- fab views etc, then return through the bush on a different track. This is about
3.5 hours return.

Stitch and Butch
A group of fun supportive queer folk who enjoy being crafty with yarn (while
yarning craftily). Their creations adorn bike stands and bollards around the CBD and
they are always preparing for their next splash of colour to brighten our city.
They meet Mondays, 6-8 pm at at St Andrews on the Terrace in the Rainbow Room on the second floor. Cost – koha.
Bring along your own project – their knowledge can solve many problems, or contribute
to their collective work. Or come just for some friendly company and a cup of tea (sometimes
there is even cake!)
They welcome donations of wool, yarn or thread. And they can find ways to recycle clothes and kitchen excess when you de-clutter. ... check their facebook page.
