The Art of Needlework : Bundanoon Exhibition

Bundanoon  is having a Birthday! 
Gazetted 150 years ago, the town has current locals working very hard to provide activities that help celebrate  the history and heritage of this town - originally an area that provided a meeting place for the Wadi-Wadi and Gandagara peoples. 
Bundanoon is approximately 140km south west of Sydney : just 90 minutes of driving time.

One of the highlights of the Bundanoon Celebration Calendar will be a needlecraft exhibition  that pays homage to the creativity of residents since 1865.

Advertised as "The Art of Needlework : Past and Present" this historic display has been curated by the members of 'Needles and Natter' a social needlecraft group, in collaboration with The Southern Highland Quilters Guild, the CWA, and local patchwork and machine sewing groups.

Sponsored by the Bundanoon Community Association, this exhibition will showcase current needlework, historic Wedding Gowns, Christening Gowns, and other handmade apparel and useful domestic items, such as tablecloths etc.
There will be a Sales Area, where the offloaded stash from other sewers can be purchased.

So, with only a few weeks to go, please diarise this event and support the needleworkers of The Southern Highlands.
