• We're Tickled Pink to have raised over $16,000 for Breast Cancer Research

October 30, 2021

This week has truly showed how special our community is and how breast cancer has affected all our lives in some way.

Your generosity towards our fundraiser has been totally overwhelming and we're so thrilled to share the news that together we have raised $12,004.36 AUD for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Thread & Maple are also tickled pink to announce that their donations totaled $3,855.70 CAD for the North American Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

This means that together we have raised an incredible $16,139.64 AUD / $15,048.47 CAD.

This is such an incredible result which has well and truly exceeded all our expectations.

Thank you so much for all your donations and support.



You can check out the final tally on our Fundraser Page here.

To say we are blessed is an understatement and each and every donation made has contributed towards this amazing result.

One day may we lose no-one to breast cancer.


To Sam and Olga from Thread & Maple and Knitwear Designer Tracie Millar of the Grocery Girls Podcast, it was an absolute pleasure collaborating with you on something so important and special to us all.

Special, special thanks also to all our generous prize sponsors who without them this would not have been possible:

Our first Shop Update for 2022 sees the return of our Merino Possum Fingering yarn, a very special yarn base produced by Wild Earth Yarns in the South island of New Zealand.
