About our group:

The Jervis Bay Group is a small group of stitchers who first met in 2022 in member’s homes around the shores of the wonderful bays and basins of Jervis Bay. Our member’s skills encompass emerging and skilled embroiderers to practising artists. Meeting activities range from just ‘stitch and chat’ to excursions to Art Galleries or experimenting with varying artistic/stitching/dyeing processes. The membership base is small due to limited space and interested persons can contact the convenor for more information.
