THE TEWANTIN NEIGHBOURHOOD GROUP of the Australian Sewing Guild -- known as The Gilded *Lilies* Sewing Circle. *(Ladies industriously learning interesting exciting sewing). The next meeting is on Saturday 27th June, 9.00 a.m. for a 9.30 start. Jenny Waddell, will be our guest teacher for the day. She is going to show us how to do a tab front with revere or stand-up collar and how to attach a self-strip to a V Neckline. She will also provide lots of tips on how to sew knit fabrics. If you are interested in participating YOU MUST do some preparation beforehand and in order to do this you will need a pattern and the instructions, which Jenny has prepared. A limited number of these were distributed at the last meeting. If you did not get the Instructions and the Pattern Sheets contact Barbara (07) 5474 2454. Also bring your Sewing Machine and lunch, morning tea is provided.
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.
The photographs are of our last month meeting with the guest teacher Alison Wheeler (known as the Sewing Lady). For more information on becoming a member ring Barbara on (07) 5474 2454. New Members and Visitors are always welcome.
