Best work on show

The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Hay­den Thom­son

Seven Coun­try Women As­so­ci­a­tion branches gath­ered in Tatura dur­ing the week­end for their an­nual Cre­ative Arts Ex­hi­bi­tion.

The Goul­burn Val­leyWest groups pit­ted their best em­broi­der­ers, artists, cro­cheters, pho­tog­ra­phers, cooks, sew­ers, knit­ters and hor­ti­cul­tur­al­ists against one an­other to see who would end up on top.

‘‘We had a steady flow of on­look­ers over the week­end. . . (the event was) a chance to show off some of our tal­ented mem­bers,’’ GV West CWA group pres­i­dent Lyn Trezise said.

On dis­play at the event was close to 60 bed cov­ers, which have been quilted to­gether by a num­ber of branch mem­bers for the Kyabram nurs­ing home.

‘‘Jean Miles was the main lady to bring all the branches to­gether to pro­vide all the fab­ric,’’ Ms Trezise said.

Ms Trezise said like last year, the Devon­shire tea was a big hit.

This year was also the first time the ex­hi­bi­tion al­lowed peo­ple to buy goods on show.
