The 2016 Maleny Knitfest is now done & dusted… check out some pics here… How wonderful to have so many local, talented artists coming together to share their expertise with workshops & demonstrations in all things fibre. Being the first one of its kind there were quite a few hiccups but I’m sure everyone learnt a lot & all the wrinkles will be ironed out for next time… The town looked fabulous yarn bombed from top to toe. Congratulations to all the volunteers & organisers who worked tirelessly to get it all done.  I saw so many people taking photos in front of trees, cows &, of course, the controversial cannon… A talking point for some time, I’m sure.

On behalf of Lynne Hall & myself, I’d like to thank all the ladies who attended our ‘Scrumpling Workshop’. A lovely group who weren’t afraid to jump in & have a go… I hope you’re all inspired & overflowing with creative juices…

A big thank you also to everyone who participated in my ’10 Novelty Stitch Sampler’… I trust you all had a great time, leant some new interesting stitches & came away enthused to create your own projects…

&… A small drum roll please…I’m particularly honoured & proud to have won 1st  & 2nd prize in the Tea Cosy competition & 2nd prize in the Scarf Competition.
