A STITCH IN TIME -
A Stitch in Time’ is in place and will run well into 2013. This features two major pieces from our collection - a 1920’s signature cloth made as a fund-raiser for the Presbyterian Church in Yackandandah, and a signature banner, made again as a fund-raiser, for the building of the Yackandandah Bush Nursing Hospital in 1929. Combined, there are about 400 local names.
A program for children involves making their own contribution to a new, Yackandandah Signature Cloth.
