THE KILOMETRE long scarf knitted for the Craft Fair in 2011 is about to be re-purposed.

Arts Deloraine proposes to make a series of woollen bed rugs to donate to those in need of warmth as a gesture of support. It may be possible to send some to the villages in Nepal hard hit by the earth quake. They are also looking to present rugs to refugee arrivals in Tasmania as a welcome gift and to the Winter Relief appeal here in Tasmania. A label telling the story and acknowledgment of community input will be sewn onto each rug.

A working session to make kits for people to take home and sew into bed rugs will be held on Saturday 7th November at Elemental Art Space 11.00am to 3.00pm.

Please call 0458818178 or leave your name at Elemental Artspace to volunteer.
