Fibres West

As some of you know, one of my other passions is textile art, focusing on freehand machine embroidery. The image above is of one of my pieces, called Resonance, that was created usung some of the techniques I shall be teaching.
I am afraid I have been very lax in promoting that I have been asked to teach at a 5 day residential workshop, Fibres West this October, down in Bunbury. I am very honoured to have been asked as I'll be teaching along with some international experts in other textile fields.
There are still places available in many of the workshops, including mine which is

Expressionist Threads - Painterly Techniques in Applique and Machine Embroidery
Full workshop description is here and you can follow the links to the other workshops and brochure.

It is a fully residential programme held at Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School and the full 5 days, including workshop and full accomodation & food is $865 per person.

Market this Sunday

The wonderful Made on the Left markets are on again this Sunday 10th July and they have a new market venue in the City. We'll all be upstairs (with lift & escalator access) of 140 William St by the new train station entrance. Click here for a map
It's a much larger venue, so there will be even more yummy crafty stalls to peruse. The MOTL rule of goods having to be made by the stallholder themselves is being strictly upheld, so that's more locally made goodies to choose from.
While you're in town, you'll also be able to pop by our Montage pop-up shop on the other side of the railway at 244 William St!
I'll be will be having a clearance section on the Osmosis stall, making room for some new stock to be launched later in the year, so come down and see what's on offer!
