    Painter, china painter, embroiderer (ecclesiastical and lay) leather worker (hand-bags, satchels, cases, and purses) - "The magpie calendars provided a novel souvenir, and the silk-beaded bags further increased the scope of Miss Wright's artistic gifts."

    At the time of her death on August 22, 1929 Miss Maida Wright was living in Thorngate street, Thorngate - a northern suburb of Adelaide. She was the youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Wright. She had an elder sister Hetty (or Hettie) and a brother, Mr. H. C. Wright of Medindie.

    Maida Wright was "born in Adelaide, and was educated at Miss McMinn's school, North Adelaide. She early manifested a leaming towards art, and studied under Miss Rosa Catherine Fiveash (1854-1938) at the School of Arts and Design in Adelaide. She specialised in china painting, and was one of the pioneers of that branch of art in this State. She was devoted to her work, and did her own designing, evolving many beautiful exhibits, particularly representations of Australian flowers and birds. Miss Wright established her own kiln at Thorngate, and baked her exhibits. Apart from china painting Miss Wright was an artist in oils, and executed many beautiful samples of needlework."
    Maida Wright was a South Australian china painter who studied oil and watercolour painting at the South Australian school of Arts and Crafts in Adelaide in 1907

    In 1910 Maida Wright exhibited 39 pieces of hand painted pottery at the South Australian Exhibition of Manufactures, Arts, Products and Industries. She had been studying part time under Howie and Gill according to Avis Carol Smith for a number of years until that exhibition. (Changing fortunes : the history of china painting in South Australia)

    "Successful Competitors at Adelaide Exhibition.—Miss M. Wright, who is on a visit to the Rev. and Mrs. Winter, Balaklava, is a successful exhibitor of painting on china at the Adelaide Chamber of Manufacturers' exhibition now being held. She has gained a silver medal and other prizes for her work. " (The Wooroora Producer (Balaklava, SA) Thu 21 Apr 1910, Page 2 )

    Single vase : certificate of merit, Miss M Wright. Painting on china (not elsewhere included)—Silver medal (and women's work prize). Miss M. Wright (tea set of six cups and saucers, jug and basin)"

    In 1911 Maida exhibited at the ADELAIDE SCHOOL OF ART. "Painting on china forms a delightful and useful pastime for ladies. All the designs are originaL Miss M. Wright displayed an afternoon tea set (bluebells), a dessert service (orchids), and vases (Sturt peas and freezias) Similar work was shown by Miss Barringer (native hop) and Miss Hubble (violet)." (The Advertiser (Adelaide, SA) Thu 25 May 1911 Page 8 )

    1911 : "Miss Maida Wright, of Childers-street, North Adelaide, is holding a private view of an exhibition of painted china in the centre old room of the Society of Arts rooms, North-terrace. Adelaide, on August 24. from 2 till 5 p.m."

