Currently happening...

Kaye's Nuno Garment workshop is on this weekend and will be a great 2 days of felting. Our first WIP Club Tuesday was well attended with several Exhibition ideas being formulated. The dreamy Magical Slippers workshop with Sharn Bruere is SOLD OUT! A big thank you to the participants for being so flexible and allowing us to reschedule to the first weekend in March instead of April. Indeed thank you to all for showing your support and committing to our workshops and events so far. It is very much appreciated and we hope our dodging and weaving keeps us in good stead.
Our first Skill Extension Workshop Feb 19th is Needle Felting - its a great way to get those basics skills if you've never done any before. Later this year Peta Korb will be teaching her fabulous Eastern Barred Bandicoot so this workshop is perfect to prepare you. Only $50 and 3 hours in length what a great way spend a Saturday afternoon - in the airconditioned studio!

New Library Open for Business next Toss n Tell

We have been working on our library over the past 6 months, making it easier for members to browse the items and easier for our volunteers to manage the items. We have also purchased more books, magazines and equipment.

Did you know?

We have a leather craft set of tools for adding leather to your creations that may be used in Craft House.

Plus many other pieces of equipment.
There is a new simple library system for members to browse and hold items ready for collection at Toss n Tell or Tuesday WIP Club. It will also remind you when the item is due to be returned. But! You don't have to do that - you can come and browse in person. The new system is much easier for our Librarians too. There is a password to access the system and it will change each year - this is to ensure only current members have access. The password and instructions are explained on the Library Borrowing page under the Members section of the menu.

Liz & Diny will be pleased to assist you.

February 19th is our first Toss n Tell

Of the year with a demo from Martien on Instant Smocking & Sculptural Effects with the opportunity to have a go yourself. Martien will have her pop up shop - the perfect chance to get some supplies.

Our Exhibition Marks Over Time will go ahead not matter what the COVID situation is like - unless of course we are mandated out it! At an absolute worst case scenario we will make it a virtual exhibition through a variety of media - we have a Plan B (or is that Plan 427?)

Have you started your pieces?

March Toss n Tell we hope to have a marathon scarfathon - let's see how many Timeless Collaboration scarves we can make together.
