On Sunday, Sofie came down from Sydney with her friend Debbie to see the show.  With Sofie on the stand demonstrating, I was able to snatch a couple of quick photos when things were quiet…. and there weren’t all that many opportunities!

Across the way from our stand was Catharina’s Country Collection – it was a rare site to see Catharina with time to stand still and listen to Linda taking about the Westalee Rulers and tools.



Another highly successful  craft event has been held at EPIC in Canberra and I have negotiated the roadworks on the Hume back home.

The crowd was larger than previous years and on the Scrapmatts stand we offered a range of product never seen in the national capital before… and it seems it was a great success with paper crafters of all persuasions.

Andrew and I were joined on the stand by Tony – who, by his own admission, had never heard of ATC’s.  Of course I had to make one especially for him to take home!

ATC for Tony

Just along the aisle from our stand were first time exhibitors at this show, the ladies from Waratah Fibres.  I found these wonderful bags of colour which I pounced on with plans to use it in my fabric postcards, however some of the orange found its way to the ATC.  This is hand dyed silk throwsters waste – delicious colours I can’t wait to do more with!

CraftAlive in Wagga is over for another year and by all accounts, it was a great success.  Numbers through the door were far more than last year and I hope all our visitors found something to tempt them.

Local craft groups were well represented – Riverina Woodworkers, Linden Patchwork and Needlework group, Wagga Machine Knitters, Wagga Potters Group and CWA all mounted great displays and demonstrations of their crafts.

Many of the stallholders have made their way straight to Canberra and are recuperating and repacking in preparation for the Canberra Craft and Quilt Fair which opens on Thursday at Exhibition Park in Canberra.

Maybe I will see you there as I will be demonstrating for Scrapmatts once again. Andrew tells me there are some brand new designs in the chipboard range being launched at this show so pop round and have a look.
