Joanie Justice has been knitting and sewing hundreds of garments over the years. The clothes she creates support people in need across Western Australia.
Some of the garments Joanie has created are for premature babies who are unable to wear regular baby clothes. She also knits beanies and scarves for homeless men and women.
Since the event of COVID-19, Joanie's tailoring business, 777 Clothing Alterations in Victoria Park, has been hit hard. But despite this she has persisted in her mission, instead sourcing donated fabric from the Victoria Park community and beyond.
Joanie is now using her talents to make scrub hats and scrub wash bags which she donates to our front line health workers with these being distributed to Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital, St John of God Hospital in Midland as well as Darwin and Broome Hospitals.
