"Made for you"

Now only 4 days until the opening night of the North Shore Craft Group's exhibition and sale. I've been a member for 3 years now and this year, the 55th, the show is entitled "Made for You".  It's always a wonderful display of handcrafted items covering ceramics, wood, leatherwork, textiles, glass, jewellery and so much more.

We always have a Challenge within the exhibition where each member creates one or two pieces in their field of craft, eg. textiles, ceramics, jewellery etc, to a specific theme and the public vote for their favourite piece.
This year it's rhythm and blues and I've created a couple of bags for the challenge, one of which was chosen to feature closeup on the invitation above.  It's amazing to see what everyone comes up with.

I've also been concentrating on more of my nunofelting work for this exhibition, with jackets and bags featuring nunofelted sections within various wool fabrics.

Would love to see you there at Ku-ring-gai Town Hall, Pymble this week if you can make it.
