Queensland – Sunshine Coast Rug Crafters


Raffle_Rugs_Beerwah_Library_QLD_AustThe Sunshine Coast Rug Crafters raised over    $700 in support of the

“Friends of the Beerwah Library” with their original triptych of “Under the Sea”.

 The three pieces were won by people on Bribie Island, Glass House Mountains and Beerwah so the “word” is beginning to spread across the Sunshine Coast.


 Over 25 people attended the brief talk and Q & A session offered by Judi Tompkins and the members of the Sunshine Coast Rug Crafters and there was a great interest in the craft with questions about “How do you do it?” and “How can I learn?” ……. as a result we have 10 new members who want to join the group which means the July sessions will be very busy.

Annette from NSW has relocated to QLD and joined the Sunshine Coast Rug Crafters – her Three Wise Men were on display at the Library. Shown here is a close-up of the hanging system she used for this piece.

The Sunshine Coast Rug Crafters groups meet the second Monday and third Tuesday of each month from 3-6pm at the Beerwah Library.

As a community group there is no fee to attend; afternoon tea is available.
