October Monthly Meeting

This month Sue#1 demonstrated how to incorporate Mohair curls into a piece of felt to add texture and design to items such as scarves, collars and garments. 

Barb Thoms from STRTETCH Arts Festival Mandurah came down to talk to the group about the 2015 Common Threads Wearable Art Competition and answered the questions that we had regarding the event.
This years theme is FABRICATION.
Anyone interested in the competition can check out the official website www.mandurah.wa.gov.au/stretchfestival.htm and download the entry forms.
