ROSEWOOD is well known for its quilting community and proud poultry history.

So it came as no surprise to see the largest number of needlework exhibits at any Brisbane Valley or West Moreton show at Rosewood Show at the weekend.

Secretary Kate Lenihan said more than 700 sewing entries and 600 poultry exhibits were received in the pavilions - the most in the show's 132-year history.

Thousands flocked through the gates for the three-day event, which was blessed with glorious weather on Saturday and Sunday.

Ms Lenihan said wet grounds from Friday's rain caused the cancellation of the showjumping, but it didn't stop the constant flow of families.

She said a hive of activity accompanied the Ashton's Circus big-top, which proved a huge success as a first at the Rosewood Show.
