Fab­ric art on dis­play

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By KA­T­RINA TANI­RAU mata­mata.edi­tor@wrcn.co.nz

One of Marion Cooper’s favourite hob­bies is sewing.

It was some­thing that she and her mother used to do to­gether and through­out the years Marion has cre­ated de­tailed works of fab­ric art, in­clud­ing her own wed­ding dress.

‘‘I’m not the kind of per­son who likes to just sit and watch tele­vi­sion. I have to be do­ing some­thing,’’ she said.

As a new mem­ber of the Mata­mata P’s & Q’s, Marion is look­ing for­ward to her ex­hibit­ing de­but at the group’s bi­en­nial ex­hi­bi­tion – The Mata­mata P’s & Q’s present: The Lan­guage of Flow­ers: The Bi­en­nial Ex­hi­bi­tion of Quilts, Fab­ric Art and much more.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will take place on Fri­day, May 24 and Satur­day, May 25 at the Me­mo­rial Cen­tre with the doors open­ing at 9.30am.

En­try is $5 with chil­dren un­der 12 free.

With more than 40 mem­bers in the P’s & Q’s there will be no short­age of beauty on dis­play.

A quilt Marion plans on ex­hibit­ing is one she made for one of her grand­daugh­ters.

Marion said it was re­ally worth go­ing along to have a look.

‘‘ It’s go­ing event.’’
