If you win this raffle, you will be able to choose the theme of your story blanket and we will make it for you according to your vision. The knitted Story Blanket in the photos was hand knitted by our Maple Village parents to raffle at our Harvest Faire last year. It’s theme was ‘The Four Seasons’ and as you can see it is divided into Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. It was amazingly stunning. Other ideas for a theme would be; WOODLAND, with forest greens, streams and toadstools or FARMYARD, with veggie patches, ploughed land and wheat fields or BEACH, with the sea and waves and sand and seaweed… your imagination is the limit.

Your blanket will be 3 x 4 feet big and will be a hand knitted collaboration by our Maple Village community. It will be completed by July 1st, 2013.

A Story Blanket is a collaborative work of art. The Maple Village community is well known for the beautiful story blankets they make each year. A Story Blanket can be used for telling stories to your children, it can be a gorgeous playscape for your children to play with or a treasured piece of art to be displayed on your wall or in some other special place in your home. The Maple Village Story Blankets are especially precious as the hands of so many in our community have come together to bring it to life.






Felted toys are made from natural materials in the Waldorf tradition. They have been needle felted from gorgeous wool and are soft, warm and textured.
