GOOD NEWS: We are currently investigating ways of conducting our Intermediate Blackwork course on-line. If we can arrange this, then all members around the state will have easy access to the course. Stay tuned!
There will be regular postings on our website and on Stitch Snippets (our Facebook) page, as well as notices to email users. Please check these sources regularly.
Branch members should contact their local committee for information regarding the specific decisions made for their branch. Ballarat Branch has closed its meeting place, and other branches may well follow.
