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

What amazing talent we have in St. Marys and wider valleys area!

Thanks to Margit, we can enjoy the power pole wraps long after the event …

This wrap was made by the children, staff and parents from St. Marys Child Care

                 

The students in Ruth Miller’s class at St. Marys District Highschool made not 1, but 2 entries –

                  

Ree Smith of Upper Scamander used paint, stitch and collage, as well as text, to give a wonderful depth of meaning to her artwork –

                   

This entry, made from donated clothing and a lot of sewing, was created by the St. Marys School Association Op Shop

                   

Shelly Carin from Fingal made this vibrant and colourful creation –

                 

Judy Duckett paid tribute to our local police; note the detailed quilting on the white background, and how well the wrap co-ordinates with the sign –

                 

Stitchedupmama, with her handspun and crocheted entry, certainly wasn’t going to be left out –

                   

Nor was Liz Rice, with 2 pole wraps, both entirely handstitched –

                   

Or A-nonni-Mouse, whose entry celebrates Christmas all year round

                 

Rita Summers of St. Marys also had a go –

                 

As did A Rustic Ragamuffin
