Thank you for you interest

in helping Australia!

After contacting a few zoos in Australia, we have been ask to put our projects on hold for a little while ... they have received overwhelmed help.  They will be doing a call out when they need more items.

If you would still like to help out now, please make a monetary donation to the various Bushfire charities set up to help.

If you still want to DO something to help, why not look close to home and contact your local animal shelter to volunteer!


Join our guild as we do our best to help out the wildlife recovery from the overwhelming wildfires raging across Australia. 

Here is the post that got it started with us:


January 4 at 2:02 AM


If you or someone you know can KNIT or SEW - PLEASE HELP SAVE OUR ANIMALS!

We have gathered as many patterns for Knitting, Sewing or Crocheting as we can, thanks to the Animal Rescue Craft Guild.

Please follow the Heroes at the Animal Rescue Collective to find out where to send / deliver these items to.


Please SHARE this to anyone you think can assist in the recovery of our Native Animals from the Catastrophic Devastation we are facing.


As of 30th December 2019 - it was estimated that we had lost almost 500 million animals.

To ensure we can see ALL Your Amazing Efforts - PLEASE USE THE HASHTAG:

"If only our Tears could put out the Fires"

We run different workshops throughout the year.  Many are taught by our guild members.  We also invite international teachers to Calgary.

We share hosting duties with Edmonton and every June we meet in Red Deer for 3 days of Stitching and Classes.  This is open to all stitchers including non-members.

Welcome to our Online Database of the Guild Library.

We currently have over 200 books that as a member you would be able to borrow for a month at a time.

We will be going thru the library and purging old titles this year to make room (and money) to purchase new books.

The link below will take you to a read-only version of our database ... please let our Librarian know if you want to borrow any book and she will walk you through the procedure!!!

Happy Reading!!!
