Creative Stitching @thegallery is an opportunity to network, participate in mini tutorials, access ideas and share resources with each other. The day will be facilitated in a mentored format. Regional textile artist Christine Lethlean will guide participants to practice intuitive decision making, provide roving support for those with evolving projects and revise techniques if required.
