Royal Easter Show in Sydney April 2011
This year the Guild displayed for the last 2 days of the Show. We set up on the first day and pulled down in the evening of the 2nd day, such a nice change for us. We'd collected some Group banners and display material from the Guild earlier in the week, ready to arrive bright and early to set up the display on the appointed day. Our stand received many visitors as we were located near the side entrance to the Arts Pavilion where people go in and out to get food and also to visit the Show Bag Pavilion.
On the last day we offered a rolling mini-workshop with a little Dotee Easter Bunny ornament. About 10 bunnies were made thanks to Alana and her son Terry who spoke to lots of children passing by and asked them to join him to make one too. Lots of the kids had never stitched before and we were really pleased they got the chance to try a new skill, and perhaps we'll get some new members too.
