State Handicraft Committee members are willing to visit your group or branch to share their expertise in card making, knitting, crochet or embroidery. Contact us with possible dates, times and location. All we ask is that we join you in shared refreshments.
A visit to State Office
Has your branch considered a visit to State Office for one of your meetings, or just a special visit?
Your visit can be either in the day or evening and State Officers are happy to show you around The Club and Mary Walker House.
The Handicraft Committee will open the Handicraft Centre, so you can see the scope of all handicraft supplies that are available to you as members. Our prices are cheaper than the larger known craft suppliers!
Just let us know dates and times and we will try to accommodate..
