Textile Artists who are inspired by the wagga

Quilting and Collecting: Hommage to the Wagga Cynthia Harvey Baker, Katanning, Western Australia
Cynthia Harvey Baker contacted us to tell us about her exhibition in Western Australian that also takes it's inspiration from the wagga. She tells us that her exhibition will be on from July 4 - 16. This exhibition includes 9 old waggas she has collected and are the inspiration for her works. It looks like a terrific display and a couple of us were tempted to go but its on at the same time as ours and we are otherwise occupied...

CWA Cotton Australia Environmental Awards 2008 winner Lynette Trupp
During our talk at Parliament House we met Lynette Trupp who won the 2008 CWA award from 33 entrants. She also gained a highly commended for another work.  A great quilt made from suitably worn soft checked shirts.  A most deserving winner.
