New beanie com­pe­ti­tion

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

One of the new and ex­cit­ing fea­tures of this year’s Corowa Show is the in­tro­duc­tion of the beanie com­pe­ti­tion.

Ahead of the highly-an­tic­i­pated show this Sun­day, get out your knit­ting nee­dles and cro­chet hooks and be­gin con­struct­ing your own adult or chil­dren’s bean­ies.

All bean­ies can be en­tered into the show and do­nated to two won­der­ful or­gan­i­sa­tions; adult bean­ies will go to Hill­top Al­bury Wodonga Pa­tient and Carer Ac­com­mo­da­tion Cen­tre man­aged by Fight Can­cer Foun­da­tion, while chil­dren’s bean­ies will go to Maya’s Rest which is sit­u­ated on top of a hill in Yass NSW and is set on 12 acres sur­rounded by beau­ti­ful coun­try­side, a few min­utes from Yass and 45 min­utes to Can­berra.

Maya’s Rest of­fers re­spite free of charge to fam­i­lies of chil­dren with se­ri­ous ill­nesses and those in home based end of life care. They also of­fer time away for fam­i­lies who are griev­ing the loss of a child.

Beanie en­tries may be de­liv­ered to the Craft Shop in Ruther­glen, South Corowa Coun­try Store and the Corowa Show­grounds from 11am to 4pm each day this week.

Beanie en­tries are 50 cents each and there will be a 1st and 2nd prize to be won in each sec­tion. Any queries can be sent to Jan McKenna on 0427 331 148. You can also visit this link to down­load a beanie pat­tern: http://www.­pe­ti­tions/beanie-knit­ting-com­pe­ti­tion.
