March Group Meeting

We had a relaxed but productive monthly meeting on Friday.
Congratulations to members Sue Smorthwaite, Kerry Gelmi and Jacqueline Gibson for getting through to the final showcase of the Common Threads Wearable Art Competition, part of the Stretch Arts Festival Mandurah
Their garments will be part of the final showcase on the 2nd May where  the winners of the Sculptural (Kerry and Jacqueline), Avante Garde (Sue), Recycled Sections and Overall show winner will be announced.

We are very pleased to welcome new members, Alison, Karen, Susie and Valerie and hope they will enjoy being part of  our felting group. Thanks Sue#1 for making them feel so welcome.

Lorraine took the monthly workshop and showed us how to work on a large piece of felt. Using a limited amount of table space, she showed us how to lay out a long length of fabric and wool to make a scarf.
