Applying for the first BiDM for 2010

The first BiDM for 2010 is coming up fassssst…

BiDM (which stands for Brisbane Indie Designers Market) is the fantastic market organised by my local Etsy team BrisStyle (etsy.com)

I just received the email yesterday with the application details & sent it straight back…..hope I get in!

The first one for the year is on Saturday 6th March….not long to go now. It hardly seems like any time at all since the very successful market we had on Dec 5th last year. Time has flown soooo fast over the holidays. I have been working on some projects over the break but lots of them are still WIPs (works-in-progress) or really just mere ideas in my head!

I will be hope to be creating a mixed range of goodies for the day – vests for children and women, accessories and jewellery. All made by me with a mix of sewing, crochet, applique and more….

I will keep you posted, dear reader, as to how it all goes!

Another successful BiDM!

What a truly fantastic day I had last Saturday at the BiDM (BrisStyle Indie Designers Market)

Beautiful Brissie weather

Fantastic crowds of enthusiastic shoppers

Awesome organisation by the committee – particularly the wonderful Helen of ruby2gogo

Looking forward to next year’s markets!!!
