Meeting information: We are the Wairarapa Chapter. We generally meet at the Carterton Community Courthouse in Holloway Street, Carterton.
Are dates are variable as we need to fit in with other bookings, but we meet monthly.
Fees are usually $15.00 for members and $25.00 for non-members, plus the cost of anything that is supplied.
Projects are still fairly basic at this stage as we have only been going for a year. We are on the look out for tutors if anyone is interested.
Six members of the Wairarapa chapter met on March 28th at the Community Courthouse in Carterton. Di Harries from Whanganui traveled down to teach the group how to do a Herringbone pattern in long stitch. Everyone was very pleased with the end results even though it took some effort to get our heads around the process.
"The first meeting for the Wairarapa Chapter (pending) was on February 21st at Carterton. Attending were 5 members who joined Peter Whitehead to learn some flexible sewing on cords. They also spent some time looking at some historic bindings, with Peter being a mine of information on the history of bookbinding. Also 7 new prospective members joined Jill Rose to learn some basics by recovering a bought notebook and the doing a simple 6 section sew with a quarter bound square back cover. All newbies had a fun day and most seemed keen to keep on with our craft."
