This cute project is a coaster for hot items.
 Filled with rice and cloves, so it smells great

Retro patterns

The problem with retro patterns is that they are hard to find in good condition or cost a mint. 

Thankfully the pattern companies are reissuing some of the oldies. 

I picked up these two the other day.  I was in a 40's mood!

Knitters and Sewers needed

Helping the Australian Somali Women's Healthcare Community Foundation
Knitters and Sewers needed.

From 2012 the Multicultural Women's Sewing Group is happy to be supporting a Somali women's beginner sewing class.

They meet Monday, Thursday and Saturday at the Elderly Citizens Club in Melrose St North Melbourne, from about 5 pm to 8 pm, and need volunteer teachers in sewing and knitting. Basic skills are enough, and they are keen learners. Our teacher will also be there once or twice a week.

Please speak to Laura or Jennifer about this, or contact Hawa Del, their community worker, directly.
