Patch - Victorian Women on Farms Gathering, Warragul, 31 Mar-1 Apr 1990 Object Reg. No: HT 1412 3

Patch created retrospectively for the innagural 1990 Warragul Women on Farms Gathering. As the idea for creating a Perpetual Banner did not come about until several years later, this patch was made well after the inaugural Gathering. It was fashioned from a calico bag which had been printed and used as a showbag at the first Gathering. The design includes images of farming activities in the local area, including dairy and crops, with a hilly landscape at the top. Some of these images were originally created for publicity for the Women on Farms Skills Courses, run by McMillan College in the late 1980s. The theme for the Warragul Gathering was 'Bringing Farm Women Together.' The patch is attached to the perpetual banner which is used at the Gathering each year.
White cotton square featuring green printed mountains at the top, printed text reading '1990/WARRAGUL' in the centre and five printed icons at the base. The icons are square-shaped and depict various farming scenes - irrigation, cows, a tractor, fencing and milking machinery.
