Over the 22 years we have been operating we have raised and given substantial amounts to LifeStraws, Leukaemia, Breast Cancer Tasmania, local schools, homeless and women's refuges. We have, on behalf of local businesses and the community, assembled and distributed many hundreds of blankets, knitted caps for Soldiers in Afghanistan, poppies etc., and we thank all those customers who have played a big part in this achievement.
This November we have nominated PANCARE to be our "charity". This is very close to "home" as "the silent Partner" was first diagnosed with this three years ago and aside from the wonderful oncology and gastrology people at the RHH the people at PANCARE in Victoria have been so very supportive.
Please come along and help raise funds that will provide support for patients and their carers through the PANCARE programmes.
In store - we have just taken delivery of the newest range of Opal Sock Wool, more of the Erika Knight Linen and a number of other cottons all ready for summer holiday knitting.
We currently have a new range of knitting bags. Small and expandable, medium and the super-sized hamper- perfect for a blanket project. Priced between $30 and $40 they are a perfect for a gift or treat. 
This cute little dress is knitted in Naturally's 12ply Crazy Days. Pretty and quick to knit. There are 8 great colourways to choose from.
For the grey-nomads, downsizers, unit-dwellers, and those wanting to prolong their spinning time and anybody else, we have the newest, sweetest little electric spinning wheel from Ashford. We have given it a trial run with members of the HWD Guild of Tasmania this week at Royal Hobart Show with very promising feedback. Very reasonably priced and more than competitive against similar sized wheels. Nothing not to love! Check it out on www.woolsuppliers.com.au.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 16th of November - a good evening to aid a good cause.
