Library groups knit Murwillumbah community together
THE cold weather has certainly arrived, so it's good to know there's help at hand for those in need of a little warmth, thanks to the generosity of the Murwillumbah Stitch and Craft Group.
The crafty crew meet each Tuesday for a couple of hours from 9.30am at the Murwillumbah Library, making friendships while they stitch, knit and crochet.
Community services co-ordinator at the Murwillumbah Community Centre, Amanda Lindh, picked up a donation of the group's colourful and cosy work - all created at the library over the past six months.
It's the second time the group has made a donation of handmade items to the community centre, including scarves, beanies, socks, blankets and gloves.
"We distribute the items to people in need when they come to the centre for support and case management," Amanda said.
"We're always grateful for donations of food and warm clothes."
Donations can be made directly to the centre at Knox Park (Nullum St side) in Murwillumbah.
The craft group also welcomes donations of wool, knitting needles and crochet hooks.
Donations can be dropped off to the Murwillumbah Library.
