Hello reader
Good morning felters!
As you know we meet at the wonderful facility Alexander Park Craft House provided by the City of Stirling and without this facility groups like us would not have permanent homes. Due to the chaos of last year and COVID, Craft House has lost all of the after school groups which provide valuable income for the management committee to maintain and improve our facility. These after school slots 3pm - 6pm are perfect for many activities and at are very reasonable rates. If you know of anyone who may be looking for such a venue for these type of activities please let them know how wonderful Craft House is and send them to the web site apch.com.au

On the news front there will be a announcement for a major event coming in 2022. Stay tuned there will be more to come.

Do you know about our Workshop Hosts?
The primary role of the Workshop Host is to assist the tutor where required and to make the logistics of the workshop run smoothly for the tutor and all enrolled participants. Although you can not participate you can observe the techniques then practice them at home. If you would like to be a Workshop Host please let any of the committee know or email feltwest.president@gmail.com
