Members are continuing with everything from finishing projects (that might have been waiting for a while!) to trying something new for them, or any kind of textile work. After a short lull in dog photos, here’s another one – I admit it took me a few moments to figure it out!

The Blog is Back! April 2020
Due to time and volunteer pressures, our Blog has been idle for quite a while. However, while in the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus we are unable to all meet in person, we have decided to share some of our members’ recent work here.
Guild members are continuing to produce a huge variety of work. It’s nice to see the progress being made on items, whether slowly or very fast! Although there are no dog photos this week, who knows what the future may bring?
Apart from the busy behind the scenes work going on in the Guild Library and Recycle Room, members have been working on all types of projects. If you’re wondering why there’s a non-craft photo, I couldn’t resist because it’s the best reason for not stitching that I’ve heard in a while! (Apologies to members if I’ve mixed anything up – I seem to have had a few “technical difficulties” in sorting photos!)
Members have been very happy to be able to resume some small meetings, and share their work in person (subject to appropriate restrictions, of course). For those of us who are unable to attend for now, here is a little selection.
Our “regular” weekly sessions don’t usually take place on an ACT Public Holiday, however in these different times, we are finding more flexible ways to operate. For details of our current meeting procedures for members, see here.
It’s a little quiet on the members’ photo front this week, although I’m sure that there is plenty of craft work of all kinds going on. Sarah K’s comment prompts me to remember how great it is when the picture starts to “appear” when doing counted cross stitch.
However I have heard on the grapevine that some members are still contemplating what to do about this year’s “Members’ Challenge” project, and I confess I’m one – will my idea work out? Who knows, but I’m pressing on.
