Canberra Spinners and Weavers celebrate 50 years: Our 2017 exhibitions at CMAG and TAC are fast approaching. Meredith Hinchliffe has been very busy visiting our various interest groups in order to discuss what members are working on for the exhibition. The opening of the CMAG exhibition (Canberra Museum and Gallery) by Janet De Boer will be Saturday afternoon 28th October. We will be opening with an afternoon tea. Our Members exhibition will also be opened by Janet De Boer on Thursday the 2nd November at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre (the exhibition continues until 26th November). During the exhibition at Tuggeranong we will be holding a 3 day opening at our Chifley rooms (Nov 23, 24, 25) for members to display and sell their work. This event will coincide with the Canberra Design Festival.
