We are about to have our Annual General Meeting at which we ratify the appointment of those members who have been nominated to positions on the committee for next year. Thanks to those who have thrown their names into the ring this time.
The meeting is on Monday 10th December from 10am at St David’s Hall, Aphrasia Street Newtown. We welcome new members to join our many activities.
Summer School is an exciting time for us and there are so many things to try. See the Classes page for full details.
Blackwork, Scrumbling, Brenda’s Rackham Fragments and Needle lace are all on the list. Drawing for design is an important skill that we all need and we have a tutor from South Australia – Lorelle Leham to set us on the right path.
Kathryn Harmer Fox is to visit later in the year, very exciting.
We are also planning a retreat at Melrose Cottage in Ballan 15th – 17th April, Contact us now if you are interested
