Members of the 'Yarn' knitting group, which is based at the Victor Harbor Library, have been extremely busy completing their knitted and crochet garments in preparation for an exhibition that will be held at the library during opening hours from April 12-30.

The exhibition will feature contemporary and traditional work by local 'Yarn' artists and will include garments from tiny baby bootees to scarves, toys, a host of winter woollies, and even house hold items like rugs and cushions.

Annie Basham and Phyllis Williams, both members of the group are co-ordinating this year's event which was cancelled last year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

"We are very excited to present the exhibition and to display some of the beautiful work that has been created by members of our group," Ms Basham said.

"We always welcome new members to the 'Yarn' group and during the exhibition some of our people will be on hand to chat to visitors to the exhibition about their garments, how to join the group and to discuss methods and techniques in the age old art of wool crafting.

"We meet at 10am on Wednesday mornings at the Victor Harbor Library and it's a great opportunity to socialise, meet new people, swap patterns and ideas and to enjoy a relaxing morning."

Whether you are into yarn or not, the exhibition will offer a wide range of colourful and interesting works which are sure to grab your attention.

For more information on the Yarn group, contact the Victor Harbor Library at 1 Bay Road, Victor Harbor.

The exhibition opens next Monday, April 12.
