All things crafty go on show at expo

HANDMADE with love, a collection of stunning and unique items as well as craft raw materials drew crowds to the 2015 Sew What's

Event co-ordinator Sandra Lynch said up to 1400 people made their way through the doors of the Civic Centre and Parish Hall across

Friday and Saturday to see what was on offer.

"Quilting, papercraft, painted rocks, crochet animals, handmade gifts - it's testing my memory too remember it all," she said.

"Local woman Anna Fiser's Recycled Scentsations candles were very popular.

"She makes scented candles in recycled crystal glasses, mugs and cups. The smell when you walked into the Parish Hall was divine."

Mrs Lynch said Bundaberg woman Tammy Ward's hand-painted rocks were also a hit.

"They are great gift ideas for anyone, especially kids," she said.

"Dragons, cats, anything you can think of are hand pained on to rocks. The cats look just like real cats curled up."

Mrs Lynch said every one of the 43 exhibitors, many who travelled from across the state, brought something unique.

"When something is hand made you're not going to end up with the same thing as everyone else like you do when it comes from a shop," she said.

"And generally handmade lasts longer too."
