It felt more like Summer as the ladies arrived for our Annual Stitching weekend. Leonie of Leonie Bateman Designs, Shelly Kelly & Marg Low were our talented tutors this year. They had designed a very diverse range of projects for the ladies to try on the day. Goodie bags were full of exciting things, including 3 complete kits & 8 patterns to chose from for their day of stitching. The hardest thing was to decide which project to try first. We had ladies from Brisbane, Horsham, Mildura, Stawell, Ballarat & many places in between. Many enjoyed meeting up with other stitching friends they have made over the years. The day was filled with lots of chatter, laughter, stitching & some shopping. We love organising this weekend & seeing the ladies enjoying their day.
What a great time the ladies had last weekend at the Winter Workshops. Our talented tutors Zoe & Gail expertly took the ladies through the techniques of template piecing & needle turn applique. It was a very cold weekend so, perfect weather for sitting & sewing. This year we chose the local Neighborhood House facility as our location, which proved to be perfect. Keep posted to see the progress of some of the projects.

Yes, I know I am very late with this post, but better late than never. Our stitching weekend was a great success with talented tutors, Gail Pan, Helen Stubbings & Jennifer Knol. Our ladies arrived to the see the Community Centre decorated with large pink & aqua paper flowers, matching goodie bags & an amazing display of samples by the tutors. Not sure how Helen got all hers in her luggage from Tassie. Ladies tried a variety of skills from wool applique to backstitch & tiny hexogans. Thanks Gail, Helen & Jennifer bringing your expertise to us. Thanks also to the ladies who came & made our weekend such a success.
Jennifer had a busy day demonstrating her felt applique with Lexie & Janet watching on.
