A new year, a new beginning

It's been a while since we've posted on this blog. However we've not been idle for the past 12 months or so. The Headquarters building at Queen Street Concord West has undergone a complete transformation thanks to the foresight of past and present Committees and the tireless fundraising efforts of all the Members and their wonderful supporters. Our "ugly duckling" building is now a beautiful swan, with 3 levels and a much needed lift now available for all. We can't wait to use the bright and airy spaces to stitch and create textile art now, and hope to schedule some workshops as well for our Juniors in the near future. On Sunday 1st April, Easter Sunday, the Junior Stitchers Group will be hosting a day of short textile workshops and an information stand at the Guilds demonstration area of the Royal Easter Show at Sydney Showgrounds, Olympic Park. The Arts and Craft Pavilion, beside the Dome, is the location, please do come and visit us and join in. Each free workshop will have a limited number of seats available so it's best to call in to our stand to book a seat for your preferred time when you arrive to avoid disappointment. Please note that for the Royal Easter Show workshops bookings CANNOT be made at the Guild as usual.
The project is to be confirmed, but is sure to inspire and delight both young and old alike and will suit all levels of experience. Guild tutors will be available to guide the participants through the project and you will take home your work at the end of the workshops.
