South Peninsula Handcraft Club Exhibition

The South Peninsula Handcraft Club Exhibition is on until Saturday 25 May. The work is beautifully set out and there is lots to see - quilts, embroidery, soft toys, beading and more. Its well worth going down to the Civic Centre in Fish Hoek to see the display.


The backdrop on the stage where the toys are was specially painted for the exhibition and gives a really festive air.


The Christmas corner is charming.
 
 
And do count the mice and drop your entry in Santa's postbox. Something that I forgot to do in all the excitement!
 
 
There is all sorts of embroidery to see. I could have spent ages here admiring the fine work- pulled work, drawn thread, hardanger, ribbon embroidery, cross stitch and more.
 

 
 
 
As you walk in you can't miss the cheerful collection of shopping bags up on either side of the stage. Why shopping bags? Club members were each given a shopping bag and challenged to decorate it.
 
 
This is just a small sprinkling of what there is to see, but it does give some idea of the variety of crafts on show. If you can't get to Fish Hoek to see the show you can find the SPHC Club on Facebook. Click on the photo link on their page and you will find some of the individual items that are on the exhibition as well as photos of previous exhibitions.
