🧵Threads of Kindness❤

WE NEED YOU!  Love to sew?  Want to be part of a feel good project? The Threads of Kindness Project is a KNLC initiative funded by the Sidney Myer Foundation making bedcovers for the victims of domestic violence. A community project in every sense – all fabric has been donated by local business, Highly Sprung Interiors, with the bedcovers being sewn together by people within the KNLC community and then passed on to a women’s shelter. We hope that this practical, yet basic need, warms not only their bodies but also their hearts If you would like to be part of this wonderful project please contact the centre 9853 3126 or email
