Our beginnings...

2022 – still looking for our permanent home BUT watch this space!

2019 – we are now looking for a permanent home for the Noosa Women’s Shed.

2018 – Noosa Women’s Shed elected its first management committee and became incorporated.

2017 – we ran a series of classes at U3A in Tewantin and were really thrilled at the uptake.  There were so many women who were interested in learning practical skills.  It was great fun.  Lots of learning occurred.
