So…..we take our annual break for the Summer. Our Angels will no doubt be busy knitting and crocheting all summer long. Keep and eye on our site as we continue to update.
Welcome to Angel Hugs! We are non-profit charity group of volunteers founded in the fall of 1998. Angel Hugs is located in Mississauga Ontario, Canada. We meet once per month, usually the first Sunday of the Month.
