On Saturday I ventured out to the Brisbane Stitches and Craft Show. I thought that I would go by myself so that I could peruse the stalls and activities at my leisure. However, little Betsy and Mei-Ling Maisie dolls insisted on coming along too.
A couple of my fellow BrisStyle girls had stalls in the incubator.
I have never seen Helen without her smile!
I bought a Ruby 2 Go Go t shirt transfer. Hmm, must consider Maisie Doll t shirt transfers. Or even gocco images on shirts.
Also met the very sweet dear fii.
I finally got the chance to see documentary Handmade Nation.
You simply must see this film. Take your friends, take your family, take your work colleagues...so they can finally understand what you are all about as a crafter. Being able to see this film was worth the admission price to the Stitches and Craft Fair, alone. So inspirational. Can't see the movie?? Buy the book!
This encouraged me to spend some time at the 'Why Don't You...Tell us your Craft Secret?' wall, reading all the serious and not so serious craft secrets.
My craft secret is not so secret...but I had to contribute.
I purchased some lovely Japanese fabric from Amitie for more Kokeshi Dolls.
Lastly, I had the pleasure of volunteering on the Mixtape stall. Justine trusted Mei-Ling, Betsy and I to sell subscriptions to her fantastic zine as well as selling lots of other nice things on her stall.
Fabric covered buttons/badges were very popular.
It was a good day all round. The little Maisies were very well behaved and very polite to all customers!
