A steady flow of people enjoyed a Creative Arts Exhibition at Victory Hall, Tatura on the weekend.

Working hard: Katherine Wagner, 12, Klara Fennell, 12, and Charlette Gray, 12 selling cupakes at the event.

Official stewards: Mandy Perkins, Shirley Harrison and Melvie Darby at the exhibition on Sunday.

Members from seven Country Women Association branches gathered in Tatura on the weekend for the annual Creative Arts Exhibition.

The Goulburn Valley West groups pitted their best embroiders, artists, crocheters, photographers, cooks, sewers, knitters and horticulturalists against one another to see who would end up on top.

‘‘We had a steady flow of onlookers over the weekend ... (the event was) a chance to show off some of our talented members,’’ GV West CWA group president Lyn Trezise said.

On display was close to 60 bed covers, which have been quilted together by a number of branch members for the Kyabram nursing home.

‘‘Jean Miles was the main lady to bring all the branches together to provide all the fabric,’’ Ms Trezise said.

Ms Trezise said like last year, the Devonshire tea was a big hit.

This year was also the first time the exhibition allowed people to buy items.

Anyone interested in joining a CWA branch can contact Lyn Trezise on 0409956189.
