Michael "T" Higgins knitted tea cosy

Michael "T" Higgins knitted tea cosy

This little guy was designed and made by Veronica Costello who very kindly lent it to us for the duration of our Tea Cosy Competition.  Veronica gave one to the President and apparently he loves it!

You could visit him and, at the same time, come and view the over 60 tea / caffetiere / mug cosies which were entered.  They were knitted, crocheted, felted, sewn and the imagination and craftsmanship exhibited is astounding!  We would love it if you would vote for your favourite – we have voting cards here in the shop.  All the proceeds of the competition go to St Brigid’s NS.
