Basic sewing kit



Beads & wire – Bunyip is the place to go, ask for advice & the lovely ladies will help

Paper & pens for templates


We will be in our new home at the RSPCA shop in South Street

You can purchase any items from the shop on the night & feel free to bring any donations you wish.

Many thanks to everyone who joined us in our new home this month.

Judging by the feedback you all seemed to like the new venue, it had a cosy feel & was much brighter than the Phoenix.

With this in mind I’ve decided to hold the next 2 meetings there & possibly into 2014.