    "Painting, on china has only been tentatively taken up so far by the Adelaide girl in search of a hobby, although I have seen some exquisite designs evolved from artistic and clever brains, and equally skilful fingers. Miss Wright, who also gives lessons in china painting at her home, Ward-street. North Adelaide, showed some delightful and beautifully-painted designs amongst the many articles on view. Chief, amongst them was a lovely dessert service of 18 pieces (12 plates, and the other six low and high dishes). The background was tinted a delicate biscuit color, with a whorl conventional design of purple orchids or brown' spider orchids. The toning was softly harmonious, the idea original, and symmetrical in conception, and the flowers faithfully and naturally depicted. On a small tray stood an afternoon tea set of quaintly-shaped cups and saucers, teapot, milk jug, and sugar basin. A beautiful shade of blue had been chosen for the pretty floral design, which was carried out with blue bells. A set of tiles, bearing a set pattern in orchids, very useful for teapot stands, caught one's eye, and for sweet little birthday gifts for girls nothing could prove more acceptable than the adorable hat-pins, the china heads being exquisitely painted in miniature with floral fancies, butterflies, or birds, set in silver rings. Amongst the many fine vases, one specially attracted universal admiration. It had a design of Sturt peas painted in a circle round the outer edge, and beneath was a broad band of highly-glazed vivid scarlet. Miss Wright explained that special powders had to be used to procure tire high glaze, and that the china had to be fired several times. A strawberry set, artistically arranged amidst tall vases, filled with daffodils, had a quaint mingling of fruit and flowers burnt in on a deep ivory tinted background. The toning of the background is a work of art in itself, as the color has to be laid on evenly and smoothly before the design is painted. Of all the different makes. Miss Wright prefers Austrian. French, or German china for her brushwork, although Wedgewood (English) is very good. Any of the charming pieces of china would prove a delightful acquisition to a drawing-room, and would entrance the heart of a collector, as Miss Wright's designs are all original and most varied in treatment.
    Amongst those admiring the exhibits were Mr. and Mrs. W. Pone, Mrs. F. Snow, Miss Snow, Miss. A. and Miss Walker, Miss Zoe Reid. Mrs. de la Poer Beresford, Mrs. H. Boothby. Mrs. and Miss Main, Miss Meyer. Miss Rogers, Mrs. W. Stacey, the Misses Fiveash. and many others." (Chronicle (Adelaide, SA) Sat 2 Sep 1911 Page 54 A DELIGHTFUL AFTERNOON, THOUGH "RACY.")

    In May 1912 Maida exhibited at the School of Arts Annual Exhibition : "-Carving and Ceramics.- Under the care of Mr L. H. Howie there were some first-class exhibits of woodcarving. The most delicate work was found in a design of eucalyptus on a bookrest by Mr. George Mills. Miss Ethel Barringer had a blackwood writing desk carved with the bloom and the foliage of the waratah. Miss U. Hubbe had a smoker's cabinet with tobacco plant carving. Other articles of furniture from hall chests to tea-trays were ornamented with original carvings, in which the conventional treatment of Australian floral and fauna was a feature, by Misses M. Culross and M. Fletcher, Mesdames H. Farmer, Allen, Simpson, and N. Giles, and Mr H. Farmer. A splendid exhibit of about 70 pieces of painted china, the colours of which had been burnt in in the school kiln by Mr. Howie, was a notable feature. The designs were all the work of the students, first drawn on the flat, and then copied on the china. The principal exhibitors were Miss Maida Wright, columbine plaque in purple and gold, and protea vase: Miss Ethel Barringer, vase with kangaroo and native flower decoration; Miss F Hubble teaset in eucalyptus scheme, and Miss Dorothy Prince, hollyhock vase."

    Member of the Adelaide Art Club 1915 - 19XX ..... "ADELAIDE ART CLUB. This club, which has been in existence only two years, opened its first exhibition on Wednesday afternoon in the Society of Arts Room, North terrace. Mr; W. J. Sowden performed the opening ceremony in the presence of a number of the members and their friends. The exhibits, which comprise paintings in oils and watercolours, hand-painted china, leatherwork, poker work, art needlework, art jewellery, and enamelling, are the work of only 12 of the' members, and they reflect much credit. There is a good display of hand-painted china, the handiwork of Miss Maida Wright, Miss E. Meyer, Miss Gladys McDowall, Miss F. Hubble, and , Miss R. Barnard, and some charming designs may be seen - in tea sets, vases, bowls, and , brooches. Miss Ethel Barringer's exhibit of art jewellery is distinctly unique. There are necklets and brooches all beautifully finished, and her enamels are characterised by originality and good workmanship. In the department of art needlework Miss Mabel Dawkins shows a well-designed tablecloth and some cushions. Miss Maude Priest is represented by good work in woodcarving, leatherwork, and paintings. Round the walls is a collection of paintings, some of which call for special mention. Miss M. Richardson is responsible for some remarkably clever work in illustrations of 'Grimm's Fairy Tales' and a hunting 'scene; they are wonderfully good. Mr. J. Gilessjfei his oil paintings of Sydney Harbour and 'Freshwater' has reached a high standard, and there are many others of equal merit.
    The exhibition will remain open for another week."

