Spring has arrived – the days are getting warmer and longer, the light is changing……the signs are all here that the long Canberra winter is coming to an end. Blossom and Spring flowers are everywhere
Floriade can’t be too far away
So what better time for a new project – our new website and blog. All the work for this website has been done by volunteers. A great example of the spirit and sense of community in the Guild. So a BIG thank you to everyone but most of all to Sharon Boggon.
We couldn’t have built this website without Sharon’s expertise and design flair. Sharon’s Pintangle site is one of the most loved and admired on the Web. So if you haven’t done a TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday) or enjoyed the eye candy of Sharon’s crazy quilting and sampler then head over here and enjoy!
This is the beginning of our journey with the new website. We’ve only just begun to add the photos to the members gallery. When Sharon comes back in November from her amazing overseas trip we’re planning to add more galleries, features and newsy items.
In the meantime please be patient with us as we find our feet in this very new world of WordPress. There are bound to be some thrills and spills!
Now to other news! On Monday we had the last celebration for the Guild’s 50th birthday – a morning and evening tea. As usual there was the most amazing spread of food. Then our President Fran sprang a really cool surprise – a gift for everyone!
It was a pack of mohair threads in delicate jewel colours from Mogear. These threads have a local story as Mogear is based in Yass and owner Jenny Findlay has dyed all the threads herself in 90 shades – all of them lovely. So a BIG thank you to Jenny for an awesome gift and if you want a colour chart or more information then contact Jenny on 61 2 48458257
Bye for now!
