Curious Crafter Crochet Class - Crikey!

The class was a great success, everything we were hoping for and more! The night kicked off with inspirational teacher Sophie taking the class through the basics and then the curious crafters hooked in (pun totally intended) and with a little gentle guidance EVERYONE left with a granny square that they made themselves!

So nice to get together with such a great bunch of ladies, learn something new, make new friends, have a cuppa and a bite to eat - what could be better really?

Big thanks to Renea and Sophie for their help in organising and teaching the class and being such nice people and lovely friends -  this is the start of something great.

Now let's have a look at some pictures of the night - courtesy of Renea!

We have already got enough numbers for another crochet class which is very exciting, hope it's as good as the first!

Have a look at the very special new bags we have in store. They are designed by Geelong girl Lauren Ferry and made in Australia using leather, wooden  panels and vintage fabrics - sigh......dreamy.

We have all the designs in the above picture and one in full super soft tan leather (below), I have picked mine out - have you?

Autumn is officially here!

It actually feels like Autumn today, pulling out the cardies and thinking about what we are going to wear this winter?! Hmmmm....let's see...

If only we were that cool!

Now that it is getting cooler you can go do some picking from the garden and we have the perfect vessel to house them!!!! These porcelain pieces are handmade in Melbourne by Angus & Celeste featuring flora and fauna artworks - they look pretty autumnal.
