A CRAFTY AID FOR OUR FARMERS

As I think most of us are aware, many Australian farmers are facing one of the most significant droughts in memory and along with that, are selling off stock, going without the basics and in some instances, walking away from the property which has been in their family for decades.

This situation has prompted members of many communities to raise funds which can then be used to provide some relief to our country cousins and this includes local organisations, one of which is the Ningi based Crafty Shed. The Crafty Shed was founded twelve years ago and is home to a variety of groups, the most pro-active being the quilting group, Pumicestone Piecers. There also the Crafter Critters who practice card making, embroidery and crocheting and there is also some who are accomplished artists.

As a contribution to the Farm aid appeal, Crafty Shed President Beryl Higgins recently presented a $2,000 cheque to the Lions Club of Sandstone Point and that money will go directly to those who need it. Eager to contribute more to the appeal, Crafty Shed Vice-President Stephanie Domagala, an artist of some note, has donate a painting which will be raffled at the end of October and she told me that anyone who would like a few tickets in the raffle can either call in to the Crafty Shed or give her a call on 5497 5013.

Stephanie also mentioned that the organisation which has about eighty members at present is always keen to welcome new members anyone interested can give her a call to find out more.
