Knitathon - All you need to know!

Remember, we are knitting up big at the knitathon this year.  Come and register your support!  This event is great fun!

We run the Knitathon to raise funds for The Child Cancer Foundation.  Last year we raised $13,000 and we would like to improve on this. Let’s set our sights on $20,000!

How do we raise money through this event?
The participants of the knitathon/quiltathon get their friends and colleagues to sponsor the time they spend participating.
We auction off all items that are made.
We auction off all items donated by individuals and local businesses.

When is the event? It starts at 9.00am on Friday 23 August and runs for 48 hours non-stop until Sunday 25th August 9am.

What happens to the rugs and quilts we make? 
They will go up for auction beginning of October. This gives us time to finish any unfinished items. 
As and when they are finished, we will put the rugs on display prior to the auction.
