QCWA's crafty crew gets ready for Christmas

THIS week I will focus on QCWA Border Division Handcraft which is held in the QCWA Condamine Valley/Warwick Branch Rooms each Wednesday from 9-11am.

Classes finish on December 5 for a well-deserved break for our teachers and start again on February 6, 2013, cost will then be $3 which includes morning tea.

You do not have to be a member to attend these classes, if you need assistance with any handcraft you are doing or would like to learn a new handcraft, there are teachers available to assist you and you will be welcomed in friendship.

Mrs Nancy Hoey who is not a member has been attending handcraft classes for some time since retiring to Warwick and really enjoys making her lovely greeting cards.

We are holding classes in November making small articles for Christmas presents and decorations, our ladies are really enjoying this.

Of course all the usual handcrafts are also being taught.

Six Border Division teachers attended and enjoyed classes in Toowoomba at the October teacher's school.

Schwalm, drawn thread, needle-weaving and gold work classes will be offered as a result in the New Year.

Our State handcraft competition was judged and congratulations must go to Marilyn Dunn of Glen Aplin with two firsts, a second and a third and Judy Leech with a first among others.

Thank you to all the handcraft teachers.Handcraft not only offers teaching for many different handcrafts but company and friendship as well, further information please call Gail 4661 3521 or Michelle 4667  1690.

NB. My apologies for omitting Michelle Slater on being awarded third place in the QCWA essay competition at State Level in the recent State Conference Report.
