Lioness craft expo a hit
The 14th biennial Craft Expo run by the Yarrawonga Lioness Club was successfully held on Saturday, April 21 with many visitors making their way through the doors.
The 2018 expo was held at Club Mulwala due to the Yarrawonga Town Hall currently being renovated but the event adapted very well to the large auditorium with almost 200 people visiting and being treated to a fascinating display of a large variety of crafts.
Cr Peter Mansfield officially opened the Craft Expo during the morning and congratulated the hardworking Lioness Club for putting on a magnificent event while also referring to the many charities that benefit from the Lioness Club’s work.
Many items were on display with some of those presented including hand weaving, wood turning, lace making, knitting, crocheting, wooden flowers, teddies, patchwork and decorated eggs.
A number of stallholders were also on hand to demonstrate their skills in creating their works.
A particularly popular stall was the doll doctor who was kept busy repairing treasured dolls, some of which had been owned by families for many years.
The Yarrawonga Lioness Club is pleased with how the show went as well as the stallholders.
The visitor’s comments book was filled with appreciative comments from people who were impressed with the display.
The proceeds from the Craft Expo will go to health services in the local area.
