SHAZAM! 50 Magical Years

Canvaswork A Monagle 18

Canvaswork Arabian Nights Tile by Anne Monagle

Our next biennial exhibition celebrates our 50 years of stitching:  our Golden Anniversary.

1001 Arabian Nights is the theme and there will be lots of Gold as well.

Held at the Vines Road Community Centre at 49 Vines Rd. Hamlyn Heights.

From Friday 14th to Sunday 16th September 2018.

Open from 10am to 4.30pm with a $5 entry fee.

Our guidance groups have been stitching 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 are also invited to submit something to fit the theme.

Join us for this Fabulous exhibition. Refreshments will be available and a gift stall with items hand-made by our members will also feature.

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
