Chil­dren learn crafty Christ­mas skills

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - REAL ESTATE -

With the count­down un­til the fes­tive sea­son be­gins now un­der­way, lo­cal young­sters got into the hol­i­day spirit by cre­at­ing spe­cial Christ­mas crafts at a school hol­i­day pro­gram on Wed­nes­day.

Hosted by De­niliquin’s Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion Boo­book branch, ten chil­dren at­tended and learned to make cal­ico bags, Christ­mas stock­ings and tree dec­o­ra­tions.

De­niliquin CWA Boo­book pres­i­dent Lyn Rose said the work­shops help pro­vide valu­able life-skills for younger gen­er­a­tions.

‘‘We hold these hol­i­day pro­grams to teach chil­dren crafts that might fade away if we don't pass on the knowl­edge, such as sewing,’’ she said.

‘‘The kids al­ways en­joy learn­ing new skills.’’

The CWA is now fo­cused on host­ing its an­nual flower show, on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21.

To be held at the Multi Arts Cen­tre in Cressy St, De­niliquin, the show will fea­ture el­e­gant flower ar­range­ments, raf­fles and a morn­ing tea, and is avail­able for pub­lic view­ing from 10am.
