This is a new group that has grown out of the enthusiasm of the Pop-Up Shop project run last year in Crows Nest.

Visitors are welcome to 'try before you buy', come along to a meeting, it won't cost a thing, check out what we do and if you like us, then decide if the Group is for you. If not, why not try another Group, we have over 60 Groups around the state. 

So, visitor or not, we would love to see you at our next meeting. Join us as we learn different stitches each meeting or if you have your own project on the go then just sit, stitch and enjoy!
We have started a schedule of “Stitch of the Month” whereby each person (if they wish) takes a turn to choose a stitch they would like to learn more about.
We are so lucky to have Anne-Marie Bakewell (one of the Guild's favourite Tutors) to help us learn the stitch and variations of the stitch.

Here is the list of stitches you can learn more about (if you wish):

Month  Stitch Month   Stitch
Jan Hungarian Braided Chain  Jul  Spider Web Stitch
Feb Knotted Cable Chain  Aug  Filling Stitches discussion
Mar Triangle Stitch  Sep  ZigZag Fly stitch
Apr  Checkered Chain  Oct  Border stitches discussion
May  Fly and Two Ties  Nov  Rosette Chain
Jun  Bokhara    

Phone Jaci for more details or just come along and join us on the 4th Thursday of each month (except December), we look forward to seeing you!
