During the Wrapped in St Marys weekend, several exhibitions appeard in various venues around the town.
Barbara Mellor, a textile artist from the local Break O’Day municipality, specialises in using Asian fabrics, including Japanese antique kimono and obi. She also incorporates other materials, such as Cambodian woven fabric and Indian sari fabric.
Here is a slideshow of her wonderful quilts and cushions, showcased at Gone Rustic Studio & Gallery. To view any item in a larger format, first click pause, then right click on the photo and select view –
The second highlight event for Wrapped in St Marys was the car show.
This is held every year on the first Sunday in June by the St. Marys Cranks and Tinkerers. Despite the rain, Faulkner’s Green in the town centre was full of classic and/or unique cars, driven by enthusiasts from the local area and across the state.
Michael Rowlings of Herrick was the winner of a cheque* and other goodies; all the visiting drivers also received a show bag of car-related items which had been donated by a number of organisations and individuals.
Many thanks to all who had a part to play in making this 6th annual car show a success, including the Break O’Day Woodcraft Guild for providing public liability insurance.
Here’s a slideshow of some of the highlights:
