An audio presentation explains each panel. Tours start every 30... More

Visiting Deloraine? Do visit Yarns Artwork in Silk. There are four large silk panels, one for each season, showing all aspects of work in textiles. The audio presentation tells the story of the Meander Valley, its history, its people and lifestyle. This magnificent project is housed at the Deloraine Information Centre, open 7 days a week.

This is an absolutely stunning display - especially if you love textitles, patchwork, quilting and applique, etc. If not, you will still be fascinated by the works and the detail they show. The commentary was terrific and although the light was dim in the auditorium, beams shone on the sections described. Deloraine's culture and place are uniquely depicted in the... More

A wonderfully insightful look into the history and pride of the Deloraine community. The intricate details, combined with information about the kinds of materials used provided a great presentation that had the Wow factor. Not to be missed.

I'm crafty but my husband isn't. I think I enjoyed this more than he did, yet he was highly impressed nonetheless. It cost $18/family to hear a recording about the four panels and then you have about 10 minutes to look until the lights turn off. Your entry fee also gives you access to the "musuem." This is a bit... More

We were surprised by the amazing skills that went into the silk four panels that make up the main attraction. But there is far more- a great museum in the old farmhouse that is part of the $8 per head experience. Enjoy!

The "Yarns" display is well worth a visit to Deloraine to view. The small charge is well worth it, both for the stunning silk work panels, but also the immaculately maintained outdoor displays of local history. Be sure to visit both, and the helpful staff are great touring guides too.

4 panels showing the seasons of meander valley, this artwork was created by hundreds of community members. They are displayed in a way that talks you through the beauty, highlights and details of each panel, while you sit back in comfort and jusy admire it.
