NSW Social Days
Social Days are much less structured than Branch Meeting Days and don't always follow exactly the same format. There are common elements to most Social Days (listed below under 'Format'). The main aim of a Social Day is for you to meet other members and textile lovers and have a fun day together.
No need to stay all day – come for as much of the day as you are able – we would love to see you there.

Social Day Format
The standard Social Day format is as follows:
Library: The Library is open for members to browse, borrow and return books throughout the day.
Swap or Sell your Stash! Some members choose to bring along items from their stash to sell at very reasonable costs, or even to give to other members who can make good use of them. It is always a bit of a mystery to see what may turn up!
Focussed Activity: Most Social Days have some form of short 'focus', such as demonstrations of specific techniques or skills by members, or the opportunity to try out a new skill. We also have working bees before exhibitions and for specific projects. Involvement in these activities is optional. If there is an activity like this planned, it will probably start at 11:00am.
Show & Tell: Members are encouraged to bring items from ATASDA workshops, or any other pieces they would like to show other members. ‘Works in progress’ are welcome, as well as finished pieces – we love to see what you have been up to, and catch a bit of that "contagious creativity".
Time to chat and just do your own thing: Remember to bring along something you are currently working on.
Opportunity to sign up for Workshops and Textile Tasters
Morning Tea – Lunch – Afternoon Tea: You may help yourself to as many cups of tea and coffee as you want, but please remember to bring your own mug and lunch. Please feel free to contribute extra food on the table to share – always acceptable and always appreciated.
