It was a scorching hot day, but the ladies from Stitch Gatherers were ‘cool as cucumbers’ at their choice of venue, Karuah RSL.

Before the feasting got under way, Joan Williams thanked the twelve members present for their hard work during the year and passed on a suggestion from Maureen Kelly for a special event at the 2016 Melbourne Cup Lunch. This project will involve craftwork from the group and everyone is keen to get started.

The meat pies and sausage rolls flew off the table and Maureen Kelly’s electric knife ran hot as she dished out the roast beef sandwiches. But the big hit of the day was the mushy peas, which the diners attacked with gusto!

Adam Price from Blue Water Cowboys kept the music going and the toes tapping. A few brave dancers took the floor and there was an impromptu “limbo” session thanks to Wilma Greenway and a borrowed broomstick!

Join The North Arm Cove YESS Committee at their "Aussie Bush Lunch" from noon Saturday 29 August at the Community Hall.

This event is to encourage North Arm Cove families to support the YESS project, an iinitiative to provide students entering high school with a $100 grant to purchase sporting gear or equipment. It's also a jolly good excuse to get together for a hearty lunch and a fun filled afternoon.

Lunch will be about as Aussie as you can get and will include pies with mushy peas, sausage rolls, potatoes in their jackets...

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.

Around 60 people attended, including a fair sprlnkling of men who really got into the spirit of the auctions and dug deep into their wallets for the Cancer Council.

The hat competition featured some wild and wacky items, as well as traditional beanies and chemotherapy caps and the Judges had a difficult choice....

Members of the North Arm Cove Stitch Gatherers group have put their heads together to come up with an initiative to encourage an interest in sport by young students about to enter High School.

Through various fund-raising activities throughout the year, money will be raised to provide a subsidy of $100.00 for students to spend on sporting fees, garments or products of their choice at the time of commencing High School.

At the end of each year, an awards night will be held and $100.00 distributed to each eligible student.

YESS will launch officially in...

Headwear will feature in 2015Annie44Thu, 16/10/2014 - 2:49pm

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. Your headwear can be knitted, crocheted, felted, sewn, woven or crafted in any way possible. If it fits on...

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.
