“Fantastic exhibition we almost missed out on.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

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.

“have a look, even if artwork isn't your thing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

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 of a hodgepodge of things, mostly olden day things. The neatest part of the museum was a water pool full of musical instruments.

“Not just the artwork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

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!

“Worth a visit to Deloraine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

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.

“stunning community artwork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

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.
