Ge­or­gia has the com­pe­ti­tion all stitched up

Central and North Burnett Times - - GAYNDAH SHOW -

TINY pieces of fab­ric have come to­gether to cre­ate beau­ti­ful craft and earned Ge­or­gia Laidler first place.

Ge­or­gia, 12, en­ters in the Gayn­dah Show craft and culi­nary sec­tion ev­ery year and came first with her pen­cil case cre­ation in the patch­work cat­e­gory.

Ge­or­gia sub­mit­ted 11 en­tries this year and was in­spired to get into craft by her grand­mother, Irene Law.

Ms Law is an ac­com­plished craftswoman who came first in framed em­broi­dery at this year’s show.

“I like us­ing the sewing ma­chine and my grandma taught me how to do it all,” Ge­or­gia said. “It’s en­ter­tain­ing.” Ge­or­gia has her eye on next year’s com­pe­ti­tion where she will ex­pand her craft reper­toire to in­clude cross stitch.
