Knitting Nannas needed for crafty activism
Desperate times call for creative protests and it doesn’t get much more creative than knitting! Combine your craft and your passion against fracking, gas and greed (and get scones)
Anyone keen to be part of a Hills Loop? You don’t even need top be a Nanna – all ages can join the knit ins!
What: KNAG (Knitting Nannas Against Gas … or fracking) Perth Loop Inaugural Meeting
When: Sat 12th March, 10 am
Where: Lotteries House, 2 Delhi Street, West Perth – easy stroll from CIty West train station and there should be enough free parking available.
Bring a Name Tag if you have one, otherwise we’ll sticker.
Do invite interested friends, neighbours, church and craft group members and family members to come along.
If the weather is fine I suggest we roll over to the little park across the street and sit by the waterfall. Bring camping chair for that occasion if you have. I’ll bring a few extra.
Plan for the morning:
* Have fun
* Get to know each other and the skeletal plan to ‘knit over Perth’, or crochet, or quilt or embroider.
* Plot out how to proceed – e.g. NOR group, SOR group, or Northern, Central, Southern groups? & How to set up for all hands on deck opportunities such as the big LNG conference coming up in April
* Bring nibbles / drinks / crafting as desired
We are also working with local people on (re)establishing groups in the South West and in the Cervantes -> Moora area, so spread the word in those directions too.
Exciting. Hope many of you can make it!
