Last week the residents of the Aveo Lindfield Gardens retirement village in East Lindfield were visited by the Illawarra Machine Knitters for a fashion parade and lunch. The Knitters entertained the residents with a parade of their latest knitwear and then the models and residents enjoyed a delicious lunch together. All of the knitwear paraded or displayed was available for sale, and the timing was perfect, given the cooler change moving into autumn. The parade was varied and was structured for all ages and sizes. It featured everything from casual wear through to something for that “special occasion”. The Illawarra Machine Knitters also brought baby wear, bunny rugs, pram covers and children’s wear. The day was a lot of fun and the Aveo Lindfield Gardens residents are already looking forward to the Knitters’ return next year.
