As this year steadily draws to a close (where has it gone!), the Stitch Gatherers group are making plans for a busy 2014.

There’s the Biggest Morning Tea next May and the group are also looking at a major project, inspired by the recent “Yarning Our Country” exhibition – an amazing display of plants, animals, trees, people, buildings, machinery, clouds, grass, water insects, flowers etc., all knitted in 3D. Over 200 knitters of all ages and from all over NSW made this woollen wonderland, displayed at the Gloucester Gallery. Several members of Stitch Gatherers made...

These were some of the choices facing the judges at the Biggest Morning Tea on 4 May. The Tea Cosy competition attracted entries ranging from traditional to totally outrageous and choosing the best in each category was not an easy task.

THE BIGGEST MORNING TEA, THAT IS! You've still got time to whip up that prize winning tea cosy. And don't forget the exhibition of wearable art - we're looking for hand made interesting items that can be worn or used as an accessory.

The Stitchgatherers group

Fourteen ladies from the Stitchgatherers group wined and dined in style at Lillies and Limes Morpeth to celebrate their last meeting for 2012. After lunch the group posed in front of the completed Balloon quilt, which will soon be delivered to Ronald Mcdonald House.

The restaurant was privately booked, so the ladies could "let their hair down". Conversation was lively (and loud) and the food excellent. It was a very enjoyable day, ending with a bit of Christmas shopping at the many Morpeth specialty stores.
