At the beginning of spring. the little country town of Laidley, in the Lockyer Valley, Queensland, opens its doors for their Annual Spring Festival. There are open gardens, entertainments, floral art displays, fine art shows, and all manner of crafting to grab the attention of visitors. The open gardens are mostly accessible for a couple of weeks while the arts and crafts exhibitions, which are held in various locations throughout the town, are condensed into a four-day viewing.
The first time I went to the Laidley Spring Festival I went along to the Quilt and Craft Expo held in the Uniting Church,
