Born to knit campaign has 6 weeks to go!!

Have you been knitting for Born to Knit?

Our successful Born to Knit campaign has just 6 weeks to go, so it’s time to complete the knitting and send it in!

Thank you to our valuable volunteers from all over Australia who have been involved with Born to Knit.  We really appreciate all your support and the time spent knitting squares and blankets, and helping us to sew up the beautiful donated squares into blankets for needy children.

If you still have some squares or blankets for us, now is time to get your knitted work ready and send them in.

Knitted squares and blankets can be dropped off or posted directly to Born to Knit HQ in Collingwood:

We look forward to receiving your knitted donations soon!

Happy knitting!

  1. That’s a timely reminder, thanks. My mum’s blanket is 3/4 done so i’ll give her a hand. I’ve been knitting for Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.

    • Laura's mum

      Good to know we can drop off our knitting. Laura and I will have two blankets plus some extra squares.

      Is that in business hours? i.e. 9-5, Monday to Friday, or different hours?

      • Hi Laura’s Mum,

        That’s great that you and Laura are able will have two blankets and squares to donate to Born to Knit.

        You are able to drop off your blankets and squares directly at the Born to Knit HQ at 42 Dight Street, Collingwood VIC between the hours of 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday.

    Will you be having another knitting program? I work with teenagers who have been knitting for Africa, but that program has finished. They enjoy doing the knitting but we don’t know where to send the items to.

    • Hi Margot,

      Thank you for your comment.
