Thanks for your offer of assistance to this community project, we send out kits,(not just the pattern) to keep the national quality of control and our “duty of care” towards the breast cancer patient. Each kit has the pattern, 100% cotton and fiberfill. The Kit has headquarters details so please do not hesitate to contact us for any knitting queries in between (10:00 am – 04:00 pm).
Please do not distribute the pattern or photo copy the pattern, it is a registered pattern and we have the copy right on it. We want the national logo to always appear in pink. We have to keep track of the groups/individuals and the kits for with postage, packing and the 100% Cotton.
- We don’t knit in wool, only 100% Cotton (Bendigo Woolen Mills Cotton)
Could we please have your address so we could send out a kit and if you could put a postage amount of $10 into our account it would be appreciated.
