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.

These 4 panels of needlework have such amazing detail and capture the history and character of the town. An extraordinary feat by the community to work together to achieve this- a must see. You also get to go through the town museum for the price which is well presented along with Deloraine itself having wonderful Tasmanian scenery

The Deloraine Visitors' Centre is well worth a visit on two counts; the Yarns artwork is extraordinary, both in its conception and execution. One doesn't need to know anything about embroidery to appreciate the skill and craftsmanship displayed in four large panels, depicting Deloraine in each of the four seasons, but as a sometime embroiderer I could apreciate the work...

Its well worth visiting . Incredible needle work. Wonderfully displayed and explained. It shows the dedication of a group of people in the community to come up with a project that will go on for life

"You don't have to be into handicrafts...." But for those of us who are, this work of art is a feast of talent. The icing on the cake was the commentary which described the stitches and techniques used. I loved it that I was able to get close enough to appreciate the details, as well as sit comfortably to view... More

The Yarns Artwork in Silk together with the Deloraine and Districts Folk Museum make one of the most unexpected and delightful museum attractions in Tasmania. It is not large but it is curated and presented immaculately. The beautiful 4 piece tapestry representing the district is sublime in its size and detail. The creativity, colour and execution is matchless. It is... More
