Tin Can Bay Craft Club is a Cooloola Coast success story

THIS IS one of the Cooloola Coast success stories.

In August, 1992, a group of ladies met with the view of forming a Tin Can Bay Craft Club.

It has proved a popular club and over the years has grown from the original 11 women to 120 members.

The first craft day was held in the old cricket pavilion which now houses The Little Guppies play group.

In the early years, two other venues were used but finally the Craft Club settled on the Cooloola Coast Community Complex.

The craft club is non-profit organisation which invests in the members by subsiding bus trips, craft materials and donating to the local community.

Next month, the club has made and donated a substantial amount of items to be sold at the annual Ambulance Flower Show held at the Community complex on Saturday, October 3.

All proceeds will go to supporting the local ambulance centre.

The club hosts a variety of workshops. In October the workshops will be Danish Hemstitch Dragon Fly Design, then Decoupage over two weeks.

On the last Thursday of each month there is a 'buy, swap and sell' morning.

Visitors are made very welcome and you will find the group each Thursday morning between 9am and noon at the Community Complex corner of Gympie Rd and Bayside Rd, Tin Can Bay.
