My 1925 Ford Model T at ‘Craftathon’ 2014, Taree, NSW

Members of the Taree Historic Motor Club were invited to show their cars at Craftathon 2014.

We had a modest turnout of cars, in spite of the threatening weather, but all turned out good in the end.

Cars included Mitch Taylor’s 1925 Ford Model T, Ian Dyball’s Peugeot 203, Gregory Lee’s 1913 Rover Torpedo 12HP and Allan Walters’ 1929 Chrysler 75; and a number of others too.

Thankyou Shae for your great work taking some of the pictures. A number of other members’ cars from the club were also present.

Taree Craft Centre presents Craftathon 2014, with around 40 quality exhibitors displaying, demonstrating and selling their exquisite crafts. They also conduct workshops throughout the show and this all takes place under one roof in the Taree PCYC auditorium, 95 Commerce Street, Taree.

After 14 annual shows, Craftathon has become a major event for the Mid North Coast attracting quality exhibitors, some from Capital cities, and patrons from up and down the coast.

The event is supported by some generous sponsors, especially the local newspaper the Manning River Times, who provide excellent publicity and promotion, and “Just Patchwork” of Tuncurry, who provide a sewing machine package prize valued at around $1000, which is drawn at the end of the show.
