What do the Promotions Team do?
We look for outside opportunities to promote the Guild to the wider community and hopefully draw new members into our web of threads and friendship. One of our successes, following our display at the Pakenham Stitch Show in 2016, is the establishment of a regular guidance group in Pakenham. Another success is the continuing sit and sew monthly sessions at the Melbourne City Library.
We look for opportunities to offer more to our current members. The Volunteer ‘Thank you’ voucher is one example. New members receive a voucher to encourage participation in a class and therefore becoming involved, meeting new friends and learning new skills. We have created new Guidance groups such as Stitch of the Month and Stitching Club to offer more opportunities to be involved.
The recent display at National Trust property Labassa showcased the Guild to a new demographic of potential members.
There have recently been a couple of retirements from the Promo team so we are inviting new members to the team. Please consider joining us. We meet only once a month for planning purposes. Many hands make light work, etc. Or if you have a special skill in Social media, marketing, graphics, etc. that you can help with when required, please let us know.
The more that you put into the Guild the more enjoyment you get back.
