The Club Taree Embroiders Exhibition at Club Taree on Friday September 6 and Saturday September 7 drew out members of the community who had antique embroidery works in their possession.
"There was a lot of interest. It obviously brought back a lot of memories to a lot of people," club member Leith Colledge said.
"Some people had actually brought in very old embroideries to show us. We were really thrilled with that. There were quite a few - four or five or so. That was really good to see."
Of particular interest to the people attending were embroidery works more than 100 years old that had been created by nuns, and a 100-year-old christening gown.
"One lady had a christening frock that was made around the same time as the one we had on show. And she said 'oh, if I'd had known what it was, I'd have put mine in!'," Leith said.
Although the exhibition was quiet on Friday, they had a steady stream of people through the doors on Saturday.
"It went fairly well considering the windy weather that we've had. I feel that it was quite successful. We were happy with it," Leith said.
The Embroiders raised more than $700 for Can Assist with the raffle of a patchwork quilt.
"We were really thrilled with that considering the raffle only went over the two days," Leith said.
"Thank you to the people that attended and supported the raffle."
