Mildura CraftAlive was held in a new location this year – the Sport and Community Centre at Irymple.  As the show was timed to coincide with the Country Music Festival, there were a large number of visitors in town, some of whom made their way to the show.

One of my students over the weekend was from Queensland….she had been away from her home base for several months and was on her way home when we met.  The fabric postcards concept really appealed to her as something she could do whilst traveling.

Del was hooked from the very beginning and now is very keen to become involved in postcard exchanges. I decided I would make and send her a card from Broken Hill if I wasn’t too busy.

Del's Card

Del’s card had a strip pieced fabric base, a layer of loose threads, braid and ric rac covered with black tulle  topped off with some machine stitched detail. She used a variagated thread that combined lime, yellow and orange which looked fantastic!