    "Miss Maida Wright, whose artistic ecclesiastical needlework, leather work, and china painting are well known, has classes for these branches of art at Ward street. North Adelaide. The china painting students have the advantage of using Miss Wright's kiln for firing. It is interesting to note that the kiln is the first made in Adelaide, and has proved a great success, the china after baking has the perfect glaze that in many kilns is difficult to produce. In September Miss Wright intends to hold an exhibition of her pupils' work."

    Change of address in May 1918 : "MISS MAIDA WRIGHT will hold a Class for CHINA PAINTING on Tuesday Afternoons at Miss E. Wright's Studio, 16 National Chambers, King William Street (late of 30 A.M.P. Building), in addition to Classes for China Painting and Leather Work at 395 Ward Street, North Adelaide. Orders executed for China Painting, Leather Work, Designs, and Firing of China. Miss E. Wright holds Classes Daily for Painting, Drawing, Design, Wood Carving, and Leather Work"

    1918 : THE ART CLUB.
    The annual general meeting of the club was held at Miss Dawkins' studio, Hindmarsh Buildings, on November 26. Officers elected:— President, Miss Elizabeth Armstrong; vice-presidents, Miss Priest and Messrs. Giles and Milbank; hon. treasurer, Miss Maida Wright; hon. secretary, Miss Mabel Dawkins; committee, Misses Ruby Henty, Blanche Francis, Florence Lake, and Ida Hamilton. Regret was expressed that Mr. Will Ashton, on account of leaving the State, was unable to be nominated for any office. Miss Armstrong lectured on the Scilly Isles. During the month the members, at Miss Maida Wright's invitation, spent the afternoon at Mount Lofty, where tea was provided at the Red Cross Tearooms.

    "MISS MAIDA WRIGHT'S ART EXHIBITION. Lovers of beauty in art will be able to indulge their happy inclinations for the next couple of weeks, for Miss Maida Wright is displaying a fine collection of china painting leatherwork, pictures, and other products of her versatile brush, at her home, 306 Ward street, North Adelaide. On Wednesday, the opening day, there was a crowd of admiring visitors who practically showed their appreciation of the novel array of Christmas treasures. The collection of china painting was particularly admired, and its fine coloring and faultless firing were the more praiseworthy, for Miss Wright managed the whole process in her own kiln there. The lustre colourings formed an extensive department, and to see dozens of beautifully shaded types, the visitor found it difficult to imagine that lustre work was a fine art in itself. Afternoon tea services, coffee cups, dessert sets, dressing table gifts, vases, plaques, and candlesticks, were among the room full of treasures. The Egyptian designs, called for special admiration, and the vivid Eastern colourings made bright spots in the display. Australian flowers figured on many services, and 'the magic mug' would delight every child. The leather work embraced many useful designs in hand-bags, satchels, cases, and purses; and natural coloured leathers were duplicated by delicately stained shades of every hue. The framed and unframed pictures comprised splendid glimpses of Torrens Lake, also flower studies, and gems of woodland retreats. The magpie calendars provided a novel souvenir, and the silk-beaded bags further increased the scope of Miss Wright's artistic gifts."(The Register (Adelaide, SA) Thu 28 Nov 1918 Page 6 )

    1917 - 1919 : Maida Wright's Studio, 306 Ward street, North Adelaide. Phone 1223.

