My visit to the Royal Easter Show April 2010
I spent 3 days at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney, from 12th to 14th April, 2010, and I had the most marvellous time! I met an extraordinary amount of people of all ages, and who had a go at silk painting. It was soooo much fun!
Here’s my booth, a fabulous 4x5m where I had silk clothing and scarves displayed on the walls, and long tabels where I did the silk painting demonstrations:

People who visited my booth put their name on my list, then all I had to do was to pick one Winner from each day to receive an Originala Handpainted Silk Scarf by me – Teena Hughes – and here they are below.
Winners of the 3 Handpainted Silk Original Scarves
- Eleanor MacGregor
- Hugh Lennon
Congratulations! The winners have been emailed and as soon as I have their addresses I’ll be posting them out.
I’ll be adding more photos to this page to share with you all the fabulous fun I had teaching silk painting to soooo many people!

I had kids from 2 and 3 years old having a go at silk painting, all the way up to teenagers and adults, and I had the BEST time! There’s nothing more special than showing people how to do something I love and get so much enjoyment out of!

Plus I wanted to share this video with you for a bit of fun 🙂
It’s the start of the End-of-Show Street Parade, which was fantastic, everyone full of energy, having successfully survived the Show. Enjoy!
