Wendy Makin Fabric Sale!

So, since returning from Perth, there has been absolutely no respite. Sure, apparently I'm on a 1 week break from TAFE, but I have spent it immersed in the 'drier than desert sand' subject matter of my TAE qualification, which I kind of did let slide a little for a couple of weeks there - much to my regret...
On the weekend I had my dear Bunneh Jenelle over for a 'lesson' - not sure how, but we managed to
keep a straight face for the recording of a lesson in 'Calculating shrinkage in nuno felt for the creation of garments'. Stepson Liam will brave a lesson in free-machine embroidery this week, and next Sunday I will be teaching four lovely ladies some arashi and itajime shibori. This is the fun bit - then it's back to the final unit of 'Assessment', where I see a lot of excel matrixes - aaagh!
Some lovely news is that we have already booked next year's SvenJen adventure, which will be back to Ballarat for our third time, studying with Meghan O'Rourke 
and making anodised titanium jewellery. My apologies in advance for the blog entries which will result from that experience, for those of you who have just been perplexed by the recent three posts of the annual SvenJen/crazy Bunneh/'who actually speaks like that' story. It is but once a year, and yes, it is quite mad, but apart from that slight aberration, I promise to remain focussed on textiles!
Speaking of textiles, every fabric lover has something to do this Sunday, as Wendy Makin is holding another of her amazing fabric sales. You may have previously seen me here in raptures over bags of scraps from this fine establishment, and more recently, I picked up rolls of fabric at ridiculous prices here. Whilst I am almost unwilling to share this amazing resource, how can I deny you all this fabulous opportunity?! This is what I saw last time I was there - amazing rolls of Italian silk organza, embroidered and beaded laces - just delicious! A lot of it is silk too, so dyes beautifully. It's definitely worth a drive or even a flight!

  1. Hi Svenja. I have come across this post about the workroom fabric clearance and would like to know where is the best place to go to get updated when the next one or similar sales are being held. Thanks for your help. Leeanne
