I went along with a friend and had spent about an hour admiring all the lovely wool for sale. I could have spent even more time sifting through the amazing collection of vintage buttons for sale at one stall (damn, forget to get a business card!). Reminded me of looking through my Nana's special button tin when I was little!
I did buy some wool, looking through a "bargain bin" these 3 caught my eye, they were made for each other- ( to be made into a scarf or cowl).
The Pascoe Vale Spinners and Weavers annual show is coming up soon, next weekend in fact! Have a look at my post from June 1 last year for photos of some of the woolly loveliness!
Plus there is a weaving open day and exhibition next Saturday in Carlton. Maybe if I went along I could pick up some tips/ get inspired to try out the weaving loom kit I found at the op shop last year! ( ' cos I soooo need another craft project!)
I picked up a flyer at the yarn show today for a new "Natural Fibres Market" happening at the Queen Vic Market in July.
( Info via the that's Melbourne website - bit more detailed than the flyer)
Of course the amazing Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show is on again in July too-
If you are heading to the city tomorrow, the Markit it on -
And last but not least, I have just learnt about a new craft market in Essendon
Phew! Looks like a busy crafty time of the year!
