Crafters will have a rare opportunity to show their work to a CWA judge for advice and feedback.

Dungog Clarence Town CWA President Julie Fitzgerald said four highly skilled CWA judges are coming to Dungog to meet with the community - and they want to see your craft work.

The event is in the CWA rooms in Dowling Street Dungog and the 15-minute segments will run between 10am and 1pm on Monday, February 3.

The judges want to meet everyone - men and women who can knit, sew, crochet, weave, felt, embroider and more.

"We are asking people to search in their cupboards and bring in their own work that is less than two years old," said Ms Fitzgerald.

"They'll get some good feedback and some tips.

"With the maker's permission we would like to take the best of the handicraft by non members into the regional competition. The next stage after that is the state competition.

"These levels are very competitive and have prize money."

There has always been sections for non-members in the CWA's handicraft competitions but the small print has put many people off in the past, Ms Fitzgerald said.

The list of items wanted for the experts to view is available in the CWA window, the Dungog library and from the CWA Dungog rooms.
