Here are some photos from our very successful 2015 Open Day.

As we get closer to our 2015 Open Day on Tuesday, 16 June at the Redland Performing Arts Centre, 2-16 Middle Street, Cleveland (10am – 2pm), I thought I’d feature some of our traders.

Kimberly from Earth & Stone Creations is a new trader with an exciting range of beautiful pottery yarn bowls and stitch markers. If you’re looking for a particular colour why not contact Kimberly prior to the event as she may be able to whip up one for you and bring it along. Kimberly can be contacted via email at kimberlydawnartistry@gmail.com. Check out her website for all her wonderful creations. Trust me, her yarn bowls sell like hotcakes so get in early. I LOVE mine (the green one below)!

Some of our other regular traders are Chantelle from Fiberific, Ursula from BB Yarn Supply (lots of weaving supplies), Gold Coast Spinners & Weavers (lots of fibre), alpaca fleece, members’ handmade goods for sale, second hand stall, Sandra’s ragmatting demonstration plus of course Owen’s fantastic array of antique spinning wheels. Owen is known as Wheelsmith on Ravelry and you’ll find lots of his comments in the antique spinning wheels forums.

This will be a fibre-lover’s paradise!

Remember, we are at a brand new venue this year which is a lot larger.

See you there!!
