Tin Can Bay Craft Club members know how to celebrate!

The Tin Can Bay Craft Club will be celebrating 25 years from its inception with only 12 crafty people originally getting together to enjoy their various crafts.

It has now grown to 104 members, with on average about 70 members attending each Thursday morning in the Cooloola Community Complex, in the building down from the Tin Can Bay and Cooloola Cove turnoff.

July commenced with a bus trip to the Mary Poppins Festival and Craft Extravaganza,then many activities being taught in the following weeks: silk scarf dyeing, with Nieta Lindfield , Sashiko with Jacque Cross and Barbara Parker – a Japanese craft using pre printed fabric and a special thread, then there is the tradition “Navaho” rug with Lillian Lockel.

On August 3 another new member, Chris, will be teaching a very old craft of crochet rug, using cut up old sheets. So you can see there is no shortage of crafts to do in this group, and so many willing to share their knowledge.

Come along and see if it is for you. The club meets each Thursday at 9 am to 12 noon and there is a lucky door prize and morning tea for only $3.

The birthday on August 10 will have each table organising their own food and decorations, so get your thinking caps on! There will also be a few fun items with prizes during the morning.

See you there.
