From the Maitland Mercury report:
The art of embroidery will become the focus of an exclusive silver anniversary exhibition opening next week.
The Maitland Embroiderers Club has put together a display of almost 300 pieces of their members’ work to mark the special occasion.
The group started with six women in 1987 and now has 180 members, which president Barbara Horn said was a sign that embroidery was a popular skill.
The exhibition will be held at the Therry Centre at East Maitland on Friday, September 7 between 10am and 8pm and on Saturday, September 8, between 10am and 4pm, with the official opening at 7pm on the Friday.
