The 2012 beanie festival was a success for Alice Springs and for me. I sold 7 of the 10 beanies that I sent this year. The 3 unsold beanies were the bubble beret, sorbet stripes and yellow lace. Beanie makers can choose to have their unsold beanies sent back to them or to donate them to the festival to be given to people who need one. I choose to donate my unsold beanies. I hope they can help to keep someone a bit warmer.
