A spin-off from the Don’t Mine the Macquarie campaign is the existence of the River Yarners, who are creating a long woolly representation of the Macquarie River.

If you’d like to join in, the group meets at Rahamim most Fridays, 2pm to 4pm to yarn and craft together.

If you’d like to add an animal or a plant or other embellishment to the river, see the patterns – attachments and links below.
