weaving hearts

We are from Greece. We have a smal center for helping people with many ways. Food,clothes,medicines,lessons,support,seminars everything for free. No money. Crisis is very big I greece and many people have not even the basic for living...Knitting is one project we started and we noticed How much this project helps people with depression and stress. We would like to have more women in the project but we can not. We don't have yarns and needles...women makes somethkng for themselves and something for skmebody else. Also we have the idea something totaly NEW. A weaving center! Weaving is not popular any more in greece. A year ago an old lady gave to me as a present an old floor loom. It was an incredible experience....My life has changed! So I believe that a weaving center will help many many people. We need many things for a weaving center as looms different kinds, a spinning wheel, yarns many yarns,sticks for the looms,books for weaving,patterns, etc. It someone wants to help us will be very very good! We need any support! please help our center WEAVING HEARTS to become real! Also we welcome any kind of knitted or weaved stuff for decoration of our center!
Thank you!
