We gather together on the lands of the traditional custodians, the Wurundjeri and Woi Wurrung people. We pay our respects to all of Melbourne’s First Peoples, to their ancestors and Elders, and to our shared future together.


Our Sunday 6 August Hawthorn Makers Market was successful- notwithstanding cool and overcast conditions and three last minute stallholder cancellations which reduced our outdoor presence. We now look forward to 'Spring' with our next Market on Sunday, 3rd September from 10am-3pm at the heritage Hawthorn Arts Centre. Around 450 attended the August Market  which was up on the previous month. Many were 1st timers which is encouraging. It was also nice to introduce new stallholder 'Jude' who offered a large range of gender neutral clothing. (see pic).  In fact, all stallholders offered an impressive and varied range of handcrafted products - from children's toys to crafted writing implements...and more. (see pics).
Margaret has Workshop in a spin!
We also held our 3rd 'How To Do It' Workshop at the August Makers Market- this time featuring Margaret from regular stallholders, the Yarn Spinners. Visitors were shown how 100% aussie wool is spun by an expert on her spinning wheel (see pic) and taken through to the finished garment. It attracted a devoted group visitors  (see pic) with our Yvonne Wills introducing the segment and and participating guests. Thanks Yvonne. We thank all Volunteers for their support for what is a significant Club event and contributor to the Club's charitable activities.

Camberwell Rotary ( Youth ) provided some funds to help disadvantaged kids at Camberwell High School - this is one of two thank you cards and letters that arrived back at the Club.
It is great to get these messages from the heart and to know we are making a difference in our local community.
