stitches & craft
post around here have been a bit scattered lately, my apologies, but i've been going a bit crazy getting things ready for the big show next week. yes, i've mentioned the stitches & craft show in passing over the last few weeks but here're all the details. the show has been taken over by the amazing team at living creatively and they've put a ton of thought into how to make it a true reflection on what is currently happening in the craft world. aside from some amazing retailers, there are all sorts of fun classes and workshops you can sign up for, craft bars to work on quick creative projects, a space set up for blogging, a children's craft centre, even an area called project rescue where you can ask for advice if you've hit a snag in your crafty endeavours.
i'm sharing a space with my buddy dana, who designs gorgeous, vintage inspired kid's wear with her label, twiglet , and we're splitting the manning of the stall between us. i'll be there in the afternoon wednesday, thursday and friday with a super cute baby strapped to my chest and then all day saturday without the little cherub (8 hours in the ergo might be a bit much for both of us). on sunday dana will be there hawking our wares while i take a load of soft toys and quilty goodness over to hawthorn town hall for mathilda's market (notice i made sure to mention hawthorn town hall, it's not in malvern like last time). so make sure you stop by and say hi, come meet a whole new slew of oobees and fleurs, see the quilts up close and pick yourself up a playmat pattern for future sewing fun : )
