise money for Mind, as well as talking about why crafting is so important to us.

Introducing "On a positive note"

We've collaborated with the Craftivist Collective to create "on a positive note".  

It's a crafty kit with a unique fabric envelope for you to stitch, and a notecard for you to write a message to your MP, asking them to raise the bar for everyone with mental health problems.  Plus all profits will help us to continue to be there for everyone who needs us. 

Kits cost £12.50 (including postage and VAT). They include,  step-by-step instructions, pre-printed fabric envelope, oringal Mind stamp, 2 buttons, needle and thread, note card and message suggestion, 2 free gifts for you. 

You can follow our "How to why to" video when making your kit and we've also created some tips to help you contact your MP too.  And if you need a little bit more of a helping hand, have a look at our FAQs for guidance

Don't forget to keep us updated with your progress by tweeting us @MindCharity using #crafternoon.
