Event description

Description

Winter is approaching, and people experiencing hair loss through medical treatment will soon be needing cosy winter hats. Not every occasion calls for a beanie, and we have some new berets and cosy cap styles we'd like to get out in time for the cold weather.

As part of the development of a new social enterprise to support cancer patients, I'm test-running another workshop with some new hat patterns, based on the hats that I made for myself during my cancer treatment. If you can donate some of your time, we can make hats to donate to people who need them and have a fun day doing something good.

If you're going through treatment that causes hair loss, or if you have a particular person or cancer centre in mind, you're very welcome to come and make hats for yourself or your cause. All remaining hats will be distributed for free through cancer hospitals and support networks around Australia.

If you are a confident cutter (preferably with a rotary cutter), we need you as much as we need people who can use a sewing machine or overlocker!

If you can sew - BYO sewing machine (and overlocker if you have one). If you have any hat-sized offcuts of cosy knit fabrics - ponte, velour, fleece, loopback or other winter-weight knit - that you'd like to donate, please bring it along.

BYO lunch or bring a small plate to share. Tea and Coffee (and some snacks) provided.
