The club was founded in 2,000 by Nola, Shirlie, Jenny & June. Since then it has become as diverse as the people in it with mothers & daughters, good friends & new good friends. From patchwork & quilting to knitting animals, soft toys & chooks to raise money for “Relay for Life”, crocheting, embroidery, tapestry & whatever else takes the fancy. Knowledge & skills are shared, laughter & good times are compulsory, doing something or nothing in great company, everyone gets back much more than they give. Family, friends, fetes & charities benefit from the labours of love produced by our group.
A new technique is learnt at the Tumut retreat each year. This year it was landscape quilting. Shirlie & daughter Karen are regular participants, with Karen treasuring the special time she gets to spend with her mother who loves these classes & other group projects. Everyone heads home with a well-developed project ready for show & tell at the next gathering.
Why do we come to Tuesday’s group? It has a happy, enjoyable & inviting atmosphere where we can share our successes & challenges (someone will have the answer) then see the beautiful work created by the talented people within the group. Nola still comes not only because she’s addicted, but because she has the key.
As Irene put it…….we talk, we laugh, we cry & we learn…..never a dull moment. And Rowena summed it up with “I love Tuesdays”.
See YOU next Tuesday at 10:00am
