Community Projects at Jacob’s Brew

The CRAFT&COFFEE FOR CHARITY group of talented women crafted crocheted items from wool donated by our patrons to give away to charity and needy causes.
Craft&Coffee for Charity started off with a group of 5 ladies one October Monday morning in 2018. The idea was to make 6 lap blankets to donate to the elderly in an old people’s home. The group grew to over 25 ladies from all walks of life and all ages, with others coming and going as they pleased. They would meet up with the same goal at Jacob’s Brew Cafe’, to enjoy their craft, make new friends, sip coffee/tea and sometimes cake or biscuits and stitch up beautiful things to donate. Thus bringing smiles and warmth to those receiving.

How apt is that. Meeting up at a place where pay it forward is the order of the day. The love of crochet comes from donated yarn, so we and you who have donated the yarn are all Paying It Forward in a big way. We have warmed many hearts of the elderly in various homes, the homeless, children in poorer countries, the residents in mental homes, Hospice Malta and Oncology patients, Survivors Malta and many more.

Since the pandemic the dynamics of the group has changed. Now we are still collecting donated yarn and crafting materials so as to distribute to the active ageing day centers all over the Maltese islands, giving the elderly a purpose through their craft.

Yarn is constantly being used and stitched up, so wool donations are always welcome and these can be dropped of at Jacob’s Brew – Pay It Forward….many thanks and much love.

Our BOOK CLUB encourages our patrons to borrow, swap and donate books at the shop.

Donations are always welcome to help our cause❤️
