Craft & Quilt Fair 2015 - I'm on Australian Tour!!!

Well, I think it's about time we announced that I have been invited to tour with 'Australia's No.1 Craft & Quilt Fair' as a Guest Artist for 2015! Following a successful and very enjoyable stint at the Brisbane Show in 2014, this year I will be found at:                              WA: Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre - May 20-24                                                  NSW: Sydney Exhibition Centre - June 17-21                                                              TAS: Silverdome, Launceston - July 10-12                                                                    VIC: Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre - July 23-26                                      ACT: Exhibition Park, Mitchell, Canberra Aug 6-9                                                         SA: Adelaide Event & Exhibition Centre Nov 5-8 
I will have many of my wearable art garments on display, including those that have been finalists in The World of WearableArt, and will be demonstrating some of the many techniques I use to create them. From feltmaking, to screen-printing, to free-motion embroidery, to leather moulding, it will all be there! 'Isolda', (left) my entry into the Avant Garde Section of the World of WearableArt 2014, made almost entirely from bridal offcuts from the studio of  award winning bridal designer Wendy Makin, will be there, as will Fimbria Figura, (right) my 2011 entry, featuring hand dyed and screenprinted silk organza.
I will also have a selection of dyed and printed silk scarves, shawls and camisoles for sale, as well as some of my felted creations.

I am also available to present workshops and artist talks in these regions before or after these dates, so do let me know if you are interested, before I book my tickets!! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone at these venues - it's going to be such an exciting year!!!


  1. Hi Svenja,
    Are you teaching any workshops on either side of the Adelaide show as I would love to do a workshop with you.

  2. So sorry Crystal - this comment went to a stranger folder in my email and I only just saw it! Don't worry, you didn't miss out on a workshop!
