Exchanging Ideas

Women of the L.D.S. Relief Society and the Cobham School Parent-Teachers' Association recently got together in the L.D.S. Chapel in Cochrane Street to exchange ideas for supplying stock for sale at their shop days.

Samples of the work done by both organisations were displayed, and lectures on the making of bed quilts, clothing, and novelty items were given.

To help supply goods for its monthly shop days, the L.D.S. committee holds judged competitions among its members.

Fortnightly working bees help swell the stock of articles to he sold at the Cobham school's annual shop day.
