Tea Cosy Winners Announced!

Home > About Us > News & Promos


We had 57 entries in our inaugural Red Sparrow Tea Cosy competition. Every single entry amazed us with the skill and creativity involved in knitting, crocheting, felting and sewing the tea cosies.

There are 5 winners in total, the “Tea Cosy of the Year” was chosen by public vote and the category winners by 4 judges.

Our first place winner, was Rae Gilles with her adorable little entry “The Hive”.

Rae receives an amazing gift hamper from Red Sparrow Tea to the value of $250 as well as a $250 Discover card from Coffs Central.


The judges were Alison & Bridgette from Red Sparrow Tea and Lucy & Rikki from Coffs Central and we all had a difficult time agreeing on the category winners. There were SO MANY amazing entries and each and every one deserving winners.

The four category winners each receive a Red Sparrow Tea hamper to the value of $50 as well as a $50 Discover Card from Coffs Central.

Linda, the winner of the “traditional” category entered a few gorgeous tea cosies and the judges couldn’t decide on our favourite, so we’ve just declared her overall winner of the category!


We would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for donating your cosies to such an amazing cause.



We have been inundated with enquiries about purchasing the tea cosies. So, due to such high interest we have decided to hold a silent auction until Sunday 6th August. Here is what you need to do:

  1. Head upstairs to Coffs Central where the tea cosies are still on display.
  2. Choose your favourite cosy (or cosies!) and on a piece of paper write down your name, the number of the tea cosy you wish to bid on, your bid amount and your contact phone number.
  3. Drop this back into the shop and we will put in a box with the other bids.
  4. On Monday 7th August we will contact those with the highest bids and you have one week to come into pay and collect your cosy.
  5. The cosies not sold during the silent auction will be available for sale in-store from 7th August.


Remember! Every cent raised goes directly to local workshops on the Coffs Coast for “Look Good, Feel Better“.

We are definitely planning on doing this again next year, so start planning and knitting and crocheting and keep an eye out around April next year for the launch of the 2018 Red Sparrow Tea Cosy Challenge!
