Pick Up Stitches in partnership with Knitting for Miracle Babies
2013 winner of Corrections Victoria Community Work Partnership Awards Most Outstanding Location-Based Project
An award recognising projects to the benefit of the community, with a defined community partner, conducted at a Community Correctional Services location or a prison.
The Knitting for Miracle Babies Program is a partnership between Pick Up Stitches, the Miracle Babies Foundation and the West Metropolitan Regional Community Work Program, which is designed to create a safe environment where female offenders can productively complete their orders. The project provides female offenders with an opportunity to learn and develop skills in knitting, using donated wool to craft hand-made blankets, beanies, booties and other items, which are then donated to families with premature babies through the Miracle Babies Foundation. The items are highly sought after as these families often experience difficulty in acquiring clothing for such tiny newborns. The women also gain an invaluable support network and a sense of creativity. Many of the women who have successfully completed their community work hours have requested to continue with the program as volunteers.
Pick Up Stitches is a drop off point for the Knit One Give One (KOGO) charity
