A yellow cotton cloth named for its instigator. Embroidered in blue, "Effie Edna Smith Port Broughton 1980" is centred on the cloth under a brown arch or semicircle. Multicoloured signatures encircle this text and cover the cloth. Cotton thread was used to work the signatures in stem and back stitch. The cloth has a machine stitched scalloped border.
Theme and Purpose
Commemorative. The cloth commemorates all the Meals on Wheels volunteers who visited Effie. Each volunteer was asked to sign the cloth and Mrs Cavell Bennier then embroidered the signatures.
