SHE has only lived in Orange for a couple of years but Johanna Moes has already made her mark on the community by knitting 15 blankets for those in need.
Ms Moes took park in the annual Wrap with Love campaign to knit squares to create warm blankets for disadvantaged people across the world.
In its 10th year, Wrap With Love has distributed warm wraps to countries as far flung as East Timor, Tanzania, Uruguay and Pakistan.
This is the second year Ms Moes has been involved in the Orange Knit-In, which was held in June and July.
She said it was a great way to get to know her new community better.
“It’s great to work with people and see what’s going on in Orange,” she said.
Ms Moes took park in a morning tea hosted by the Orange City Library this week to thank the volunteers for their hard work.
Librarian Lisa Martin said about 30 knitters were involved on a regular basis this year, however, many more people in the community dropped off knitted squares to the library.
“We’ve had a fantastic response, the Orange community is very generous,” she said.
To-date there have been 651 squares donated, making 72 blankets to give to those in need.
