Market Frenzy

My blog has been somewhat neglected, I know.  However, there is a good excuse.  On the weekend of 4-5 September I will be involved in two events.

First of all on Saturday 4 September there's the BrisStyle Indie Designers' Market and I am more or less permanently chained to my Bernina in the hope of producing new stock.

This is the back view of a little sundress I have made for the market.  It's a voile fabric I bought in Sydney a couple of weeks back at my favourite fabric shop, Tessuti

If you are coming to the market, please drop by and say hello.  I'll be inside the hall and would be delighted to see you.  It promises to be loads of fun and there will be music and food keep up your energy as you take in the exciting atmosphere.

The second event of the weekend will be Schoolhouse Quilters' 2010 Biennial Exhibition on 4-5 September at historic Brookfield Hall, Brookfield.

I have seen some of the quilts that will be on show and they are absolutely stunning.  The refreshments room will cater to your needs with delicious freshly made sandwiches, cakes, scones and slices, and the sales room will be full of beautiful handmade goodies created by Schoolhouse members.  You can read more about it here.

I will be there on Sunday (unless my split personality manages to manifest itself on Saturday as well) selling my children's clothing in the salesroom and again, I'd be delighted to see you.

I was a little amazed to discover a rush of views on my Etsy shop on Monday, with a few hundred hits on this little cushion, along with several hearts.  After some clever detective work I found that it was featured on Etsy's blog, The Storque.   You have to scroll waaaay down, but there it is - I do the dance of joy.  With all this attention, did the cushion sell?  Nup.  But at least I've had my 15 minutes of fame.

You sure have a busy weekend coming up! I hope to make it along for some shopping at the BrisStyle market. Although it's on the same weekend as RedFest which I'm meant to be going to as well. So annoying when too many good things are on at the same time. One of those split personalities could come in handy :)

A big congrats on the Etsy Storque feature! Woohoo!
