Knitting with Friends

Every Friday, women from Afghan and Bhutanese backgrounds make their way to the Northern Area MRC Multicultural Centre after dropping off their children at school. The group of women have found a common love for knitting and developed a friendship. “I was looking for someone to teach me how to knit because I always wanted to make something special for my children’s birthdays. Now I have friends and we knit together,” one participant said.

The knitting workshop is facilitated by Krishna Adhikari and Beena Basnet of Bhutanese background. If you would like to join the group, contact Northern Area MRC Manager Michelle Dieu on (08) 8256 5700 or email michelle@amrc.org.au
