Modern Australian Textiles

Thanks to Pip from Meet Me At Mikes I am involved in the Modern Australian Textiles exhibition at Nest Studios in Croydon, Adelaide. It is a shame Melbourne is too far away as I wish I could go to the opening night on the 4th of July. I've put some bird fabric in and hopefully it looks okay next to all the super talent that is involved. Having a look at the websites for the other designers involved was really inspiring and I suggest spending some time with a cup of tea and your feet up as you might want to spend a while because the work is amazing. The other designers are: Helena Gieger, Nicola Cerini, Publisher Textiles, Pip Willy, Umbrella Prints and Laughing Bird Textiles.

If you pop over the Craft City Melbourne Blog you will see I got a Craft City Citizenship Award. I'm really honored and the other people who had won are all such talented ladies. The blog is fantastic, I have already found some contacts and shops that I have been wishing I could find and I know more will come. Whenever I talk to artists, designers and crafters I always gather such great information about products, where to find them, places to go to and new techniques I have not thought of and so it is good to have a blog to find out all that information in one place.

Another lovely blog called
Lastee did a feature on my stuff. They just started out this month but the website has a great look and feel to it so one to keep your eye on.

Lastly, if you're wandering around Fitzroy tomorrow pop by Rose Street and say hello. It says it is meant to rain so I am hoping that doesn't happen until after 5.20pm when I've loaded my car up, the heating from under the steering wheel is on full and my legs are toastie and I'm wondering why I am driving down Hoddle Street when I know Football is on at the MCG.
