Help us save the animals in Australia
Since the fires began in Australia last year, over 12.35 million acres of land have been burned, displacing and injuring wildlife. Over 1 billion animals have lost their lives, and 90,00 have been rescued so far. In this troubling time, rescuers and veterinarians need all of the help and supplies they can be given to rescue as many more as possible. Here's how you can help!
On January 25th from 11am-2pm in the Woodrow Jones Community Hall (146 N. Main St. Rutherfordton, NC), we will be hosting a special Factory Makers workshop for all ages and experience levels. During this workshop attendees will be working together to make joey pouches, bat wraps, wallaby bags, and more.
Don't know how to sew? We'll teach you! Already an experienced sewer, crocheter, or knitter? We have patterns! Can't attend? You can help us by donating new or reusable materials like cotton/bamboo/hemp/flannel cloth (old, clean clothes count!) Please, no synthetic or mixed fabrics. These can't be used on animals. Donations can be dropped off at the museum until the 24th at 5pm.
Note: While knitters and crocheters are welcome, our staff will only be giving lessons on sewing. Crochet Hooks and knitting needles not provided.
Thank you for all of your support!
