The Alice Springs Beanie Festival has been and gone for another year. It was good to hear some members had sold beanies and skeins of wool again because the competition is just getting bigger and bigger. It’s reassuring to know we have grown with it. Margaret shared her copy of the Spirit of the Land which was published to celebrate 20 years of the Beanie Festival.
In it was a lovely picture of Maria’s “It’s nearly opening time ” award winning beanie from 2009. Maria is full of skills , talents and surprises and , as a senior member, she is an excellent role model. We loved celebrating seeing her beanie in a publication and we congratulate her. It’s a great beanie.
