Saturday morning means the Brickworks Farmers Market for me.
Still working on my quirky space.
Ezra, who runs Chez Vous bought my breakfast to me personally!! Its just about my favorite meal of the week.
Dan Gallagher set up next to me, demonstrating some of his techniques. He nearly sold out of these smashing trugs that he makes. He also bought along this wonderful courting chair and an ever so comfortable Windsor chair.
This week I was able to have a quick whizz around the farmers at the other end of the Pavillion.
A wee plan for my site. I am inviting the public for a 'show and tell' each week.
This is what I have come up with so far.
Textiles on the Terrace Show and Tell....9-10 am (before I get tired and before music starts)
Quilts.....Old and new. Bring in your family heirlooms or something you have made. Perhaps a work in progress, even a block.
Blankets......Do you have a blanket you love from anywhere in the world. Are you a weaver? Lets look at old labels and talk about what you consider a blanket to be.
Vintage Scarves....an ideal textile to collect. Relatively cheap, infinite variety and easy to store. Wear your favorite.
Sweaters and knitting.....Do you have a sweater from the Fair Isles, Scandinavia or Nova Scotia? Mittens from Estonia perhaps. Bring your knitting along too. We can even have a yarn/pattern swap. Vintage knitting patterns anyone?
What do you think? Any suggestions more than welcome.
