We meet on the third Saturday of each month** (except December) from 10am to 4pm at Box Hill Village Hall.

Throughout the year about half of the meetings are dedicated to workshops covering the crafts that interest us. Usually the March meeting includes our AGM, our open day is in October, and there is no meeting in December. ** Note that in 2017, the April meeting is on the fourth Saturday to avoid the Easter weekend, and there is an extra date for a workshop on the 4th Saturday in February (25th).
