In 1975 local artist Leonie Bell called a public meeting inviting anyone interested in forming a craft group to attend. 300 people turned up and they formed the Manning Valley Creative Centre which was later changed to Taree Craft Centre. They first set up from the Northern Champion Building site in Pulteney Street and then to the old School house at Pampoolah. More moves took place; the old church hall at Chatham, rooms under the Grandstand in Taree Park, then a move to Taree North and, because of early Craftathon Shows, the group was able to purchase the Heritage Cottage. Lots of members formed working teams who helped renovate the old cottage. Further fundraising, Craftathon profits and Govt Grants saw the cottage transformed with the gift shop, classrooms and the Cafe' as it is today. Numerous exhibitions were held by the group in the last 20 years to assist others in our community and soldiers overseas. Our Community Crafters are still making items to help the local area and we have regular patchwork exhibitions and and Art Show coming this year. We now have 3 outlets for members to sell their crafts - the Cottage Gift Shop, The Taree North Gift Shop and a small shop in Centrepoint Arcade. Our class rooms offer a variety of different crafts to learn as well as being a great venue for social days where members can come and share a craft and a cuppa with each other.
