BORDER yarn lovers say the art of knitting and crocheting is slowly disappearing.
But the Woolly-Up Wodonga group, hosted by Wodonga Council, hoped to turn that around.
Residents have been meeting at Wodonga’s Cafe Grove once a month since June to connect over all things wool.
“It’s a great idea because the art of knitting and crocheting is disappearing,” participant Michelle Oxlee said.
“There are some generations who have missed out on learning and it’s something that needs to be passed down to others.”
The Howlong resident has been travelling into Wodonga for the monthly get-togethers, but Wednesday’s gathering was the last one.
“Council has been great in organising this and we want to keep it going,” she said.
“We have been talking amongst ourselves about continuing the group.
“Some people see it as a winter pastime but it can be enjoyed all year long.”
