"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."
