Manningham Uniting Church will celebrate ‘World Knitting Day’ on Saturday 4th June at their new facility in Templestowe. The event will take place at the Church & Community Centre, 109 Wood Street, Templestowe, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Knitters are encouraged to BYO lunch with tea/coffee provided or purchase at the new on-site Redgum café.
Our Knitters group at Manningham Uniting has continued through lockdowns to create garments and blankets for refugees and asylum seeker communities, distributing them through organisations such as EACH Ringwood, ASRC, Refugee Voices and the Uniting Blanket Appeal, to provide warmth and comfort to these new Australians. We have also provided blankets for aboriginal palliative care patients through the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry.
The annual World Knitting Day event is a great opportunity for those who love knitting and those who would like to learn to come together. Wool, needles and patterns will be available for all to use. Further donations of wool would be appreciated. This is a free event.
Hand-knitted garment & blankets will be on sale and proceeds to the EACH Refugee Health Clinic, Ringwood.
