Hand-crank sewing machine competition

We’ve done it again.   This year’s Steiglitz celebrations are offering you a competition you’ll all enjoy.  


Age, skills, experience, gender or sporting prowess…none of them matter.    All you need is the willingness to ‘have a go’.  For if you do, there’s a good chance you’ll win a prize as unique as this quirky town.

Intrigued?    Good…read on.  

Judi & Wayne McKail (of Sew What Maryborough) - see pic below .....   are a wonderfully eccentric couple.  Their travelling sewing machine exhibition is, some say, the biggest and best in the Southern Hemisphere.

Together they’ve concocted this year’s Steiglitz hand-crank sewing machine competition.  

Never used a hand crank sewing machine?  Or even seen one? Don’t worry.  Judi & Wayne say it’s easy.  They’ll even show you how.

Did you just ask, “But what do you have to sew?”

A Steiglitz-themed pennant.                                                                                    

One which will become part of the Back to Steiglitz bunting at day’s end.  Then forever more used at each & every future Steiglitz event.

And the prize in this fun competition?
