The piece created from hundreds of small, unique knitted and crocheted creations pieced together isa pulsing sea of colour.

The artwork landed in Inverell after GramanSewing Group member Ann Hodgens saw Prudence’swork and felt it would complement the Inverell festival.

“I went to the stitches and craft show in Brisbane, and saw a piece that she has that is travelling around Australia that is called 50 Years of Flower Power,” Annsaid.

“We asked her if she had a piece she would loan that was appropriate to the festival.”

Festival committee member and Tourism Inverell staff memberAnn Clydsdale said Prudence’s piece, evoking a flower garden, represented the foundations of the event.

“It’s because the festival’s always been about a celebration of spring,” Ann said.

Fellow Graman sewing group member Di Uebergang said she and the other members were inspired to create three-dimensionaltapestries of their own.

“We thought we’d do some ourselves as a tribute,and we tried to make ours look more like flowers,” she said.

The Graman pieces are on display in the storefront next door to Campbell and Freebairn Chemists in Otho Street.

Prudence’s large piece and three smaller pieces are on display, along with a collection of historical images of Inverell’s Floral Festivals at the Tourism Centre through the month of October, and admission is free.
