Craft Show brings out the wack side in all of us

More than 80 quilts will be on display at the Wambangalang Environmental Education Centre (EEC) on October 11 and 12.

Craft stalls will also be present on the day, including a painter from Newcastle, hats and jewellery from Tullamore and a Jenome machine display.

Attendees will be able to win one of 20 cushions in the cushion raffle, as well as Echidna sewing products in the main raffle and a lucky gate prize.

The $8 entry fee encompasses a Devonshire tea with scones freshly made to order and real China dinnerware.

Faye McLellan said the Wambangalang Wacky Women had been sewing out of the Wambangalang EEC for 18 years, so all proceeds from the day would go back to the centre.

The 12 members of the group get together every second full weekend of the month.

“We have lots of fun. We sew and we talk,” Ms McLellan said.

The Wambangalang EEC where the event will be held is located 32 kilometres south of Dubbo on the Obley Road.

The show will run from 10am to 5pm on the Saturday and 10am to 4pm on the Sunday.
