Needlework & Embroidery Exhibition at RSL


The past efforts of the Anglesea Needlework & Embroidery Club went on display on Saturday 02/11/02, at the RSL Clubrooms. This annual Needlework & Embroidery Exhibition is organised by the club to raise money for the Royal Victorian Institute for the Blind (RVIB) Anglesea Auxiliary.

According to the Anglesea Auxiliary President, Perl Pickett the day was a great success. "Absolutely wonderful", she said. "We raised $1,181 from door takings and the raffle. We've never done that before."

"A big thank you to Jenny Bubb and her team for all their efforts" said Perl.

The Auxiliary members were the catering staff and they also provided the scones and cream. This lovely Devonshire Tea could be purchased and eaten in the shade of the backyard trees.

Members of the Anglesea Needlework & Embroidery Club meet every second Saturday of the month at the RSL Hall to develop skills and share ideas. The exhibition showcased the projects completed during the past year. The Club welcomes people of all ages.

The RVIB Anglesea Auxiliary has 25 members and meets on the first Monday of each month. They not only raises funds for the RVIB, but also provide support and services for visually impaired local residents.

The Anglesea Auxiliary operates a Talking Book Library which has a wide selection of narrated novels. Members of the Library make their selection from the catalogue and the books are sent down once a month from RVIB Head Office in Melbourne.

If you suffer from visual impairment and need help, the Anglesea Auxiliary can organise an RVIB assessor to come down and conduct an interview to assess your needs. The RVIB also sells many helpful household utilities specially designed for visually impaired people.

Raffle Results: W. Lee, Norma May, Margaret Dickie and Jean Stagg.
