A stitch in time

EACH year at the Laidley Show the community begins to get the knitting needles working in a frenzy to showcase their creative side to the public, and 2011 will be no different.

Needlework steward, Ann Bichel, said she is expecting the same high standard of quality work in the section, despite the devastation of the January floods.

“We realise some of our exhibitors will not have had the time to spend preparing for this year's show,” Mrs Bichel said.

“Patchwork quilts and exquisite needlework will once again be the highlight of our show.

“Some of our exhibitors are Ekka prize-winners which shows the talent we have in our community.”

Ms Bichel said there are many different areas of craft, needlework and natural fibre classes that are covered in their schedule and the stewards are happy to include items which do not appear in the schedule.

“Our entries are taken on Wednesday, July 6 from 9:30am to 2pm, which will allow us time to get home to watch the State of Origin, with judging on Thursday, July 7.”

The needlework schedule is available on the Laidley Show website
