The Presbyterian churches of Seymour, Nagambie and Yea launched the Seymour Women’s Shed in June last year, and since then, a steady flow of women are making it a regular Wednesday activity on their calendar.
They are enjoying their own space, where they can do an art or craft project, patchwork, chair aerobics, scrapbook, knit, have a chat, do a jigsaw or pass on skills and knowledge.
They have been enjoying the friendship and warm welcome and the hearty soup lunches provided by the ladies of the Women’s Shed committee.
The shed will celebrate its first birthday with a bring and share lunch on May 31, when ladies who have attended over the past year are invited to attend.
If any woman is interested in attending the Wednesday sessions of the Women’s Shed, all you need to do is turn up at St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church hall on Wednesdays between 9am and 2pm, and sign in.
Coming up in the next few months are mosaic lessons, chair aerobics, fondue making, craft work, rug making out of rags, painting pegs, dog grooming and decoupage.
Go along and join in some fun and relaxation and see what is on offer among district womenfolk.
You need to bring lunch along, however free tea and coffee is available.
