Crows Nest Evening Stitchers

Meetings:4th Thursday of each month (Jan-Nov), 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Contact:Email cnesconvenor@gmail.com 
or phone Jackie 0408 976 582  or Marian 0409 660 072 
Meets at:Northside Baptist Church Hall, 63-65 Willoughby Road, Crows Nest. We meet in the Baptist Centre which is the building next to the church. See street photo below.
Fees:$30 Jan-Jun and $30 Jul-Nov to cover room hire and incidentals          

This group grew out of the enthusiasm of the Pop-Up Shop project run some years ago 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 StitchMonth Stitch

Apr Checkered Chain Oct Border stitches discussion

Come along and join us on the 4th Thursday of each month (except December), we look forward to seeing you!
