Well the Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair is over for another year. I had a fun and busy week with my good friend Margaret and our trusty helper and friend Nikki.
It's always a feel good moment when people drop by the stand to show me the wonderful bags they've made from my patterns! If you've made one of my designs and would like to share a pic or 2, please feel free to post it on my Facebook page or send it in an email to me, I love to see what everyone's been making.
Have you been to a Craft Fair? They are so much fun, there is always so much to see and do! When things quiet down I love to go and do a little shopping myself, this time I purchased some beautiful wool to give to my Mum to knit me a scarf, she loves knitting.
August is going to be a busy month, Alaura and I will be heading off to Canberra for the Craft and Quilt Fair and then to Newcastle the following week for the Stitches and Craft Show. At both shows I'll be conducting my free half hour seminars on Quilt as you go and handbag making, I'll be giving lots of tips and advice as well as loads of inspiration! We'll also have Alaura's Appliqué Art designs on display. You can buy tickets and read all about it here http://www.craftfair.com.au/wp/Canberra/
The next exciting event is our first ever retreat with a great new design called the Retreat Bag.
Our retreat is all about just having a fun and creative weekend in a beautiful location with like minded people where you can sew to your hearts content with no cooking or housework to do all weekend! Ahh bliss! We are so excited that it's filling fast, there are now only 6 spaces available. You can find out more about it here: https://www.monicapooledesigns.com/copy-of-wholesale-1
I'm now on the flight home to get prepared for a busy and exciting month, have a great week everyone!
