WHILE much of the entertainment in the Home Hill District over the next month or two will be on the sporting fields, an event not to be missed displaying the artistic talent in the area will be the popular Burdekin Artisan Community Association’s annual “Burdekin Rags to Runway 2023”.
The event tests the skills of participating seamstresses in turning valueless garments, that may have been sitting in a cupboard or on a shelf in an Opportunity Shop for long periods, into outstanding fashions that will stand out in the crowd at any major event.
The Presentation Night of the completed outfits has attracted good crowds in the past years, when it has been held under the stars at the Burdekin Netball Association Courts in Home Hill.
However, this year will feature a different atmosphere as the updated fashions will be featured on stage at the Burdekin Memorial Hall on Saturday night, April 22, 2023 with seating from 7pm for a 7.30pm start to the announcement of the judges’ decisions in the various sections.
Sewing enthusiasts from throughout the northern region have displayed their skills in past events with a variety of outstanding outfits being shown on the catwalk.
Tickets are available at $40 per person from the Burdekin Artisan Community Association Inc at “170 Arts on the Avenue” 170 Eighth Avenue, Home Hill Qld 4806 or online at TryBooking.com
All funds raised will stay in the Home Hill district supporting the many artists who display their varying forms of artwork at the Artisan Community Shop at 170 Eighth Avenue, Home Hill, adjacent to Ashworths Rock Shop.
