About our Group

The Wollongong Group was established in 1969. Our group welcomes all stitchers from  beginners to experienced.  Our interests include a wide variety of stitching techniques from the traditional to contemporary. The friendliness and interaction between members is a feature of our group.

Workshops on a wide variety of techniques are offered at the Guild Headquarters and at Summer School (held in January each year), as well as workshops held locally by visiting tutors, these are open to members and non members alike. 

We also have an extensive library for the use of members. The group hold a yearly exhibition of members’ work.

Our Junior Stitchers group for young people between the ages of 5 to 16 years meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month between the hours of 12.30pm and 4.00pm.

A weekly stitching group is held at the Scribbly Gum Room at the Ribbonwood Community Centre, Princes Highway, Dapto every Friday from 10.00am to 3.00pm.  There is a minimal charge to cover room hire and morning tea.

Other stitching groups meet regularly during the month, information about these groups is available from the Convenor or Secretary.
