The Australasian Quilt Convention is happening in Melbourne next week… 14th – 17th April. How I love a craft show! All that creative energy… not to mention the huge array of goodies available to see. It's always fun, bringing home a little something for the "stash", but that's not usually the best bit! By far, the fondest memories I have of these events are of the people I meet. There's nothing better than feeling immersed in the company of creative women. I always learn something. I almost always walk away feeling encouraged, inspired and happy to be a part of the Australian craft community.
Will I see you there? Please come and say hi. You can find me at "The Patchwork Teahouse" stand. I'm hoping to have my latest design with me (if my fingers are able to stitch quickly enough)… here's a very small peek.
The internet is a wonderful thing, but honestly… it can all feel a little "removed" from the real world. I love having the opportunity to meet people face to face… other designers, patchwork store owners/friends, quilting guild members, sisters who sew together, Mum's sewing for their kids, people new to sewing, women accessorised from head to toe in "patchwork bling"…. well you get the idea.
In a state of "Quilt Convention" anticipation,
