A Fine Day

19 June 2011

No train trackworks and it was a fine, sunny day.  So more than 120 turned out for WWKIP Sydney at Customs House.  Some were even able to sit outside on the balcony and enjoy the winter sunshine.  Knitters came from far and wide across the State and we even had 3 visitors who’d made the trip across the Tasman (from Auckland).

All this was made possible by a terrific list of supporters this year from the giants (Australian Country Spinners) to the small hand-dyers.  Having the support of ACS and Better Homes and Gardens meant we were able to hold the event at Customs House.  ACS also donated yarn and Better Homes and Gardens made sure we had loads of magazines to give away.

The roll-call of supporters this year is long and varied (and listed in no particular order).  Thank you so much to all of you for your valued support and the great prizes you donated (I even won one!).

And another big thank you to the volunteers who worked so hard to make it run smoothly.

And, of course, to Margot – without whom the whole event would not have been possible.

  1. Congratulations, Sally to you, Margot and all your volunteers on a great afternoon. The group from Epping Library all enjoyed the day and many went home as the proud recipients of prizes.

    Thank you also for putting the Library Group on your list of knitting groups around Sydney.

    We’re looking forward to next year!

  2. Glad to hear it went well – it was a lovely day for it.
