Come and have a yarn during Wool Week

St Ives Shopping Village invites customers to join in a knitathon from 7 May 2018 to 3 June where scarfs will be knitted for the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter as part of Wool Week. The knitting stations will be situated at concierge on level 2, and between Diamond Studios and Rodd and Gun on level 1 for everyone to take part.

“We welcome young and old, beginner to advanced knitters to join us so we can provide as many scarfs to the Women’s Shelter as possible. We are hoping passers-by will come and start knitting, and when they have to leave someone else will take over their scarf,” says Amy Edwards, Centre Manager at St Ives Shopping Village.

The knitting stations will have wool and knitting needles for shoppers to pick up and start knitting.

“Only basic knitting will be used for the scarfs, and instructions will be available for beginners to learn and join in.”

St Ives Shopping Village will donate the scarfs to the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter that provides temporary housing and support services for women impacted by domestic violence, homelessness and mental illness.

Wool Week is in its eighth year and celebrates the traditional skill with one of Australia’s most versatile resources.

The Shopping Village welcomes wool that can be used for the knitathon, and donations can be left at concierge on level 2. For those interested in honing their knitting skills further, St Ives Shopping Village will be holding a knitting workshop for all skill levels on 24 May until 3 June.
