SIT & STITCH - Saturday Afternoons
On Saturday afternoons we open the shop for Sit & Stitch. This is your opportunity to bring along a current project, or to start a new one and then take time out to stitch in the company of others. We are there to help, and answer questions but no tuition is provided. Come and join us in our inspiring and relaxing workspace, we are limited by size (max 8), so bookings are essential. Cost per person is $10.

To find out more and make a booking, contact the shop on 9498 6831.


Monday, Wednesday and Thursday morning's throughout the year we hold in store sit & stitch classes with our local needlework tutor.

If you have a project that you need some help on or would just like to stitch in the company of others, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you. Our tutor will be there to answer your questions, provide guidence, and encouragement when necessary! Come and join us for a morning each week to get that project underway or completed. We are limited by size (maximum 6), so bookings are essential. Tuition must be pre-paid for the full term.

This is just a sample of the workshops that we have planned in 2022. More details and classes will be added as they are confirmed.

We are thrilled to have the very talented Margaret Light teaching at The Crewel Gobelin once again. Marg has been tutoring in surface stitchery throughout Australia and New Zealand since 2004, a wonderful tutor who specialises in Crewel Embroidery.

Margaret's projects are often featured in 'Inspirations' Magazine' and have recently been collated in a beautiful first book 'A Fine Tradition'. Margaret delights in sharing her exploration of early techniques with others, and finds constant inspiration for her projects from her research into the history and evolution of design. A wonderful hands on tutor, who we are lucky to call a local; don't miss out on these very special workshops while you can, Margaret has decided to retire late 2022.
