SSS&W is one of the oldest established associations in the Sutherland Shire. Their first formal meeting was in 1971 and they are a diverse and friendly group of creative people from many walks of life.

They are a friendly and creative group of spinners, loom and tapestry weavers, felters, dyers, crocheters and knitters.

They have one thing in common the love of fibre!

The members of the SSS&W are only too happy to share their knowledge and skills to a wider community.

Our work features an amazing variety of fibre craft/artworks, including woollen, silk, cotton, alpaca, soya, bamboo, cashmere and mohair creations, to name a few!

Some of the members spin from their own home-grown fleece to create wonderful garments and projects. Others share their love of knitting, crocheting, dyeing and weaving.

So, if you would like to look at the magnificent creations that the members have put together for the 50th Anniversary Exhibition, you need to hop on down to the Como School of Arts situated in the Peisly Community Centre at 15-17 Novara Crescent Como. It's only 10-minutes from the Como train station.

So much time and effort was put into this creation. Image courtesy of the SSS&W.

On Saturday the 13th of April, there will be a Hop aboard the Sydney Bus Museum's Heritage Bus. There will be a regular trip from the Sutherland School of Arts at 25 East Parade Sutherland. The bus will take you to and from the exhibition.

Admission is free and there will refreshments available at the venue.

The Citizens Heritage Festival is proudly sponsored by Sutherland Shire Council and the National Trust.
