How Hot ?

Many shoppers took advantage of the early opening hours for the February Handmade Upmarket and got out early to beat the 40 degree + heat on Saturday. Despite this and the multicultural festival drawing 1000’s it was a very successful day. Many comments were made on the quality and range of the stalls on the day. Stay posted for some pictures soon.

Competition Winners

Congratulations go to Adele who was the winner of the lucky door prize on the day.
We ended up with so many beautiful goodies for the hamper that we divided it into two. The winners are Po and Judi who were delighted when I called them.

We made $1292.85 for MND on the day, a big thank you to all the stall holders who donated the prizes and of course to everyone who bought tickets. This takes our total raised so far to an amazing $3997.85

Yes they will be at Handmade 🙂

There will be live music from 3pm pm on the lawns of Albert Hall.

Grab a glass of wine, great food, a chai or coffee and sit back and listen to the “pink haired girls ” they feature Paul Anderson ( ex treedad ) and Dave sparks ( rock legend ) plus the percussive talents of Susan Milligan.

They have star billing at this years cobargo folk festival, and have been invited to play guest spots at many south coast musical events.

They promise a cool laid back but dynamic mix of folk, rock & blues.

We promise a great day out!

Perhaps camoflaguing Jennie’s email address from the spammers would be an idea, or poptop’s email won’t be the only one coming her way…?

Jonathon Reynolds, whilst I can understand the US government’s want to make sure the items are safe, it certainly will kill off the ‘homemade’ market in the US. I hope things are underway in Oz to make things more reasonable.

Longer opening hours is pretty cool. So people can go straight from Gorman House Markets to Handmade.

Last time there was a stall that sold crocheted cupcakes and similar (they were out the side of the Hall). I can’t spot them on the Handmade website, do you have contact for them?

I’m looking for someone (anyone) who could make me a Sackboy (from LittleBigPlanet).

Any thoughts or leads to a creative crocheter or knitter who will consider such a commission would be welcome.
