CRAFTY: Joan Wilson said she just sat back and ate chocolate for most of the weekend, but after raising nine kids she certainly deserved the break. From Saturday until Monday around 20 women from Biloela, Gin Gin, Bancroft, Bilbunda and Monto came together for the Calico Girly Night In, three days of solid arts and craft making. “It’s a lovely break from husbands and housework,” quilter Rhonda Dudarko said. The dedicated crafters didn’t mind roughing it for theweekend and slept in tents, caravans and even the backs of cars for the two nights. “I get much more of a sore back from stitching all weekend than from sleeping in the caravan,” Lyn Taylor said. The Monto proceeds went to Bluecare, and gave an excellent chance for the our local ladies to take some well-deserved time for themselves.
Peney Honey and Lyn Taylor said having an entire weekend to devote to craft making was like a holiday.
