Orange Purlers Thank You Morning Tea
Knitters enjoyed a thank you morning tea at Orange City Library for all their efforts in another record breaking year creating rugs for Wrap With Love to go to people in need. Groups included the Orange Purlers who meet each Thursday morning in the Library, the Canowindra Knitting Group and Gosling Creek Aged Care Knitters. Librarian Trudi Mayfield said the group started in 2011 creating 121 rugs with the tally rising each year to this year’s incredible total of 497 rugs!!! The rugs went world-wide to Syria, Mosul, Fiji and the Philippines and 40 rugs were distributed locally through Housing Plus. The group also gave a round of applause to Trudi for her organisation skills. Special mention was also made of the youngest member Bailey who is learning to knit. Congratulations to all involved in donating, knitting, sewing and delivering rugs.
