New members or visitors are always welcomed. A small fee of $4 is charged at the door to cover tea and coffee.

MINI WORKSHOPS / DEMONSTRATIONS are shared by the 40 ladies who meet 9 am to 11.30 am on Thursdays. Helpful techniques are shown, and “Show and Tell” where members share their latest project and/or news is greatly enjoyed. Textile Art Techniques are among the skills shared.

PATCHWORK CLASSES: Beginners are welcome and catered for by trained patchwork Teachers. This course is open to members of the community, and is designed to teach basic techniques of patchwork. No previous experience is required. Enquiries for the 2019 course, and other related Workshops are welcome.
