The Land Handicraft Competition
The State Handicraft Committee runs their annual competition to showcase the best work in a range of categories.
Ground rules and categories can be found in the Handicraft Schedule 2017-18. All instructions must be followed to a tee to be in the running for a prize.
Winners at Branch level go on to compete at Group level, and if you make it through that round, you go on to State Finals.
Group: Congratulations to Karen Ramrakah for her gorgeous, prizewinning shawl.
Labours of love
As part of our continued support to the community, we recently decorated calico bags for women who have received treatment at the Gynaecological Cancer Ward at the Royal Hospital for Women in Randwick.
Patients who receive treatment through the radiation oncology and outpatients departments are given a set of perspex vaginal dilators to prevent ongoing problems after radiotherapy. Currently the only option the ward has is to put them in paper bags as anything more is too expensive.
We hope the women like these bags and they help brighten each patient's day during this tough time.
