School Holidays Program

Classes are usually held on selected days of school holidays. Generally there will be two sessions: 9am till 12.30 and 1.30 till 5pm. Children may attend the whole day but will need to bring lunch and morning/afternoon tea.

Classes are for school age children of 7 years and upwards. All skill groups are catered for: children who have never used a needle, those who can use a needle a little bit, and those who want to learn more complicated embroidery stitches. Classes are open to both girls and boys.

The next program is on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd July. Cost is $40 for half a day or $75 for a full day. Bookings are essential. Booking forms and any enquiries can be sent to

Young Stitchers activities

There are fun projects graded by level of ability from the child who has never stitched before to the advanced stitchers and all the levels in between. There are usually several members of the guild in attendance providing guidance and help to the young enthusiasts and parents and carers are welcome to stay.

It’s wonderful to see the energy and creativity they bring to learning to stitch. Watching their confidence grow with each new project they take on is a real treat \o/ \o/

The Young Stitchers are included in the Annual Exhibition and have a special display area for their work. Here is a photo from the Guild’s 2013 Exhibition:
