Main Group

knit4charities | knit4charities / Knit4Charities
This Australian Group is for enthusiastic knitters, crocheters, sewers, who would like donate their work to charities. Most of us donate locally to save on postage so we can buy more yarn! Our aim is to share with each other charities support and the types of items they use. Swap stories, patterns, ideas and work together to help those in need. All members of the community are welcome to join and to nominate charities for the group and/or individuals to support. No charity is too big or too small for us to help. In fact the smaller the charity the better because they are the ones who struggle and survive mainly on the goodness of others. For whatever you like to knit, crochet or sew I can find a needy body be it human or animal. *TOTAL DONATIONS GIVEN over 437,423 to date!! * SEPT donations post by OCT 11 - address on database *OCTOBER 2019 -- CHARITY OF THE MONTH PROJECTS ARE....* BACKYARD HABITAT WILDLIFE RESCUE (QLD) 20cm up to 40cm wide rectangular pouches (length approx 1.5 times the width e.g. 20cm wide x 30cm long) acrylic only, all pouches will be lined so outside is not important except that they need to wash well - similar size liners cotton only, no synthetics (flannelette OK but nothing tiny claws can get caught in) french seams preferred but overlocked seams will be accepted too, and hems please, no areas where fraying can occur and cause choking hazards - birds nests all sizes, acrylic CHILDRENS EMERGENCY DEPT.
