HAVE YOUR SAY  Here’s a chance for all of us interested in the arts to say we really want overt support for the arts in this very arts oriented municipality where Stitching and Beyond was born. Sadly the new arts hub provides no workshop space, only space for exhibitions and meetings. Opportunity to HAVE YOUR SAY closes on 3 June!
