Patch - Victorian Women on Farms Gathering, Warragul, 30 Apr-2 May 1999 Object Reg. No: HT 1412 12

Patch presented in 1999 by the Warragul Women on Farms Gathering committee for the Women on Farms Gathering perpetual banner. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Women on Farms Gatherings, the 1999 Gathering was again held in Warragul. This patch was sewn by a local group of 'quilters', who also created the 'Country Spirit' quilt displayed during this Gathering. The theme for the Warragul Gathering was 'Celebrating Success From Challenge.' The patch is now attached to the perpetual banner which is used at the Gathering each year.
Square fabric patch with a central panel printed to depict a farm scene with mountains, a cottage, cows, paddocks and ducks. This panel has been applied by hand with blanket stitch and is bordered by red fabric with applied fabric lettering that reads: 'CELEBRATING/SUCCESS FROM/CHALLENGE/WARRAGUL 1999'.
