One of the great events when living in a small Australian country town is the annual Agricultural Show ( dyreskue in Danish )
In my country town The Glen Innes Show Society has been run by a large group of dedicated volunteers since 1869. It’s a unique country Australian experience enjoyed by both us who live here and many visitors. I tend to ‘drag’ my overseas guests along to The Show and this year will be no different. It is also the time where many ‘ex-pats’ comes home for a weekend of joy and fun.
If you are not participating in any of the many competitions ( because that’s really what it is all about ) you can just enjoy the displays and shows – or like I – set up stall and ‘show off your stuff’ that way.
This year I will have a stall at The Gourmet Fiesta tent – a venue in its 10th year running focusing on cooking, wine and dine. Not that I’m a cook nor a winemaker, – but I do like to decorate a dinner table.
My stall will be displaying mainly handmade table decorations, cards and invites as well as beautiful handcrafted books for recipes and planning. This is very different from what I normally create, but I am enjoying the change so much, I even got my old sewing machine out – finally finding use for the stacks of fabric collected over the years.
The Glen Innes Show kicks off on Friday 14th February and The Gourmet Fiesta Tent is open Friday and Saturday.
Until next time ….
