Geltwood Gumboot Project

March 2020

Covered gumboots need to be handed in at the Millicent Library by a date yet to be confirmed so they can be included in the shopfront display as part of the Geltwood Festival.

 

Please add a label with your contact details if you are wanting to collect your gumboots afterwards and/or if your gumboot cover has been made with a theme eg nursery rhyme, event, country etc as this will help in organising the display.

"So as to have a really red hot go at making the covered Gumboot record it has been decided to hold over the actual count to the Geltwood Market Day in 2020. This will give us all extra time to make those gumboot covers and be inspired by the display that will be held as part of this years Geltwood Festival. So keep crocheting, embroidering etc and if you would like to have your covers included in the 2019 display send or drop them off to Geltwood Gumboot Challenge, 70 George Street, Millicent, 5280 SA. Please label them with your name and contact details if you want to collect them after the event."

The intent is to demonstrate creativity and innovation in using fibre craft to cover as many gumboots as possible in seeking a Record for the most ‘fibre crafted gumboots covers’.The project is meant to promote the Geltwood Festival through providing a fun, and quirky element. For some this may also be an opportunity to demonstrate their expertise but that is not a requirement. We want people of all ages and from anywhere in the world to join in. As long as their gumboots are in Millicent, suitably covered and able to be counted as part of the Geltwood market day activities then they will be included.Fibre crafts include: Crochet, Knitting, Tatting, Felting, Quilting, Applique, Embroidery, Tapestry, Macrame, Patchwork, Weaving, (any others)
