On Holidays...Bendi here we come!

We're on holiday in wintery Victoria and it's cold and wet here too, but not yet snowing!  Over the weekend I visited Wangaratta for the Stitched Up Festival and saw the fantastic and inspirational exhibition of the finalists and winner of the Wangaratta Textile Prize - awesome!

This next weekend it's off to the Bendigo Sheep and Wool 5th...can't wait.   It's great as I will be helping one of our Makers - the lovely and talented Sue Evans with her stand on the Friday.  Sue was invited to demonstrate and sell her unique little felted vessels after winning prizes at previous Bendis for her innovative felted art wear and vessels.  We're also attending the Women @ Wool luncheon on the Friday - food, fashion, fabulous wool! Going back again on the Saturday with SigOther to feel fleece and eye the woollies on legs.   Piccies coming......
