Stitches and Craft Show - Brisbane

Nothing beats a day at a good show with friends.
Here are Maggie and Sandra looking bright and perky (note the HUGE knitting sculpture behind them) - Merle is running late!We had the best time. Arrived at 10am, left about 20 minutes before closing time. It was great to see different ideas -
  • craft bars - belly up to the bar and try something new like knitting, stitching etc
  • incubator - the chance to see some cool new designers and their products
  • sculptures/art - funky and interesting art to inspire
The aisles were nice and wide, the vendors were friendly, and the atmosphere was easy-going. I loved it.

I found pure wool felt in yummy colours from Winterwood.
I bought a great wrap skirt pattern from ink&spindle.
I fell in love with this vest by Jane of The Fibre Hut (pattern to be published in June).
This is one of the art exhibits.
I was dying to see this dress in real life - just so fabulous!! Made by Jodie.
Even the loos had a fabric theme!
