Welcome to the WARM Newsletter No.2

Dear WARM Knitters, Partners, Sponsors and Friends,

Well we are only a few weeks away from putting the pieces together, and we're very excited.  It has been wonderful to receive everyone's contributions so far - as diverse, varied and colourful as a landscape!

In this newsletter you'll find information about our events, workshops and of course our launch on 3rd September - we really hope to see you there.

You might like to follow us on Facebook and see pictures of contributions as they come in - just click here to find the SEAM projects page!

Also, keep your eyes out for the WARM article in the next YARN Magazine Issue #43.

Enjoy your last few weeks of knitting for WARM - there still plenty of time to make a few flowers, a pair of mitts and some mini wind turbines!

All the best from the WARM team (Verity, Georgie, Tracy, Lisa, Mel and Lars)

Wonderful WARM workshops

Over the past few months our WARM team has been very busy holding displays and running workshops for adults and children all around the State.  We have been to the:
  • Ararat Art Gallery
  • Art Gallery of Ballarat
  • Beanie Affair in Castlemaine
  • Daylesford Neighbourhood Centre
  • Creative Gippsland in Sale
  • CWA Craft Exhibition in Ballan
  • Handknitter's Guild Annual Craft Market in Coburg
  • Woolcraft in Bendigo
  • World Knit in Public Day and workshopsl at the National Wool Museum in Geelong
  • Woolly West Fest in Dunkeld
  • Phew!
As well as learning some new knitting tricks at the workshops, LOTS of knitters have knitted LOTS of pieces for the project, as well as some lovely work to take home. 

A big thank you to Georgie (Tikki knits) and Verity for making all of this happen.  And thank you to our workshop hosts, sponsors and of course the participants for your enthusiastic knitting!
The White Gum Wool Story...
Project supporter White Gum Wool uses some fascinating methods of sustainable farming that are good for the planet and good for the sheep who make the beautiful wool.  Learn more about the WGW story here.

What are you knitting for WARM?


Thanks so much to everyone who's been letting us know what you're making.  There is so much WARM knitting happening across Victoria (and a few international contributions too!) - so exciting!

If you'd still like to let us know
what you're knitting for WARM, please email Verity and let her know - verity@seam.org.au.

This will help us work out how many pieces are being made, and then we can let you know if we need extras of any pieces.
