running on …

… fuel, of course!!

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:

textile art on the power poles

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 …

To view, just click on the thumbnails to enlarge.

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

the amazing ashton in action

Juggling in the rain wasn’t really an option, so The Amazing Ashton strutted his stuff in the St. Marys Town Hall.

Here he is in action, using a variety of ‘tools’, including plastic bags stuffed with newspaper (these are safer to practice with than knives); some of his ‘students’ were also caught on camera –

church all wrapped up

Not only the power poles were wrapped during the weekend of 2 and 3 June – the Anglican Church in the main street was wrapped in a giant ribbon and bow, made from sheets!

Here are some photos, taken by Carole Withers –

 

 

Great to see the church community getting into the ‘Spirit’ of things!  =D
