Please watch this Video about KFBN!

I belong to a wonderful charity, Knitting for Brisbane's Needy - which came into being in January 2006 due to a dream of my friend Karen. We are on Yahoo groups, and knit and crochet warm clothes, blankets and other necessities for the needy and homeless in our state of Queensland. We have now made more than 140,000 items since then!!

Recently, we entered a competition organised by Sunsuper, to win $5000, simply by encouraging, urging, begging and pleading with people, everywhere in Australia, to vote for us! And we were successful!! Yaaay!!!!

A documentary has been made about this project Sunsuper Dreams, which you can find here http://youtu.be/8csRZrG8WAw

The first segment is all about Knitting for Brisbane's Needy - I hope you enjoy learning about us.

I live in Toowoomba, Queensland and have been trying to get a Toowoomba branch off the ground - if you live in or near Toowoomba, and happen to see this blog post, and you can knit or crochet and would like to help, please do contact me!
