Neighbour day celebration at Gympie Bone Museum 9 April 2022

Hello Neighbour!

Are you new to Gympie? An empty nester? Experienced a relationship breakdown? Or just wanting to get back to an old love for crafting?

Come and try Neighbour Day Celebration on 9 April

Join us on Saturday 9 April 10am-2pm for a day of making and creating with fibre and fibre artists out under the trees at Gympie Bone Museum. This will be a come and try day for fibre dyeing, knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving and fibre art for anyone looking for like-minded people to connect with.

The fibre arts are very meditative and offer many mental health benefits. It’s a hobby that you can enjoy solo or with a group that doesn’t take much special equipment or money to get started. We’ll also have guided relaxation under the trees with Ros Melmeth.

We will have the Baltic Mini Textiles exhibition – an international exhibition of fibre art – and pieces by local fibre artists on display for you to use for inspiration.Hands on help and friendly faces will be there from Gympie CWA, Gympie Spinners Weavers & Crafters, Little Shop for Yarners and Gympie Bone Museum.

Good conversation, good food and good people

We’re aiming for a relaxing day of good conversation, good food and good people. No expectations and no expensive classes to sign up for. Bring a camp chair or picnic rug, bring your work in process if you have one, bring a friend or be ready to make some new ones. We’re all looking forward to getting to know you!

Gympie Bone Museum couldn’t put on days like this without the help of our sponsors and supporters. The Baltic Mini Textiles exhibition is sponsored by Little Shop for Yarners. Cakes will be supplied by Gympie CWA & lunch by Bull’s Eye Food Truck. Additional sponsorship has been given by Bunnings Gympie. The Neighbour Day celebration project received assistance from the Gympie Regional Council Community Development Grants Program.

Help celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Neighbour Day and build the community you want to live in.
