Good Omen Goodeze Inc

Aged CareChildrenCommunityHealth CareMental Health

A charity group that makes and donates personalised comfort items to people in need and stitching for wellness programs for the Canberra community.

Our founding member Mary, knitted a beanie for a family member undergoing chemotherapy. She enjoyed the process so much, she decided to continue knitting and donated several to the ICU department at the Canberra Hospital. After hearing how much comfort the beanie brought, she started knitting knee rugs for the comfort of patients and their families. It wasn’t long before friends and other community members became involved, and voila! Good Omen Goodeze was born!

We have people of all ages and walks of life involved, from students, community groups, health practitioners, professionals and retirees.  Our members mostly create from the comfort of their own homes, but also enjoy coming together for fortnightly ‘working bees’ or special events, such as ‘Knit in Public Day’ and ‘Stitch-ins’.
