Each year we hold full day workshops at Dence Park Community Centre, 26 Stanley Road, Epping NSW from 10am to 4pm. Over the years we have learnt a variety of different smocking, heirloom and construction techniques to help us through the process of making a beautiful hand smocked item. In 2016 we had Lyn Weeks with sleeve & hem finishes and Judith Adams with a circular pincushion or tuffet. In 2017 we had heirloom sewing with Lynne Holyoake, a crewel embroidered tape measure cover by Carollyn Pearce and fabric manipulation with Julie Trickett. In 2018 we had another crewel 2 day workshop with Carollyn Pearce, this time a book cover, as well as a smocked bag with our own Marie Corney and a Mountmellick workshop with Yvette Stanton. In 2019 we had another heirloom class with Lyn Weeks, a construction day with our member Sandra O, and a mesh handbag with our own Hazel. This year we have a felt applique class with our member Val Alexander, a 2 day construction workshop with our member Sandra Oldis, machine embroidery with our member Margaret Maclean plus other workshops still to be confirmed.
