This exhibition features embroidery, tatting and crochet produced by the women of Ballina Shire in the 19th and 20th centuries. You would be wrong if you thought these women watched TV or were on the computer in their free time! During quiet times on the farm or in the evening, the women would gather in family or informal social groups and, while talking, they stitched. Their work was not only worked into fancy pieces but also used to make and repair household items, and it was then exhibited at church and school events and the agricultural shows. At these shows the stitched items were placed in a competitive environment and there was a certain prestige attained when they were awarded a prize card. So visit us and see both items and tools from the Crawford House collection.
