MEMBERS of the Catholic Women's League in Labasa have started preparations for their AGM next month.

Handicraft work, mat weaving, paintings, sewing and designing of cushion covers, table covers and curtains were part of their showcase day.

President Selina Lee Wah said the showcase was to encourage women to do handicraft work and sell them to support their families.

"It will give them an income for their families' needs and also assist our members take care of other financial expenses," she said.

"Involving our members with this kind of work will also help them become creative at what they do."

Mrs Lee Wah said most of their members were housewives.

"And that is an advantage because they have the time to do different designs and become creative in their work," she said.

"Our showcase is simply to gear up women for our upcoming meeting and encourage them to make more handicraft work that can be displayed there."