    In December 1919 :"Attractive Artistry. Up a flight of stairs in the Mutual Chambers, King William street, turn to the right, enter the first door, and you will find yourself in the Room of Beautiful Things. One wonders if one-half of the people walking along the city pavements below have any idea of the art being exhibited in the room one story up of this building they pass carelessly by. It is the studio of Miss Maida Wright, and there is displayed the most exquisite painting on china done by this artist, who has her own kiln and does the baking in of the colours herself. So much to look at one does not know where to begin, but a tall vase of graceful shape catches one's eye, it has a pinkish mauve ground with iris design and leaves on it; just behind that is a very beautiful plaque in mauve patterned with creamy columbine. Most striking is an Egyptian vase of quaint design and wonderful colouring, old Indian red, black, yellow, and cream, with red and green points. Charming! An order just finished is e strawberry set—bowl and small plates, in Egyptian red, with black stripes and sphinx-like heads. So extremely attractive. Imagine the delight of ordering one's own particular fancy in the way of straw berry bowls, and tea-sets too, for Miss Wright has just finished the daintiest set possible, with gentle blue love-in-the-mist For design, and black handles on the cups, milk-jug. teapot, &c. Her collection of cups is delightful, for instance, mauve tetra theca on quaint-shaped cups with mauve stripes and handles. Then there are glorious lustre bowls, a black one lined with emerald green, or any colour one likes to choose. The blend of her colours shows the true artist sense of colour, and the sweep of her brush the finished artist China painting is her chief delight, but also she does beautiful embossed leather work and oil paintings."(Observer (Adelaide, SA : 1905 - 1931) Saturday 20 December 1919)

    Miss Maida Wright's exhibition of handprinted china, embossed leather work, and other attractive articles, will conclude this week. At 16 National Chambers, King William street, the sale of craftwork has been brisk." (The Register (Adelaide, SA : 1901 - 1929) Monday 7 July 1919 p 5)

    In December 1920 at the Art Club :"In addition to the pictures, there is a most creditable display of pottery and leather work, contributed by Miss Maida Wright (lustre, bowls and other pottery) ...."

    A year before her death in August 1929 this was a review of her 1928 Xmas exhibition : "MAIDA WRIGHT'S STUDIO. It speaks volumes for the popularity attained by Miss Maida Wright, the well known china painter, that her Christmas exhibition this season is breaking previous records. The reason is not far to seek for Miss Maida Wright has never done more artistic work than is at present on view. A visit to her conveniently situated studio, at Hammers, in Rundle street is sufficient to make patrons realize the beauty and appeal of those 'poems in china'. At the moment the artist is hard at work creating all sorts of appealing souvenirs that should delight the heart of the treasure hunter. A specialising has been wisely made, this year, in flower and fruit studies — branches of art in which Miss Maida Wright excels. Some lovely fruit and afternoon tea services are being created. Fruit caskets appear to contain plums and grapes, so lifelike is their representation. Dainty vases with Australian birds and bush scenes form an other medium of expression; and there are innumerable small gifts such as brooches, powder pots, flower bowls, ash trays, and single cups and saucers. Eiectric light shades, in richly toned designs, add their attractiveness to an all-round fine collection. A central position has been rightly conceded to a placque that enshrines the portrait.of a child gazing up at a bird that is perching in a bower of greenery. Light, warmth, and softness have all been achieved in this charming study. A many sided vase with a lemon lustre ground, has been chosen for an unusual series of woodland scenes."(The Register (Adelaide, SA) Wed 24 Nov 1926 Page 10 )

    In 1929 : Death of Miss Maida Wright.
    Miss Maida Wright, who died this morning at her home, Thorngate, was the youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. Wright. For many years she has been well and favorably known to art lovers of Adelaide as an exponent of china painting. Miss Wright had her own kiln at Thorngate, where she baked her exhibits, and she evolved many original designs, especially in representations of Australian flowers and birds. A sister, Miss Hetty Wright, survives her."

They comprised nume rous and beautiful works of art, the whole col lection making a delightful show. One of the features of the display was ? 'love in a mist' tci set of indescribable delicacy and daintiness, which waa admired by every one. It was admir ably set off by a large copper tray.

