Members of the Ceduna, Wirrulla and Streaky Bay Country Women’s Association (CWA) branches met in Ceduna on September 12 for the annual Far Western Group Arts and Crafts Day.
The day was opened this year by Francois Pienaar, the principal of Crossways Lutheran School in Ceduna.
He gave an interesting PowerPoint presentation showing his family and life in South Africa.
The decision to move to South Australia was not easy but after 11 years they are well settled.
The presentation concluded with a piece on his school and he was thanked by the acting president Margaret Watson.
Three interesting tables were on display as well as eight chairs with three articles of individual members’ work.
Handicraft officer Elaine Kloock is in Ceduna Hospital recovering from knee surgery so Doreen Denton kindly acted in her place and announced the winners of the day.
The Wirrulla branch was first with Streaky Bay second and Ceduna third.
The most outstanding handicraft was was Prue Cook’s pulled fabric cloth.
Joyce Chandler’s arrangement of foliage and succulents was outstanding as was Kath Dunn’s cookery.
Pauline Nielsen won the articles on a chair with her photography with Mary Fox second.
The Far West Group is considering a different format for arts and crafts days, branches will discuss any ideas in a meeting early next year.
