ON WORLD Wide Knit in Public
Day on Saturday, June 10, the Art-
ists’ Society of Phillip Island Textile
Artists unveiled the image to be used
in a community arts project to cel-
ebrate the 150th anniversary of set-
tlement of Phillip Island next year.
The project involves piecing to-
gether small knitted squares to
recreate the image which is taken
from a postcard from the 1870s.
It was sourced from memorabilia
held by the Phillip Island Histori-
cal Society and depicts a group of
people waiting for the steamer on
the pier at Cowes.
The ASPI textile artists are call-
ing on all knitters to get involved
with the project.
They will be happy to teach you
if you don’t know how to knit but
would like to learn.
The final artwork will be a mas-
sive 5m x 2.5m wall hanging to be
donated to the Bass Coast Shire
Each square is just 5cm x 5cm
and an estimated 5000 knitted
squares need to be made.
The Textile Artists are hoping
enough local knitters will vol-
unteer so that the mural can be
completed by the end of this year.
A lot of stitching will be re-
quired early next year to con-
struct the textile artwork – it is
planned that this will be done in
the first half of next year with the
final piece ready be presented to
the council on Queen’s Birthday
The ASPI Textile Artists will be
holding periodic workshops and
kits with some yarn and a leaf-
let explaining requirements are
available for anyone wanting to
become involved in this amazing

weed J Stubbs (Jaive McEwan).
Nicole’s performances of the num-
bers ‘Big, Blonde and Beautiful’ and
‘I Know Where I’ve Been’ are guaran-
teed to wow audiences.
Nicole, who also performed in
the ‘Vagina Monologues’ staged by