    HAND-PAINTED CHINA
    Industry of Miss Wright'
    Miss Maida Wright, w~o fires her own
    hand-painted china in her furnace a.
    Thorngate, has been working assiduou's.
    in preparation for her annual exhibition,
    which was opened' this afternoon in her
    studio, No. 6 Rundle street, Adelaide.
    The collection is distinguished by
    variety, originality in design, and well
    finished work. Some of the most attrac
    tive exhibits are in flamme rouge, which
    has a rich red hue, and other good pieces
    of craftsmanship are in matt colors
    flat surfaces without any glow-or in
    iridescent lustre.
    SIn her designs for fruit . llates and
    dishes Miss Wright has been exceptionally
    happy. One bowl in this section has
    an outside surface, in agate effect,. w.ith
    gold flecks in the darker color and the
    inside is adorned with a lifelike repr&
    scntation of fruit. A set of fruit plates
    is edged with butterflies, and the design
    on each is different, and makes a hiar
    mcnious whole.
    Plaques of wall ornaments vary in hue
    andi pattern. One depicts a bird of para
    dise amid the delicate tracery of fe.o
    thery foliage, others are adorned with
    figures, one noticeable one being that of
    a Chinese boy, and another of a Japaneje
    girl watching moths fluttering round a
    gay lantern.
    One of the most pleasing objects in
    the show is a tobacco jar with a quaint.
    old world Persian design, and a teaset in
    buff matt and orange lustre is artistically
    decorated with clusters of tiny flowers.
    Four teacups have the orchid as the
    motif of their embellishment, each cult
    being of a different shade. Broad gold
    bands with red eucalyptus blossom in the
    panels between distinguish a second set.
    Sets of coffee cups show the scarab
    design and Australian birds alternating
    with gold panels. There are tiny bright
    colored sweets dishes, lattice work baskets
    for nuts or sweets, trinket and puff boxes,
    and a collection of dainty hand-painted
    brooches.
    The exhibition will be open daily for
    a fortnight from 10 to 5.30 o'clock.

    Passing Of Noted S.A. Educationist Many old pupils, both in South Australia and beyond it, will re vere the memory of Miss Caroline Jacob, who died recently in her 80th year. Not only was Miss Jacob the descendant of a well-known pioneer family — her father, Mr. John Jacob, arrived in the Rapid with Colonel Light in 1838 — but she was herself a noted educationist with a progressive outlook and outstanding personality. Born in 1861 at Sevenhills, Miss Jacob subsequently joined the Education De- partment as a teacher, and worked with the late Mr. Hartley, whose influence and help she was always eager to acknowledge. After being for some years on the staff of the Advanced School for Girls, Miss Jacob took over in 1898 the Misses McMinn's School in North Adelaide, and made Tormore House in Childers street one of the most modern and advanced second ary schools in Adelaide. Not only did she follow as closely as possible all the newer methods of educa- tion in England and elsewhere, giving excellent lectures on the Miss Caroline Jacob Help Miss Caroline Jacob theory of teaching each week to her staff, but she was the first head mistress in Adelaide to introduce a school uniform and badge in a girls' school. She was the first, too, to bring physical culture into the school curri- culum, and brought out a teacher from England specially for this. In 1912 Miss Jacob went to England, and while there she was made a member of the Secondary Schools Headmistresses' As- sociation of England — a singular honor. In 1900 the Tormore Old Scholars' Association was formed, and with a membership of about 150, it meets for an annual reunion in the old gymna- sium room at Tormore House, and in cludes in its social services some of those dear to the heart of the founder of the old school. Until the two years Miss Jacob attended each re- union, and she was president for many years. Her niece, Mrs. Bruce Durdin, is the present president. Typical of the many tributes from her pupils received on

