The usual tools were presented: hammers belonging to a late dad and a late husband; tin snips, chisels, pinchers, screw drivers and an old Imperial metal tape measure made in Canada. Not tools, a Dr. Pat old tobacco tin contained an assortment of devices/pins to hang pictures; a corrugated iron sign; and, a very old wooden box that had previously held chalk. There was also a discussion on shoe lasts.
A collection of shiny horse bits were shown – a snaffle bit, thumb bit, racing bit and bits for training, racing and soft mouth sensitivities.
Fabric patchwork bags were presented often made from scraps with handy pockets to hold sewing essentials. There were two evening purses – one beautifully beaded and the other made from men’s ties. Three Oroton handbags were shown and an old crocodile skin handbag made in Madras.
The theme for the gathering on 2nd October is "Baby/Childhood Photos of oneself"
