$700 raised by the Myall Art and Craft Centres’ Christmas Raffle is heading to the Country’s Women’s Association.
“Our lovely Christmas hamper is put together every year by member Annette Naylor,” Janette Coppock told News Of The Area.

The raffle was won by a very happy Peter Webb.

“The Committee would like to thank all members and members of the community who purchased tickets, it was a great response,” Janette said.

And just a reminder, that the Centre is celebrating its 25th anniversary of the Art Group with an Art and Craft Show, being held over three days from Friday 11 January through to Sunday 13 January.

A group of very keen and talented artists come together every Monday from 9am to 12 at the Craft Centre.

“They always welcome new members to their group, and offer encouragement and advice to those who have always wanted to learn, but haven’t had the opportunity,” Janette said.

“The fun, laughter and friendships formed are a bonus!”

“Annual membership of the Craft Centre is $50, which gives you access to all of the Craft groups held at the Centre.”

Janette added, “At a cost of $5 for your first class of the week, say the Art group on a Monday, you can then attend a different group each day, at no extra cost.”

“It could be spinning and weaving or wood turning on Tuesday; sewing or picture framing on Wednesday, leather work or braided rug making on Thursday; printmaking or mosaics on Friday, to name just a few.”

The Myall Art and Craft Centre is located behind the Visitors Information Centre, at the Singing Bridge end of Myall Street in Tea Gardens.
