April speaker

Our enthusiastic speaker, Robyn Steele Stickland from Opendrawer in Camberwell showed some of her many collections including Buttons and Embroidery tools. She discovered that many of us have similar addictions and explored the reasons why we feel the need to “hoard” such things (not to mention the dreaded “Stash” word.

Kerrie cat

Kerrie’s Crewelwork Cat

At her shop she runs classes in all sorts of textile work and also gives us a chance to recycle some of our stash at her market stall days. See her web site for more  of what’s on.

We also had fun working on the delightful kits for pincushions that Brenda Ryan had brought along. Hopefully some will be done for our next exhibition! We plan to have a group to work on making items for the exhibition and if you want to join in please see a committee member.

Come and visit Kerrie’s Cat at Our Heritage Festival display at the Wintergarden, 51 McKillop Street this weekend April 29th to May 1st : 10am to 4pm

Classes coming up include a visit from Internationally acclaimed tutor Hazel Blomkamp who will be exploring Needle Lace in Embroidery on 13th and 14th of July.
