The Country Women’s Association was first formed in 1922 out of a need to assist women and their children in rural areas – the tireless fundraising continues this Sunday, 5th May, as the Stanwell Park Village Market hands the reigns back to the ladies from the CWA for their annual Mothers Day Market.
For the uninitiated, the CWA Hall is located on The Drive and hosts this monthly market to support local art, craft, design and music.
“It’s an eclectic collection of creative people selling their wares from local photography, pottery, jewellery, homewares, fashion, plants, honey and a delicious crafternoon tea.” says organiser Sandra “Baggie” Tilyard.
“We have a stall for the local children who are our future entrepenurs where you can purchase jewellery, cards or have a hair-wraps or your nails painted. It’s a fun day out in the village with art, craft, food and music. Twice a year we run the market as a CWA fundraiser and this Sunday we have our annual CWA Mothers day Market. Matty Woods will be providing the music, so come on down to the CWA and help make it a great day and raise some money for the CWA.”
Baggie has always been involved with textiles and fabric art and spent the last 16 years in Stanwell Park getting involved in the community with art classes, holiday programs and community murals.
This month has a few notable features including Backyard Honey, jewellery from TTTreasures, Wax’d Candles, canvas art from Flutterby Designs, kids clothing from Monkey & Chicken, and Scott Weeding Framing and Photography.
