New workshops

22 June 2013
I finished arranging dates for the last four workshops yesterday and want to tell you about them straight away. I'm really excited about meeting more people who read my blog and although it means long drives, it's so worth it. I'll remember the Blackheath weekend with Tricia and our wonderful groups for a long time. Hanno will be my helping hand at these workshops and we'll be joined at one of the venues by Chantel, who I met at Blackheath. We'll be at Lismore, Samford, Mudgee and Long Jetty.

I want to support the ladies at the CWA in the various towns we'll be visiting so all the workshops will be at a CWA hall or rooms. I've asked each of the branches to cater for our lunches on both days as well. The CWA are an important part of many rural towns in Australia and I will support them whenever I can. 

The dates and times are:
10 and 11 August, from 9.30am - 3.30pm
CWA Rooms
Molesworth St
Lismore NSW

17 and 18 August, from 9.30am - 3.30pm
CWA Hall 
Main Street
Samford Qld

14 and 15 September, from 9.30am - 3.30pm
CWA Rooms
48 Market St
Mudgee NSW

12 and 13 October, from 9.30am - 3.30pm
CWA Rooms 
1 Pacific St 
Long Jetty NSW

I'll be able to take bookings from 15 people on each day. I want to keep the groups small so we all have a chance to get to know each other and to have decent discussions as we sit together around our table. Our topics will include simple life, budgeting, cleaning, housework and routines, home production of laundry liquid, soap, jams and sauces and there'll be a demonstration of how to make laundry liquid. We'll also have a knitting session for those who want to learn how to knit. There'll be continuous tea and coffee throughout the day and lunch will be served.  The cost is $195 each which includes everything.
