Fine cotton success

GAYE Sim’s crochet has built up a notable reputation over four decades.

Her work has long been admired and revered at the annual Boort Agricultural Show and at Northern District finals.

And in results just announced, her skills have been further recognised, taking out first place in the Royal Melbourne Show state final.

Gaye’s winning doily was intricately worked with fine cotton and it is clear to see why it caught the judge’s eye.

Gaye, along with her friend Alison Saunders taught themselves to crochet when they were 17 using books for instruction.

Since then, Gaye has crocheted hundreds of pieces including baby shawls for each of her children and grandchildren which have become family heirlooms.
