The last Stitch Gatherers meeting was busy and productive, with members working on a variety of knitting, crochet and quilting projects.

Before the meeting got under way, Joan Williams read out a letter from Ronald McDonald House, thanking the group for the recent donation of knitted beanies and teddy bears. These gifts were greatly appreciated by residents, staff and volunteers. Many of the beanies donated were on display at the recent 'Biggest Morning Tea.'

Then it was time for 'show and tell'. Kay Furley amazed the group with her beautiful candlewick and lace bedspread....

The Stitch Gatherers group are delighted with the result of the recent Biggest Morning Tea. Around $1, 550 has been raised so far, with more donations and hat sales still to come.

The North Arm Cove Stitch Gatherers Group will hold the 2015 Biggest Morning Tea on Saturday 16 May, so mark that date on the calendar and start planning your entry in the "Headwear" competition.

Traditionally, the competition has centered around tea cosies, but next year, things will be decidedly different. Instead of making an item that fits on a tea cosy, we'll be asking you to make an item that fits on a head.
