Support Woolcraft

The Woolcraft section of the Australian Sheep and Wool Show is held annually to provide an avenue for craftspeople to exhibit and demonstrate their craft.

The Woolcraft Competition would not exist if it wasn’t for the volunteers who serve on the committee and those who volunteer their time as stewards, etc. throughout the show. The committee members, who come from all over Victoria, give freely of their time, not only for the 10 days duration; setting up, staging and dismantling the show, but also for meetings held in Melbourne during the year.

In the current schedule some classes are already sponsored, which is valued by the committee. However, further sponsorship is required and if you are able to contribute, any donation would be appreciated.

Please send donations to:

Mr. Andrew Ternouth, Secretary ASBA
P.O. Box 219
Bendigo, VIC 3552
