So, the past couple of weeks have been quite busy. We travelled to Adelaide for the craft & quilt fair...some lovely quilts but no photos (sign said photography was not allowed), and have increased my stash, but everything will be put to good use (eventually lol)

I did read that handmade is 'back in fashion' - I wonder why it ever went away. It would be nice if the number of entries increased but I wonder how we get people interested in sewing, embroidery, crochet & the like? Some groups run during the day (which is OK if you don't work), but how do you get younger ones interested when they maybe studying or have young children??? Then probably the cost of materials may also be out of their budget.....maybe at the shows we need a place for demonstrations of crafts...or leave some flyers with some names to contact if they want to learn. I just think in maybe 30 years time some of these crafts may all but die out in some communities.....Sad really
Not much else for now........thanks for reading...
