A Christmas Card for Crafters

I received a beautiful Christmas card today. The picture is of a woodcut by the artist Eric Gill. It is called ‘Madonna and Child with Angel’:

The card was sold in aid of a charity called Knit for Peace. Their website is here: http://knitforpeace.org.uk/ They use crafts, especially knitting and crochet, to bring people from disparate communities together, to empower them and to provide help and income for refugees and displaced people.
