Each year we hold full day workshops at Dence Park Community Centre, 26 Stanley Road, Epping NSW from 10am to 4pm. This year we will have our member Sandra Oldis showing you how to construct a smocked yoke dress, our member Val Alexander will do another day of 3D wool felt applique, Judith Adams an acclaimed teacher will be preparing a smocked bishop dress. 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 Oldis, and a mesh handbag with our own Hazel Drinnan.
