AFTERNOON PROGRAMS


Our Afternoon Programs are open to all. We start at 1 pm sharp and run to about 2 pm. Please join us.

Jan 22   Demo Day: Back by popular request
After compiling a list of your topic requests and having a few that didn`t need an hour, we have again put together a group of our members to meet 6 of these requests. You will choose 2 demos that suit your interests to attend; each will last 30 minutes.

Feb 5   Chocolate Sweets but not to eat
Become a chocolatier and sew some miniature chocolates. Just for fun.

Feb 19   Needle Felting: 3D
Join us for part 2 of needle felting with Hazel Alexander. Last year was very popular so this time we will attempt a 3-D bird. Don’t worry if you did not attend last year; lots of help will be available.

Mar 5   Learn two new stitches
Judy Eckhardt, a very skilled needleworker and teacher at our guild, will demonstrate 2 stitches which are probably new to many of us and are easy and versatile to use in our own projects.

Mar 19   Travelling with Mavis Brown
Our own well-travelled Mavis will be speaking and showing slides of 2 trips and also of the workshops she enjoyed while in Italy and Australia and the projects she completed. The next best thing to going along with her!
