  4. Doris, you and all involved with making this happen were wonderful as always.
    Congratulations to everyone. Very proud to have been a winner.
    Though in my book everyone who entered were winners as they were sharing and promoting our passion for crochet. That’s what it is all about for me.
    Thank you again for making this happen.

  8. Its wonderful that you took the trouble to show all these photos – thank you Doris! I live in Australia and as someone who could not make it to the show, its fantastic to get a feel for the whole event and see the other marvellous entries. There is a huge amount of talent and seeing it is inspiring! Feeling very proud to be a place winner in the fashion category. Thank you to all involved.
