Taree PCYC Craftathon Show n Shine

I will be showing my car at the PCYC event – Craftathon 2013

Taree PCYC, with Taree Historic Motor Club

95 Commerce St, Taree

Sunday 4th August, 2013 – 10:00am – 3:00pm

On Saturday and Sunday, August 3 and 4, Taree PCYC will come alive with more than 40 craft exhibitors all under one roof ready to wow you with their exquisite craft and huge range of craft supplies.

And the best part is, these experts in their fields are willing to share their skills with you, their patrons.

This is the 15th annual Craftathon for Taree and the huge PCYC auditorium has proved to be the ideal venue, being able to accommodate the whole show indoors, including workshop areas and a kiosk providing good food and refreshments.

There will be craft give-aways throughout the show and one lucky visitor will win a sewing package of sewing machine, sewing table and Tutto trolley bag valued at $1000. This amazing prize has been sponsored by Janome and Just Patchwork of Tuncurry, and will be drawn at the show on Sunday at 3pm.

On Sunday, members of Taree Historic Motor Club will display a selection of their amazing veteran and vintage cars for all to enjoy. The club has about 140 members who own more than 500 historic cars, and these include a 1925 T Model Ford, a 1938 MG TA Sedan, a Fiat Spyder, a Studebaker Hawk and a Chev Corvette.

With many on-site demonstrations and a program of workshops on both days, there is the opportunity to explore and learn new crafts.

There is also a knitting competition on both days with a prize for the fastest knitter, and an encouragement prize.


Opening times are 10am to 4pm on Saturday and 10am to 3pm on Sunday. Entry fees are adults $5, under 16 years $2, under 12 years free (with adult).
