High Tea

At our first meeting of the year we celebrated the beginning of our 50th year with a high tea. We had 80 people enjoy delicious morsels while they witnessed the unveiling of the new library on the stage.

Stash bash truly was a treasure hunt.

Our first stash bash on 25 November was a huge hit with the crafty punters. There were so many amazing treasures dug out from the backs of our crafters closets to share with us. The origin stories abounded of some of the special items as did the cleaning out of studios tales.Thanks everyone, look out for the next one!

Road trip! We even stopped to smell the roses.

Alleyne, Michelle and I had a road trip today to buy some fleece for the Emporium from Del near Stanthorpe. We’ve stocked up on some lovely coloured Corriedale and Corriedale cross fleece. We were taken by the beautiful roses in Warwick and looked like total city girls walking along the gardens in the middle of the road trying to find the most beautiful and most fragrant. Come and check out the selection soon.
