The Wagga Wagga Group of the Embroiderers' Guild of NSW (WWEGS to their friends) will be setting up in the library on the first Friday of every month, from 10am - 12noon. And what will they embroider? All sorts of birds, in all sorts of ways, to make for sale at their upcoming exhibition in October, with proceeds going to the Wagga Women's Health Centre.
But wait - here's the best part! WWEGS would like to open this activity up to ANYBODY who wants to join in. They will provide the fabric, needles and threads, and you can stitch a bird yourself, in any shape or form. Feel free to put in a stitch, stuff a wing, attach a feather, or make a whole bird - as much or as little as you want.
