About the event
If you are looking for a warm beanie and a cosy scarf these chilly wintry days, the Redland Museum at 60 Smith Street, Cleveland, is the place to go.
The annual Beanie Tree celebrates its 13th anniversary this year and always blooms from 1st June to 31st August. It boasts hand knitted winter beanies in a variety of colours and patterns.
The ones featuring cables always sell fast, but there are also loom beanies , which are woven on a plastic loom.
Something for everyone.
All items blooming on the Tree in the museum foyer are priced at $10, except the children’s and babies’ beanies, which are priced at a very reasonable $5. All proceeds from sales go directly to the museum: there is no middle man!
More information on the history of the beanie, which has its origins in Medieval Europe, can be found on the museum website www.redlandmuseum.org.au
The museum is open every day from 10 a.m to 3.30 p.m.
