Each year in January special workshops are run as part of our Summer School program. Check out the Juniors Workshops page for details. 
Stitching can be addictive and rewarding and this is a great way to introduce young people to a skill (or even a future profession) which no doubt will endure in the years ahead.

Meetings 3rd Saturday of the month   1pm - 4pm (during school term)
Meets at Tarrawanna Community Hall, 51 Meadow Street, Tarrawanna

Our Wollongong Junior Stitchers Club has been active for many years. At the beginning of the meeting we try to introduce a new stitch which is followed by a new project and some time to work on a previously commenced project. 
A newsletter is sent out each month during term with a reminder of the meeting date and time. 
We are very proud of the efforts of our Juniors as they learn new stitching techniques through Primary school into the higher grades of Secondary school. We have even helped several HSC students prepare their major work for examination.
We have lots of fun doing creative things so why not come along (even bring a friend) and see what we do.
