Wrap with Love at Wingham Library, Wednesdays in July

THE knitting needles have been working overtime at Wingham library this month as the Wrap with Love event takes place in the Manning.

The Wingham group meets to knit wraps to send to the charity’s warehouse and these warm wraps are then distributed to the less fortunate. 

The organisation is in its 22nd year and started with the idea of knitters and craft workers using up their extra wool by knitting squares that could be sewn together to make a blanket for an adult.

The wraps are sent throughout Australia and the world to charity groups and aid agencies.

The group will meet every Wednesday in July at Wingham library between 10am - 12 noon and they are seeking more people to come lend their knitting hands.

Each knitted or crocheted square must be 25cm by 25cms and can be donated to the charity year-round.

For more information about Wrap with Love call Chris Wheeler on 6581 0395 or simply turn up on Wednesday with knitting needles in hand.
