Subject(s): Summary: Meredith established the Copeton Crochet Collective (no knitters please) because it would be like having friends -- only with her in charge -- and because there would be no men. It comes as a nasty shock, then, when Luke, the handsome grandson of no-nonsense Edith, decides to stay and learn to crochet. Claire has five children, which is why people sometimes look at her with mild concern. She longs for an Insta-perfect life like her online hero, Siobhan, but she's drowning in domestic failure. She joins the Copeton craft group in the hope of making some non-virtual friends. Yasmin is Muslim and proud. But sometimes it would be great if people stopped asking her about her hijab and instead asked who she thought was going to win MasterChef. With plans for a new mosque, Copeton becomes a breeding ground for Islamophobia. The Copeton Crochet Club becomes the Craft Resistance. Together, this small band of fibre-arts enthusiasts battle racism and bigotry with colour and creativity, but will the fragile threads of community be enough to bind them when more than one member has something to hide?

I would like to acknowledge the traditional Custodians of the land on which we are gathered, the Darramuragal people. And pay our respects to all elders, past, present and emerging.
As we remember that under this concrete and asphalt this land is, was and always will be sacred to Aboriginal people.
