The Tewantin Group meets on the last Saturday every month and has a regular program with a different topic each month. Plus an ongoing project of sewing items for charities and clothes for premature babies.
The Australian Sewing Guild was formed with the aim of ensuring that the art of sewing does not die. Its focus is mainly sewing by machine. It's stated objectives are:
* To share and further the growth of the art of sewing.
* To bring sewers together and encourage the establishment of sewing groups,
* To encourage and maintain a high standard of craftsmanship.
It is a not for profit national organisation, similar to one that has been operating for some time in America. Made up of enthusiastic people, with varying skills from the novice to the specialist, neighbourhood groups meet regularly throughout the country. The Tewantin Group have a small library where members can borrow patterns, books etc.
Members of the Guild can attend any neighbourhood group, some very keen members even make a point of attending neighbourhood group meetings when they are in the vicinity and on holidays! A list of all the neighbourhood groups in Australia and their meeting date and time is published in the national newsletter.
