Cardinian Embroidery Project
The Cardinian Embroidery project began in 2005 with two main aims - to bring together people from all over the Cardinia Shire to share their skills and work together and to produce a unique work of art that reflects the character of the Shire and contributes to local heritage. It consists of eight panels featuring historic buildings, parks and events in all the towns in the Cardinia Shire. Over 2000 people contributed to the embroidery. It can be viewed , free of charge, at the Cardinia Cultural Centre in Lakeside Boulevard, Pakenham. The Centre is open from 8.30am until 5.00pm Monday to Friday, Saturday for events only and Sunday 11.00am until 3.00pm. It is an extraordinary piece of work that showcases the history of the Cardinia Shire as well as the embroidery skills of the residents of the Cardinia Shire.
