Examples of items to be shown are cross-stitch, needlepoint, hardanger, beading, punch card, Swedish weaving, embroidery, handmade lace pieces and smocked items. Everything in the show will be created by a member of one of the participating clubs. Members will also be on hand demonstrating the various categories of handwork and to answer questions.

A boutique will also offer small items such as Christmas cards made by club members available for purchase.
