Wednesday Makers Group
Wednesday Makers Group
We love building communities around us…sharing skills of creating, supporting our community, and making work for great causes.
Each year the Wednesday maker’s group gather at Timeless Textiles Gallery to sew, stitch, knit, yarn and have a cuppa and create unique quirky themed items. All welcome 10.30 am – 12.30pm each Wednesday. It’s free and fun – most materials are provided.
The Wednesday Makers group is a group of community -minded stitchers who like coming together each week at Timeless Textiles Gallery and enjoy working collaboratively. The composition of the group changes with the nature of the project, usually based on community arts events to celebrate International Women’s Day each March. The group has built from the successes of the “Letting Go” and “Flying Free” projects as well as the celebrated “Stitched Up” project, seven volumes of hand stitched art, incorporating embroidery, applique, quilting, dyeing, mark making and printing for the “Stitched Up” exhibition, 2017.
Join us for our next Makers Group. It is free to attend, requires no RSVP and happens every week.
Current Community Project
Fearless Flowers, the current project of the Wednesday group at Timeless Textiles, is literally blooming. The group has been busily enjoying beautiful flowers and welcomes new people to the group each week, renewing old and developing new friendships. What is so wonderful about this group is there are no attendance obligations, no experience expectations and lots of support, care and fun.
The most important aspect of Fearless Flowers is that the group is committed to supporting and raising funds for ovarian cancer research and in particular the #PinkMeetsTeal campaign seeking government funding fairness for ovarian cancer. Congratulations to Jill Emberson and her team on the very successful launch on 8 May and thank you for including Fearless Flowers in the launch.
