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.

Join the Stitchgatherers Craft Group at the Community Hall on Saturday 4 May at 10am. There will be raffles and auctions, plus the judging of the tea cosy competition. All proceeds go to the NSW Cancer Council.

North Arm Cove Stitchgatherers Craft Group ‘Biggest Morning Tea’ will be held on Saturday 4 May at the Community Hall.

The tea cosy competition was a huge hit last year and it’s on again, so start looking for ideas. Your tea cosy doesn’t have to be knitted or sewn, feel free to use any technique you like and let your imagination run wild. There will be prizes in various categories, plus a grand prize for the overall winner.

A highlight of the day will be a display of wearable art. Wearable art...

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.

Aside from the various projects undertaken by the group each year, members bring their own work to the meetings. Their skills cover a wide range of handcrafts, including embroidery, quilting and knitting. Many of the finished items will be on display at the Biggest Morning Tea next...

Knitting enjoys a revival

The art of knitting, once seen as more of a pastime for ‘grannies’ is now enjoying a revival thanks to the resurgence in popularity of handcrafted goods and the influence of craft shows and events like the Morpeth teapot and tea cosy festival.

Ask any of the ladies at the Stitch Gatherers group and they’ll tell you that knitting is a wonderfully relaxing and creative pastime. It is a positive joy to make something with your own hands - to be worn yourself or given to others. Charities are also benefiting from the knitting revival...
