Huge roll up for scroll up

MORE than 1000 people from all over Australia descended on Gympie throughout the weekend for the National Scroll Saw Exhibition, held at the Gympie Woodworks


Organisers were happy with the turnout with hundreds of people browsing the exhibition and wandering through the Woodworks Museum at any given time.

Contributing committee member Steve Andrews said the overall function went really well with about 70

people attending the official reception.

"It was a successful affair," Mr Andrews said.

With a large cash prize pool on offer, the country's top scroll sawyers submitted a high standard of entries and in turn attracted large numbers of visitations to the museum, which had the steam sawmill operating on Saturday.

The exhibitions are held in various towns around the country every two years.

The 2014 show will be held at Echuca, in Victoria.
