About the Event

This special event is specially priced to allow us all to craft what we can to help these critters. There is a catch - you must bring your own supplies as outlined below. We will teach you how to make the desired item from the pattern supplied by the rescue. You may work on it here as time allows for you. If needed, you can complete it at home once you are comfortable with the stitiches. The fee to learn the pattern is $10. When you register you can let us know which pattern you are intereseted in.

Be advised that the nests and blankets, which can be used for more animals than just birds, are the easiest to make. Natural materials are best, meaning 100% wool or 100% cotton but some can be made with acrylic or a blend. You can leave your finished products here for shipping to a US hub or directly to Australia.
