In preparation for Wool for Womeen

Late tomorrow night, two AWARE volunteers are flying to Cambodia to teach women how to crochet. Volunteers Louella and Stacey have been testing out patterns and perfecting their skills.

I cannot wait to see the teddy’s, cardigans, hats, and broaches that they make through Wool for Women. This program focuses on bringing new skills to women through crocheting to help build up their arsenal of skills to ensure they can earn a decent livelihood. AWARE is partnering with Dorsu to help give women in Kampot, Cambodia the tools to work towards their ideal future.

Thanks to you, we received hundreds of dollars in donations and in kind gifts to bring wool and crochet hooks to Cambodia. Wool was arriving by the box!

Last weekend, Stacey and I took a trip to the Bendigo Woollen Mills to purchase even more wool! After a  long drive from Melbourne, we arrived at the mills to be greeted by every crafters favourite sight: skeins upon skeins of wool!

I’ll be bringing you live updates from their work in Cambodia!