    —Carving and Ceramics.- Under the care of Mr L. H. Howie there were some first-class exhibits of woodcarving. The most delicate work was found in a de- sign of eucalyptus on a bookrest by Mr. Grorge Mills. Miss Ethel Barringer had a blackwood wnting desk carved with the bloom and the foliage of the waratah. Miss U. Hubbe had a smoker's cabinet with tobacco plant carving. Other articles of fur- niture from hall chests to tea-travs were ornamented with original carvings, in which the conventional treatment of Australian floral and fauna was a feature, by Misses M. Culross and M. Fletcher, Mesdames H. Farmer, Allen, Simpson, and N. Giles, and Mr H. Farmer. A splendid exhibit of about 70 pieces of painted china, the colours of which had been burnt in in the school kiln by Mr. Howie, was a notable feature. The designs were all the work of the studnets, first drawn on the flat, and then copied on the china. The principal exhibitors were Miss Maida Wright, columbine plaque in purple and gold, and protea vase: Miss Ethel Barringer, vase with kangaroo and native flower decoration; Miss F Hubble teaset in eucalyptus scheme, and Miss Doro- thy Prince, hollyhock vase.

    :"Attractive Artistry. Up a flight of stairs in the Mutual Chambers, King William street, turn to the right, enter the first door, and you will find yourself in the Room of Beautiful Things. One wonders if one-half of the people walking along the city pavements below have any idea of the art being exhibited in the room one story up of this building they pass carelessly by. It is the studio of Miss Maida Wright, and there is displayed the most exquisite painting on china done by this artist, who has her own kiln and does the baking in of the colours herself. So much to look at one does not know where to begin, but a tall vase of graceful shape catches one's eye, it has a pinkish mauve ground with iris design and leaves on it; just behind that is a very beautiful plaque in mauve patterned with creamy columbine. Most striking is an Egyptian vase of quaint design and wonderful colouring, old Indian red, black, yellow, and cream, with red and green points. Charming! An order just finished is e strawberry set—bowl and small plates, in Egyptian red, with black stripes and sphinx-like heads. So extremely attractive. Imagine the delight of ordering one's own particular fancy in the way of straw berry bowls, and tea-sets too, for Miss Wright has just finished the daintiest set possible, with gentle blue love-in-the-mist For design, and black handles on the cups, milk-jug. teapot, &c. Her collection of cups is delightful, for instance, mauve tetra theca on quaint-shaped cups with mauve stripes and handles. Then there are glorious lustre bowls, a black one lined with emerald green, or any colour one likes to choose. The blend of her colours shows the true artist sense of colour, and the sweep of her brush the finished artist China painting is her chief delight, but also she does beautiful embossed leather work and oil paintings."

    MISS MAIDA WRIGHT'S ART EXHIBITION. Lovers of beauty in -art will be able to indulge their happy inclinations for the next couple of weeks, for Mjeb Maida Wright m displaying a fine collection ot china painting ieatherwork, pictures, and other producta ot' her versatile brush, at her home, 306 Ward etreet, North Ade ,laide. On Wednesday, the opening day, there was a crowd of admiring visitors who practically ehowed their appreciation of the novel array of Christmas treasures. The collection of china painting was particu larly admired, and ite fine coluunng and faultless firing were the more praiseworthy, for Miss Wright managed tire whole pro cess in her own kiln there. The lustre colourings formed an extensive department, and to see dozens of beautifully shaded types, the vkitor found it d.fficult to ima gine that lustre work was a fine art in iteelf. Afternoon tea services, coffee cups, ^dessert sete, dnasing table gi/cs, vases, plaques, and candlesticks, were among the room full of treasures. The Egyptian de signs, called for special admiration, and the vivid Eastern colourings made bright spots in the display. Australian flowers figured on many services, and 'the magic mug' would delight every child. The leather work embraced many useful designs in hand bags, satchels, cases, and purses; and natu ral coloured leathers were duplicated by delicately stained shades of every hue. The framed and unframed pictures comprised splendid glimpses of Torren3 Lake, also flower studies, and gems of woodland re treats. The magpie calendars provHed a novel souvenir, and the silk-beaded bags further increased the ecope of Mies Wright's artistic gifts. 'Do yon think early rising is good for your health?' asked the languid city visitor. 'I don't know about my health,' replied Farmer Cobbles, 'but next to sun, rain, and fertUizer, it's the best thins there is for the crop*.'

