Sydney Royal Easter Show
Our first major event for this year was the Sydney Royal Easter Show day on Tuesday April 7th, 2015. 3 Guild members Ilana, Yvonne and Christine guided junior visitors through a simple stitching project. Die cut felt geometric shapes in a variety of attractive bright colours were stitched to heart shaped felt keyring charms, with a tab and a split ring added to make it easy to pop on a school bag or pencil case. The ladies made up 29 kits in advance to save time at the Show. The first session started at 10am and finished at midday when passers by slowed down and a much needed lunch break was taken. The final session began at 2pm and finished at 3pm when all 29 kits had been sewed up. A gold coin donation from each participant covered costs and also raised a small amount for the Guild Building Fund. Another very successful workshop day run by Junior Stitchers ! Thankyou to the volunteer helpers, your assistance was greatly appreciated. Christine.
