GFWC Philaco Woman’s Club of Apalachicola on Jan. 18 held its annual arts and crafts competition at the St. George Island Firehouse.

Our distinguished judges were Cecilia Harris and Shirley Richardson. Club members enjoyed a delicious lunch provided by the arts and crafts committee. Lynn Wilson lead Philaco members in an art activity which all enjoyed.

The program concluded with four blue ribbon winners, all of whom will go on to the District 2 Arts & Crafts Show on March 3 for judging.

Winners were Tammy Flagg, who entered an oil painting of a beautiful scenic landscape, Barb Paget’s hand-woven flower basket made from delicate pine needles; and Cathy Bailey, who entered a handcrafted Christmas stocking embellished with heirloom stitching and smocking, along with a crib musical mobile beautifully adorned with embroidery, pin tucking, and smocking.

All winners at the district will be eligible to compete at the state level at the GFWC General Federation of Women's Clubs Spring Conference in Orlando.
