Polling Place

Yes, your favourite house of fibre is a polling place!

We will have the ubiquitous democracy sausage sizzle and an assortment of baked goodies from our members. We will fire up the barbie at 8 am and cook until we run out of our delicious butcher (Gordon & Luxton) sausages.

So come, get a sausage, a cake and a cold drink…. oh and you had better vote too!

Pop in and see us at Richard Randall Studio at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-tha. Our members have been very busy making beautiful work to sell. You can buy handspun, handwoven, felted, dyed, sewn, knitted, crocheted, and all handmade yummy items.

Knit a beanie with Feeney!

Join us in making beanies for ABC’s Kat Feeney’s project for the charity GIVIT. We are knitting and crocheting beanies to keep Brisbane heads warm. Acrylic yarn is best to use as it’s easiest to care for. Drop off at ABC studios at Southbank or our premises at Auchenflower by or on 30 June 2023.

Need a beanie pattern?

There are lots of free patterns on the internet. Google is your friend! For example, if you can knit only plain (knit) stitch, try googling “garter stitch beanie pattern free beginners” or something like that. 

Also, if you’re unsure of a technique, do a search on YouTube where you will find many helpful videos.

In the meantime, here’s a pattern for beginner/intermediate knitters.
