Li­on­ess craft expo a hit

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

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.
