Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone.

Here’s to a wonderful new year for everyone.  We have much to look forward to in the upcoming year. Please look to the Newsletter for dates.

Personally I have had my hands full. My back surgery and my husbands triple bypass surgery has slowed me down considerably but this soon will all be a distant memory. Please contact the club with your questions. I will be back on board in approximately a month and a half. Please do not hesitate to ring myself, Steve (our president) or leave a message at the club. Thank you all for your get well wishes. It has made a big difference knowing you care.

yours, Kathy

Knot website

Many of our jewellry projects need a good source for knots, so here  is one

The comments have been turned on . My helper had good intentions of keeping the ads/spam  out of our site so it was turned off but I will give it a try again. You click on the comments on your screen and your should have a window to write what you wish. Then it comes to me and I say” Hey you are not spam “so it then goes on the web site. Alternatively, you can email me at our old email address and I can place your asvertisememt for your work or your used equipment asap. thanks for all you aupport, Kathy

Catching Up

Hi everyone. I still am having lots of trouble getting my back sorted it out- it all is pretty private business but that does not mean I have given up on being a member of the best Lapidary Club in Australia. I miss everyone.

We are having a few teething pains with the website and transferring the newsletter but that should be resolved almost immediatly.


There are two emails, You still can contact me on the hotmail email: – this will get you contacat with me directly and will be good if you wish to advertise on the website.

The new bigpond email (listed in the previous post) will send your letter to the club house.

We are all looking for good things to happen in the next couple of years. Any suggestions will be passed on immediatly to Steve our new president.

Our monthly jewelry lessons have been given by some of our most talented people so please do not think things have stopped because of my back trouble… I am working on things as much as possible but we have some very capable people here

. -Best Wishes to all of you, Kathy
