Uthando Doll Project

Please return your finished Uthando Dolls this Saturday. If you haven't finished - its's not a problem we will have another collection day early next year. We are collecting them now as Uthando have a sea container going to South Africa early in November.

We are really looking forward to seeing the amazing clothes, bags and jewellery you have created.
Tags & hessian are available at Toss n Tell this Saturday. Full info and explanations are on the web site.
The Christmas Markets at Goolugatup Heathcote are coming up fast! The Perth Makers Market page is up on the website under the Members login with all the details, the entry fee payment process, the inventory form and marketing image downloads. We have refined a couple of aspects of the process:
  • A slight change to the inventory form - addition of a quantity column
  • Available now - small Feltwest tags for jewellery.
  • Unsold items to be picked up form the markets.
  • Hessian strips to attach and display jewellery items.

Popup Shop & Demo

We are very please to have Sara from Unicorn Fibres who will bring her shop to Toss n Tell, and sharing insights into some of the newer products – Carded wool batts and her exclusive Uniblends. She will be explaining the various batt & fibre types, with thoughts, tips & techniques on their use – from structural to lacy. A good touch and feel opportunity, with plenty of samples and ideas to inspire you to move beyond more familiar fibres!
Unicorn Fibres specialises in fibre and fabric for felt makers with a range that includes Merino, Corriedale, viscose and blended roving, needle felting tools and her hand dyed Margilan silk & cotton gauze. With over 300 products, a limited range will be available on the day when the doors open, but website purchases using the local pickup option may be collected at the meeting.
Any queries, please contact Sara:

Abstract to Concrete - Marks Over Time

Last month's session about our theme generated an amazing amount of ideas and this month we will have an activity to help translate abstract ideas into concrete projects. Or maybe they other way round!?
9:30am - Doors Open
9:45am – Toss n Tell
11:00am – Marks Over Time Sessions Abstract to Concrete
11:15am – Batts & Blends

And of course, you can always ask questions about any part of the exhibition or collaboration project.

See you Saturday
