The course comprises 4 one-day workshops (9.30am to 4.00pm) with time in between to allow participants to absorb the information and complete the “homework”. Comprehensive notes are given.

'Threads of Gold' Convention

September 20 - 22 2019
Place Tradewinds Hotel, 59 Canning Highway, Fremantle
Time All Day

We will be holding several events to celebrate our golden anniversary, and one of them will be a three-day convention to be held at the Trade Winds Hotel in picturesque Fremantle from 20-22 September 2019.

The Convention will be open to everyone and will include a range of activities designed to excite and inspire those new to embroidery as well as those whose excellence comes from 50 years (or more) of experience with fabric, needle and thread.  It will also be an opportunity to reflect on how much we have grown and how things have changed over the past 50 years and imagine the directions that embroidery might take over the coming decades.
