Made by a Mrs Gagle of Murray Bridge South Australia around 1970-1975, to raise funds for a school. Owned by Ella Jarvis. "We wondered if you would be interested in this Wagga I have and use over my lounge. About 20 years ago, as fund raising for a school in Murray Bridge, a lady was making them and selling them. Using scraps of material and old blankets for filling etc. Mrs Gagle made lots of them and they are scattered around Australia. Used a treadle sewing machine. Mrs Gagle would have been in her late 70s then."
[Ella Jarvis]
