Isolation Medley by The Starlets
In light of the several weeks everyone has been spending in isolation, I think everyone could use a little light-hearted pick-me-up.
Credits to The Starlets for their great work!

Nundle Knitters Knitting Knockers at Nutmeg Knits!
The local knitting group of Nundle “The Click Clackers” will host a ‘knit in’ on Wednesday 23rd May for Knitted Knockers. The event will be hosted by Megan Carberry of Nutmeg Knits, a new wool shop in Nundle. The knitters will be making a pair of Knitted Knockers each which will be given back to us for quality control and then distributed to women in hospitals who have had mastectomies.
Inspired by the Gunnedah Ladies who hosted ‘knit in’ in a few week ago, the Click Clackers decided to do the same, with 12 local knitters now registered with us, ready to spend the day knitting, and no doubt chatting, for a cause which affects so many women.
Have a look at the Facebook event here:
Knitting will start at 9:30am on May 23rd, at the Mount Misery Gold Mine Cafe, Gill Street Nundle. We’d love to see you there!
