There have been a few pieces of media coverage in the last week or so. Perhaps you might be interested in reading this.
Or in today's SMH's Essential, a shot of One Red Robin's 'Matryoshka', and details of how crafters/artists can get involved in Handmade Help. (I don't have a scanner, sorry folks for the dodgy shot!)
If you know anyone who's handy with a needle and thread, encourage them to thread up and get stitching too.
