    Can you please update your entry to specify a meeting place within the mall? It’s a pretty big place.

    I’d love to come along. I knit for a different charity, but it’s fun to knit together.

    I wanted to set one up. I tried to interest Lincraft, but they declined. Then I contacted centre management, who are slow to respond. They did say you need their permission to set up in a public area, or if you’ll be based in a café, you need the café owner’s permission.

    Hi Jane,

    I’ve just had confirmation today from Westfield and they will be setting up tables and chairs in the Centre Court area, located on level 1, outside Myer for anyone wanting to participate in WWKIP Day. Look forward to having you join us!

    Cheers, Mary

    Hi Jane! I left a reply here for you a couple of days ago, but it seems to have disappeared. I also heard back from Westfield and the event will be held on Centre Court, Level 1 outside Myers! Look forward to seeing you there!

    Hi Dianne,

    There is a list of KIP venues here on the website. Just click on the country/state you are in and check if there is one in a town near you. Cheers, Mary
