Hi team. I’ve been approached by a friend in Australia to help make joey pouches for some of the animals affected by the wildfires. I’ll be working with Sarah, a member of the Animal Rescue Craft Guild. I’ll be making and collecting joey pouches to mail out on February 5, 2020. It isn’t just cash donations that they need. They’re really in need of the man power right now.
How can you help?
Make a joey pouch. Mail it to me or get it to me locally by February 5. Drink some tea.
Here are the patterns:
Knit or Crochet Micro Joey Pouch
They’re very simple. For us Americans, 8-ply yarn is a DK weight with size 6 needles.
You can line them yourselves or, if you don’t sew, Sarah has agreed to line any pouches she gets without a liner.
Because shipping to Australia can be pricey, if you can get yours to me by February 5, I’ll mail them out all together. You can mail them to me at this address or make arrangements to get them to me locally.

Try to let me know if you plan to help so I can plan accordingly. Any questions? Send me an email!
Also check out the American sister group for ARC. They’ve got a lot of resources and additional patterns.
