This group was established in 1996 in preparation for the Estonian Culture Days (Eesti Päevad) held in Adelaide in December 1997.The group met in Mare Puksand's home.

Our aim is to foster traditional Estonian handcrafts, also art and craft in general, and to enjoy each other's companionship and to learn Estonian heritage craft from one another.

Meetings. Presently , we meet on the second Monday of each month at 9.30 a.m. in the upper hall of the Estonian House. New members are most welcome.

The next Estonian Culture Days (Eesti Päevad) will be held in Adelaide in December 2003 and we are gearing our work towards that.
