My city is in flood crisis

I am reactivating my blog to let my readers about the current situation in my city, Brisbane Australia.

You may have seen in the news that  Brisbane is in the midst of a flood crisis.

If anyone can donate to the Premier’s Flood Appeal your contribution would be gratefully accepted.

My Etsy street team is also running its very own flood appeal with all proceeds going directly to the Premiers Flood Appeal

It was a great experience to attend the BiDE (Brisbane Indie Designers Exhibition) and BrisStyle website launch on Friday. There were lots of familiar faces there –  all admiring the wonderful items handcrafted by BrisStyle members display whilst being entertained with great  live music and munching delicious cupcakes.

Saviours of the Lost Arts

If you are in Brisbane over the next couple of weeks try to get along to Saviours of the Lost Arts.

It is a workshops series run by the Brisbane City Council which focuses on arts & crafts for seniors, young & emerging craft workers, and professional artisans.

The seriers features make & takes, craft demonstrations and panel discussions around a variety of issues. Some of our very own BrisStylers (from my BrisStyle group) will be presenting!!

There are day time, night time and weekend activities so there should be something you can get along to….

Another big highlight (which I am really looking forward to) is the Craft Fair in King George Square. It is on Tuesday 1st June from 10-6pm. There will be lots of stalls with crafty people selling their wares, and demonstrating their skills.

The best thing is that everything is free!!

Next BrisStyle Indie Designer Market June 5th

Next market coming up on June 5th.

I am madly sewing, crocheting, labelling….

to get my range of wearables – clothing, jewellery and accessories

ready for the market.

It should be great!

More posts about this to follow!

A great day at the BiMC Market!

Thank you to all those who visited me (& purchased from me!) at the BiMC market yesterday.

but one of the other stallholders did! So when those pics arrive I will add them here asap!

Fantastic autumn weather – Brisbane at this time of the year is fabulous
