Event description

Description

The Deluminators invite you to join us for Molly Weasley's Knit-In, a knitting marathon in support of Wrap With Love Inc! There are millions of people in the world suffering extreme cold. In 1992 Wrap with Love began with the idea to help as many people as possible by providing warm Wraps to ward off hypothermia and in the past 23 years we have sent more than 400,000 Wraps to people in over 75 countries, including Australia, with the help of our hardworking and generous volunteers. Just one square provides one twenty-eighth of warmth, and collectively, twenty-eight assembled squares create one whole warm and sheltering Wrap. On the 8th July this year, The Deluminators are hosting a special event in the spirit of Mrs Weasley, and Hermione, where you can knit for positive change in this world!

~ How It Works ~
A 'knit-in' is a day where lots of people come together to knit as many squares as we can all at once. The Deluminators will be providing materials (needles and wool) for anyone who registers before July 1st (a week before the event!), which you can collect before the day if you want to get knitting early, or at the event. When you register, you can also start using the website to get your friends and family to sponsor your knitting goals to raise funds for Wrap With Love. This is an important part of the event, as this goes towards distributing the finished blankets which is a world-wide endeavor!


Registration costs $5 on the website before the event, or you can register online and pay at the door for $10.

When you register there will also be an option to purchase a Molly Weasley's Knit In limited edition T-Shirt, more details announced soon!


You can knit in teams, on your own, or come along on your own and join a team! Team names are encouraged. There will be prizes for teams and individuals who achieve their goals, look great doing it, or even just have fun trying! Categories and prizes to be announced soon.
We'd love to see you getting excited about the knit in on social media using the hashtag #weasleyknitin to share your preparation or progress (there will also be a social media prize!)
Knitters of all skill level (or no skill!) are welcome, there will be lots of our volunteers around to help you and it's a great opportunity to learn. There will also be a FREE knitting class/workshop on Saturday June 10th so you can get yourself knit ready details to come soon!

[If you need some inspiration, watch Gilmore Girls episode "Knit, People, Knit" (S07E09) and check out the Stars Hollow Knit-A-Thon, it'll be just like that but indoors and not for as long, and only knitting squares to be donated to charity not just raising funds.]
