Calling all Knitters and Crocheters

Posted on 7th January, 2020



The following request is from Little Dandelion Australia via Amy in Brent Knoll: 

"Knitters of the World - Australia needs your help. Over 1 million hectares of land have been burning in 300 fires across NSW and Queensland … There has been a call out for knitted, crocheted Joey pouches and sewn pouch liners for our beloved kangaroos, and other natives such as possums and wombats, to help in the treatment of burns."

The items most needed, and associated patterns and sizes required, can be found on various sites including Animal Rescue Collective Craft and Little Dandelion Australia.


If you would like to contribute 8-ply natural wool or knitted/crotched items then Corinne is kindly offering to collect the items from you and take them to the lady in Brent Knoll, who's sister will take them to Australia on 5th February.


Please note you can send items to Australia yourself but if you would like to use the local method of someone taking your items to Australia personally then you will need to:


contact Corinne on 07979 532 960 before 3rd February deadline.

[UPDATE 09 JAN 2020]

E.g. "The first flyer flew out today [9 Jan] with first batch of items made" and "There are collection points around the country and these are growing all the time ... British airways are discussing about moving crates carrying 500kg of items. Tom Ball of the Times has done a report on this all and it should be out tomorrow [9 Jan]. You can look on fb.uk crafters Australian Animal Rescue Effort and find out lots of information from here inc patterns, collection points ,carriers etc."
