There are just under 2 weeks to go until the next Handmade market & things are really coming along nicely.

For all of you who cannot make the 7th @ Albert Hall we will be having a preview at the Canberra Centre this Sat the 31st. Just outside smiggle on the ground floor we will have approx 10 of the designers displaying their fabulous designs. We will also be raising money for MND. Come alsong and say hello!

For more details on what designers will be attending Handmade, the competitions and all the news check out the website and the blog

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.

Yes Rockstars & Royalty will indeed be centre stage again along with Tango & James (Canberra’s got style queen)

Here’s a link to a recent Ninaribena blog entry offering a sneak preview of her preparations for the upcoming Handmade Market on Feb 7.

Well that’s taken the fun out of it all!!

Lets hope it takes a while and that common sense prevails with both parliament and product safety.

But how long will it be until somebody in either in the local Assembly or Federal Parliament attempts to introduce protective legislation such as what they are proposing in the US?


An interesting read…

Good job, Market Girl! Sounds like just the kind of day to order!!

: )

Handmademarket 6:07 pm 12 Jan 09

You ladies are going to keep me busy here!!

So, I have ordered a 26 deg day, slight breeze, glorious sunshine all day.

The last market was the very first of many so as you can imagine lots of designers also waited to see what it was going to be like. The feb market has approx 25 new designers, some never seen in Canberra before at a market.

Yes Rockstars & Royalty will indeed be centre stage again along with Tango & James (Canberra’s got style queen)

Now as for space, a very clever person came up with a brilliant new floor plane that will not only allow more clever designers but WIDER isles for all you wonderful customers. Outdoors will be under the trees in the shade. There will hopefully be some live music in the afternoon, great food & wine so bring a picnic blanket and soak up the atmosphere.

Yes, here’s the Canberra’s Got Style review of Rockstars and Royalty. It’s not every day you come across somebody making Victorian gowns in this day and age.

A dry day would definitely be preferable. I wonder what they intend to do about the space issue?

poptop 4:12 pm 12 Jan 09

It was too small last time and they’ve got MORE retailers!!

Better put in an order for a dry day this time.

I hope they have the corsetry and Rock Star(?) photography people again. They were ruly interesting.

Granny 3:21 pm 12 Jan 09

Sure is, poptop, per .

phototext 3:17 pm 12 Jan 09

Where ?

Having never been to one nor heard about it, the location would be quite usefull information.

poptop 2:56 pm 12 Jan 09
