SUNSHINE Coast Arts and Crafts' talented members played grandmothers and aunts for the day when they visited the Friday unit of the Nambour Brownies.

Group members Robyn Bailey, Susan Fisher and Nell Mayers were only too happy to share their enthusiasm for craft and colour with the girls who had an afternoon of discovery, textures and smells.

Girl Guide district manager Marilyn Pritchard said the women were welcome visitors to the guides and gave the girls the opportunity to try something new.

"The girls were quite excited by Robyn's lesson in spinning, especially given they were able to feel the soft and colourful textures of the materials she uses to make things such as hats and blankets and that her spinning wheel is very traditional and reminiscent of something straight out of Sleeping Beauty,” she said.

"The enthusiasm and delight was quite clear as each girl listened intently to the information that each of our talented ladies was sharing before trying some craft for themselves.

"Given the range of ages of girls that we have in our group from seven to 12, it was wonderful to see them so eager to give these crafts a go - something they may not otherwise experience outside of guides.”

The Sunshine Coast Arts and Crafts will be sharing their exceptional talents again on Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4pm at the Montville Village Hall as part of the Community Fair.

Boasting free entry, the fair will feature 100% locally made craft goods including fabric art, handbags, children's clothing, pottery, jewellery, knitted goods, woodwork, cards and souvenirs plus embroidery work.

In true country hospitality, refreshments will include devonshire teas, coffee, drinks, home-made cakes, slices and sandwiches.