    ??? Why are there text errors? OBITUARY The death of Mrs. Mary Ann Wright, which occurred at Meningie recently, re moved a fine pioneer colonist. She was in her ninety-fourth year. Born at Molesworth, Huntingdon, England; in Feb ruary 1825, she married Mr. George Wright in that town in 1854. In the same year they sailed for South Aus tralia; in the Lord Raglan, the voyage occupying six months. They first went to live at Middleton, and five years later went to Milang, and later to Mobilong, where they lived for about 10 years. The family moved later to Narrung, and after wards to the Coorong, near the Needles. From there they went to live at Woods Wells, in the employ of the late Mr. Thomas McCallum, father of the Hon. Thomas McCallum, M.L.C, and stayed there for about 10 years. Mr. Wright died at Woods Wells, and Mrs. Wright shortly afterwards removed to Meningie; where she had since resided. Of a family of 11, the following nine sons and daughters, two of whom are over 70 years of age survive:— Messrs. James, ,G. W. J. A., J. B. E.. and W. C., all of Meningie; and Mesdames M. E.

    ???? NEAT FINISH NECESSARY Hints for Show Needlewuorkers JUDGE ADVISES IN an interesting chat with Miss E. Wright, who has often judged the neealework sections at the Royal Agricultural Show, some points that those intending to enter might find useful, were learnt. When asked about white work, Miss Wright said immediately that neat finish and cleanliness were two great points. Entries in embroidery sections may be carefully pressed, but must not be laundered. Very few entrants make mistakes in this regard, however, as it has been a condition for many years. The back of the work also is impor tant. In some cases this is so neat that it can hardly be distinguished from the front. Knots and long stitches at the back of work will lose points. In colored embroidery work harmony and.choice of color are important fea tures, quite as important as the quality of the actual sewing. Charm of design is another point to be considered. Some of the work shown is often crude in coloring. said Miss Wright. none Help As with colored em broidery, the general effect is largely consi dered when tapestry; work is being _ judged. First the ,. judges consider this, then if several articles are equally "f attractive, de S\- fects in the \ chosen ones, such as irregu lar stitches or. back of the piece are looked for- - and are generally very hard to find, Miss Wright added. - Crochet work also has come within Miss Wright's jurisdiction. In o this regular stitches and even work count tremendously. There- must not be looseness of stitchery. A simple pat tern well done has as good a chance of winning the prize as an elaborate one. The same thing applies to a small piece of work as compared with a large one. It is the quality of the work, however simple the design, that counts niost. In knitted work joins must not be knotted, all pieces of wool must be grafted; Evenness of stitchery counts in this as in crochet. Seams of gar ments may be machined, but machine knitted basques, cuffs, and collars

    Arts And Crafts Hints For Royal Show ISS E. Wright, who is an autho rity on things artistic,.has: judged arts and crafts several times., at the Royal Agricultural Show; as wvell as needlework. These arts and crafts include leather work. The design and the neatness with which it is executed, says Miss Wright: count most in this kind of work. When a special article is not specified the usefulness and attrac tiveness of the article to be judged' would count, in addition to the do.: sign. With embroidery on arras cloth, coloring and' design at well as neatness of. stitches would be con sidered. . Poker work is .another popular branch of art craft. In this, as in. every kind of art work, Miss Wright says the same things apply. The evenness of the work is a point to watch. China painting is a more, un usual class, and here daintinees of design is important In wood c'arv ing. nice clean cuts are the things the judges look for, as well as an attractive design. Few people can enter for hand weaving, as looms are rare, but charm of design and coloring are the outstanding factors in an article's success in this class.
