There are two general meetings each month.

  • The first Saturday of the month (10 am) includes a mini-workshop. You can bring your lunch and stay and stitch afterwards.
  • The second Tuesday of the month (10am) usually includes a speaker. You can bring your lunch and stay and stitch afterwards.

The two general meetings each month give you a chance to socialise and get to know other members, borrow library books, pick up bits and pieces from our treasure island trading table and check out members’ newly completed work. They are held in the Textile Art Centre.

There is no charge for the meetings, however if you want to participate in a mini-workshop we ask for a $5 donation. Visitors are always welcome.
