Making the Freebie Bags
The making-up of 1000 freebie bags for Stitch 'N Pitch was a big undertaking! On a warm Sunday morning volunteers gathered for 3 and 1/2 hours to try and make sense of 20 big cardboard boxes of bags, yarn, patterns and wool soap.
Thanks to Liane, Wendy, Shelna , Lynne, Rosie, Paul , Naomi and Sophie for helping!

Wendy, the mistress of the yarn. Yarn in it's natural habitat (the plastic bag), eagerly anticipates it's new home. The piles you see aren't even 10% of the total number of bags.
Rosie packs away the finished bags, ready to be handed out at the game.
