The NCEATA Travelling Suitcase Exhibition has been going for over thirty years, so it is fair to say that it is a very successful and popular exhibition. To find out more about the Newcastle Creative Embroiderers and Textile Artists group then please click here.
Due to their popularity our dates have been put off a little bit, so they won't be arriving quite as early as expected, so please keep an eye on our calendar for their expected arrival.
See below for a little example of their creativity.
Although bookings started off slow, we ended up with 29 people to this showing of The Boss Baby. And what a funny movie. Ideal for the children, and also some humour in there for the adults.
Dianne provided hot dogs, macaroni cheese, chicken caesar salad and for dessert there was popcorn (of course), jelly and custard cups, and chocolate slice. So thank you Dianne.
All up it was a very good night, with everyone enjoying themselves. Thank you to everyone who attended. Without you all, there are no movie nights.
If anyone missed it, and would like to borrow the movie, then please contact Colleen via the two eight two eight email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.

And what a wedding it was. The ceremony took within a "crop circle" on the farm, and although all of the bridal party looked beautiful (yes, even the young men), Kirsten stole the show looking absolutely stunning in her designer gown.
Thank you to everyone who attended this month's Dinner and Movie Night, and what a wonderful evening.
Dianne Harland provided two delicious main meal choices of Beef and Guinness Pie and Grilled Chicken Breast with Honey Mustard sauce. Both dishes were served with mashed potato, beans, carrots and sauted brussel sprouts.
For dessert we had a choice of Sticky Date Pudding or Pavlova. There was not much conversation whilst we all sat and gobbled down our dinner. A truly lovely meal once again Dianne. Thank you.
The movie, "Hidden Figures", was one of the best movies many of us had seen for a very long time. It was captivating, thought provoking, inspiring and brilliantly acted. If you get an opportunity to watch this movie, then please, do yourself a favour and take it. Any Film Society members who wish to watch it, you may borrow it at any time.Our next movie night will be in early October.
Firstly, two eight two eight would like to thank our tireless volunteers who have given their time over the past nine years to help keep our local library open to the public. We not only appreciate your efforts, but know we could never have done it without you.
Secondly, we would like to congratulate the Gulargambone Rural Transaction Centre for securing the new three year contract, and wish them every success with the project.
But don't be saddened, the library will continue and you can always put your name down at the RTC to continue to volunteer your services.
Thank you Gulargambone for your support.
Grant Millgate, one of our 2015 to 2016 School Based Trainees from Gulargambone Central School, has achieved unbelievable success by being a Finalist at the NSW Western 2017 Training Awards. There are over 13000 students enrolled in the Western District of NSW and from this immense group 35 Finalists were selected from 6 categories. The NSW Training Awards are a fantastic celebration and source of recognition for the outstanding effort that thousands of individuals, employers and training organisations put into VET each year in NSW.
The Awards night was held at the Orange Services Club, with over 260 people present for the evening. We were served a lovely two course meal and everyone was enjoying themselves. There were many guest speakers, including last year's young winner, and the evening was run with style and panache. Grant's support team at the awards night included his mum, Leah Millgate, Alfrene, Liana Leigo and her fellow teacher Sara, Colleen and Paul Ower.
We congratulate Grant on his success, and applaud the support the school and his hospitality teacher, Liana Leigo, have given both Grant and two eight two eight.
Well done, Grant. You are always a winner in our eyes.
2. We will also still be running the library and are always looking for new volunteers to help keep this service at it's very best.
3. You can still hire our equipment - table, chairs, cutlery, glasses etc, just send us an email to email@example.com.
4. We will still be running Movie Nights. We will be holding movies every two months - so watch this space to see what will be coming to our screen.
