Show & tell...

Today we're having a day off. A day just for us. To 'recover' from the big show(s).

Yesterday's show was fun. It took some time and coordination to get all the models dressed and lined up (gosh the place was a mad house for a while) but once that was all sorted it went pretty smooth. Ink & Spindle made 9 skirts for the show and we'll get them back so we can wear them :)

We also made some canvasses and other cool things for the exhibition, which will be on at NMBQ, 57 Smith street, Fitzroy until the 22nd of March 2009. Go and have a look, there's great work on show and all made ethically and locally.

... and here's what I came home with from the Stitches & Craft show

Henry le oobee (ooh la la, he's French) and a zipper mouth monster (it says 'Bite me')

We all did swaps, how nice is that. Thanks Leslie. Thanks Jodie. You both rock! These softies totally make my day, every day. Henry is very charming and zipper mouth monster is hilarious, I'm in lurve :)

Check Soozs' blog to see all the photo's of the show and the great blogger dinner she organised. Thanks Sooz, it was fun and yummie too! We all brought something for a swap too, what else could I bring but fabric ;) and in return I received a free tap dancing lession from Miss Caroline Tap Dance. That's going to be so much fun, and Teegs is coming with me.

... and to top it off. I updated the shop with some leftover stock. Bloem in Charcoal and Deep Red are back, as well as some new mixpacks. I have a new colourway to add too, but I haven't had time to photograph it yet.

This is a great post! Would you be interested in seeing your work about local places syndicated on local news blogs? See Fitzroy and Brunswick for examples. Many local bloggers are contributing. There's no advertising and no exploitation of your content - just a convenient way for local people to read local news. To contribute please add suburb categories, tags or labels to your posts, such as 'Fitzroy', 'Brunswick', etc and let me know you've done this. RSS feeds for these tags are created and added to the local news sites. You may find that syndication brings more traffic to your blog and more comments from readers!

I found your blogg through sprout designs website. I just wanted to tell you I really like all your fabrics. I have bought the orange car fabric through Garniture in denmark.

If you want to see pictures of our childrens playroom with flags and cushions with the fabric you can look here:


I live in sweden and the blog is in swedish.

Best regards
