VISITORS from far-flung points around Australia gathered to enjoy the entertainment at the Jazz Lounge in Warwick at the weekend.

Self-confessed "festival-crawler" Jolanta Burek made the trip from Sydney to experience Jumpers and Jazz.

She said the quality of the festival matched others she had seen.

"It's a great atmosphere, it compares very well," she said.

"There's a real pride in the town and everyone's very friendly."

Sue Carpenter from Brisbane travelled with Geoff Richardson from Tamborine Mountain to take in the sights and sounds of the festival.

As a crafter herself, she was impressed by the art on display.

"I was amazed because I know the work that goes into it," she said.

"It's not just crochet, it's technical crocheting."

A Suitcase Rummage Market, a Picnic in the Park and Warwick Potters craft market were also held over the weekend to wrap up the Jumpers and Jazz festival.
