Saturday 5 October will see our branch host an exhibition called “Handmade”. There will be displays of handmade articles which have been supplied by CWA members both present and past. Some of the items from the past show painstaking workmanship. Some ladies have been coerced into displaying work which went on to state level and hasn’t been seen for some years.
This event will coincide with The Hanging of the Quilts, and our catering team will be providing devonshire tea. The venue and further details of this event will be published when available.
In the meantime, for a moment of nostalgia, these photos show a similar handicraft exhibition held by the branch 20 years ago. The purpose of this exhibition was to choose some pieces to take to Orange for the Group Handicraft Competition. The day was ‘very big and very competitive’, according to members who remember!
