The garage sale is done! just a trip to the op-shop required tomorrow to get rid of the last of it.
The Geelong Fibre Forum was fantastic and inspirational and I soooo want to go next year!!
The football is over (shhhh!! Geelong lost)
....and it's almost time to start a new week.
So about the forum....
I met up with Jeana and her daughter from Unbecoming Lily at the forum and had a great couple of hours chatting and admiring and drinking everything in. I also introduced Jeana to my 3 favourite places to shop for textile stuff:
- Artisan Books - is it bad that the guy who owns the bookshop knows me by name?...
- The Thread Studio - a Perth based mail order (web-order) business that "specialises in unusual and interesting embroidery threads and textile art requirements" run by Dale who blogs at Downunderdale ; and
- Beautiful Silks - a supplier of fabulous silk fabrics of all types who encouraged us to "feel and touch" (probably knowing that we would be unable to resist if we did - she was sooo right!)
I checked out the exhibition "After India" and saw the Mongolian Yurt and the inflatable sculptures by Evelyn Roth about the grounds.
And I browsed the works made by the lucky people who attended the forum for the week.
I know that I missed a few things but I enjoyed what I saw and again vow that I will find a way to be there next year (promises, promises...).
