Isobel Harvie’s A Step Back in Time exhibition proved another resounding success for Kyabram last week.
More than 1000 people visited Kyabram Community and Learning Centre to see the display during its nine-day tenure, helping to raise $16
‘‘It was an amazing week and certainly a very busy one,’’ Mrs Harvie said.
‘‘We had visitors from so many different places including Bendigo, Benalla, Kerang, Euroa and a lot of them had come back after seeing last year’s exhibition, it was just wonderful to see so many people in the town.’’
The furthest travelled was most likely a lady from Canada who planned a visit to her family to tie in the exhibition week.
‘‘She came to A Stitch Back in Time last year and when her family told about this one she arranged another visit around the dates,’’ Mrs Harvie said.
