Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

DO YOU suf­fer from OCD, bet­ter known as Ob­ses­sive Christ­mas Dis­or­der?

Then La­pun­yah Art Gallery’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion, Christ­mas in July, is the place for you.

Chin­chilla Patches and Piece­mak­ers have re­turned with their unique spin on Christ­mas.

Lots of colour, shiny Christ­mas lights, warm and cud­dly quilts, and mer­chan­dise galore for the en­thu­si­as­tic col­lec­tor of Christ­mas mem­o­ra­bilia.

At their re­cent open­ing, guests were treated to a warm win­ter lunch of soup and savouries, with de­li­cious Christ­mas sweets fol­low­ing.

Santa also ar­rived and gave out special gifts and candy-canes for all the good lit­tle visi­tors to the gallery.

The Patches and Piece­mak­ers were formed 24 years ago by life mem­ber, and pre­vi­ous group leader, Glenys Gaske.

Sev­eral orig­i­nal mem­bers are still with the group and par­tic­i­pate in reg­u­lar in-house work­shops, tu­tor-run work­shops, re­treats and road tours.

Any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing the Patches and Piece­mak­ers, in form­ing great friend­ships, and be­ing cre­ative in a sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment can phone Terri-Ann on 0411 096 424.

Christ­mas In July will run from June 19 to July 19 at La­punayh Art Gallery, Chin­chilla. Dur­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion ev­ery vis­i­tor will also re­ceive a gift from Santa’s bas­ket.
