Crafty CWA pop up shop has presents sorted
THE joy of going to a CWA craft shop is not only is everything handmade, the talent and ideas go way beyond a tea cosy or beanie.
Barbara Shaw is one of the volunteers who help run the Casino Country Craft pop-up shop in Walker St.
For 32 years the CWA has managed to display its craft in the CBD of Casino due to the efforts of their late and much-loved president Barbara Reynolds.
Her drive and determination took the group from strength to strength and her death four years ago gave members the impetus to keep the group going in her memory.
In the shop, one of the popular items was the Frozen quilt sewn by Lorraine Osmond.
Many of her quilts hang in the shop and feature exquisite patterns.
There are scarves, fluffy bed socks, cards, sewing tidies, peg bags, bird houses, metal animal sculptures, rugs, knitted toys and scented chicken insect deterrents.
All profits from the craft shop go towards a reduced rent and five charities supported by the CWA.
