Thank you to the Knitters of the Sutherland Shire!

You have donated, 56 completed rugs and 660 squares, (enough to make another 23 rugs) for the Wrap with Love project via your Library service and many, many more through the Stapleton Avenue Community Centre.

The variety, colour and creativeness of the squares & rugs brought pleasure to all who saw them displayed. One can only imagine the comfort, delight and sense of being valued that receiving any one of these rugs would provide a recipient.

They are all being collected now and sent into the Sydney Warehouse for distribution through over forty non-denominational and non-political aid agencies world wide. Last year 27372 rugs were given out, throughout 34 countries.

Knitters got together at both Caringbah and Sutherland Libraries where they felt part of the wider Sydney event, with live streaming of 2BL coverage, of the "Knit in", as well as webcam vision of the ‘skeins’ (?) of knitters crammed into the foyer of the the ABC studio in Ultimo.

Now Sutherland Libraries are in on the Wrap with Love Knit in experience, we are hoping for bigger crowds each year, so keep us in mind as a knitting venue for 2010.

Thank you for your generosity!
