Canvaswork Arabian Nights Tile by Anne Monagle

SHAZAM! 50 Magical Years 2018

Our last biennial exhibition celebrated our 50 years of stitching:  our Golden Anniversary.

1001 Arabian Nights was the theme and there was lots of Gold as well.

From Friday 14th to Sunday 16th September 2018.

Our guidance groups stitched furiously to produce some amazing group entries to the challenge of the theme. Canvaswork, Patchworkers and the Textile Arts group GeeTAG are amongst those involved. Individual members were also invited to submit something to fit the theme. The Canvaswork Group’s tiles won the Visitor’s Choice award.

Brenda Ryan won the individual Visitor’s award with her fantastic Rackham Cloth

Seniors Festival Special Invitation

By Laurene Wilkes

You are invited to our celebration for the Geelong Seniors Festival on Monday October 14th 2019 from 12 noon – 2pm

Join us for stitching, a chat, a light lunch and see what we are embroidering.

Our Sit and Sew meeting at St David’s will be open to the public between 12 noon and 2 pm. A light luncheon will be available for everyone. If you have something you are working on please bring it along, or we will provide a small item to stitch if you wish.

The Geelong Seniors Festival is the largest community celebration for Seniors in Regional Victoria and a major partner of the state wide Victorian Seniors Festival.

As well as being a great opportunity to get out and about for little or no cost, the Festival provides a rare insight into what is on in Geelong for the rest of the year, as most of the events are staged by local clubs and interest groups.
