Community, Cake and Crochet presented by Full Tilt Nanna

  • The Windsor Workshop Level 1 115 Chapel Street Windsor, Vic 3181 Australia (map)

As part of Craft’s annual celebration of the handmade, Craft Cubed Festival, The Windsor Workshop is proud to announce our contribution to this coming together of Australia’s craft and design sectors. In collaboration with Full Tilt Nanna and St Kilda Mums we will be showcasing CRAFTING COMMUNITIES within our locale, and how these hidden networks and meaningful connections are forged through contemporary crafting. 

What started off as a series of 20cmx 20cm crocheted squares, this collaborative affair between Full Tilt Nanna and St Kilda Mums has become what can only be described as a truly heart warming event (both metaphorically and literally). Bringing together local crochet volunteers, Anthea Abell co-ordinates a bunch of enthusiastic crafters each fortnight to join the squares that have been donated from all over Australia and the world. 

Thoughtfully curated into beautiful blankets, these woollen warmers are donated to St Kilda Mums. CEO Jessica Macpherson and her team, then hand them onto the women and families around Melbourne that need them most. A job they have been doing now for more than 8 years.

We would like to extend to you an invitation to join both Anthea and Jessica in a one off event at The Windsor Workshop as part of the CRAFT CUBED FESTIVAL on Sunday, August 27th from 2 - 4 pm where you, too, can take part in an afternoon tea to raise money to buy our goal of 20 cots for St Kilda Mums. There is also the opportunity to take part in crocheting a woollen square to be made into a blanket for a special family, whilst enjoying a delicious afternoon spread kindly supplied by the legends:-
