|Chris Noorbergen and Joy Marshall's rugs|
The inaugural meeting of the ‘First Saturday Ruggers’ group (name still to be decided on) met on Saturday, 4th May 2013, hosted by Joy Marshall at her home in Lilydale, Victoria , Australia. Lots of getting to know one another as well as seeing wonderful rugs and works in progress. Morning tea, and a luncheon spread (including Miriam’s scones brought by Chris and some gorgeous soups supplied by Joy) to rival any well established group. An enjoyable day was had by all with lots of plans for the further promotion of our rug hooking art/craft group.
The next gathering will be at Anne Schafer’s home in Warrandyte, Victoria on Saturday 1st June. Please email us if you're interested. Everyone's welcome, from the experienced, to beginners or the curious.
