If you have been to Precious Purl, you may have wondered just what was behind the screen dividing the mezzanine space??
It was the accumulation of many years of hoarding by our Landlord!! With some gentle persuasion the STUFF was rearranged, not necessarily thrown out, to make a great space for our Felting Play Day yesterday.
So, in spite of the very wet weather, we had a great demonstration and play throughout the day with enthusiastic beginners of all ages. We plan to do this again if you missed out this time.
A big thank you to Catherine of Feltazia, for sharing her expertise and enthusiasm. She even gave me a gentle nudge to do the Nuno felted scarf/wrap I had been planning for some time. I will show you the finished piece next post - it looks great!

A wonderful new venue for Textile/Fibre lovers and more, has recently opened at 1158 Toorak Rd Camberwell. (Mel. Ref 60 C6) "Open Drawer" is the brain child of Robyn Steel-Strickland and Prue Barridge and this promises to be a "must visit" venue if you are interested in sewing, embroidery, felting, knitting, crochet, jewellery, dyeing and more. This is a wonderful space with classrooms and gallery, along with the retail area where you can purchase distinctive giftware, garments & accessories, jewellery, homewares, art works and more.

One of the partners of Precious Purl (and it wasn't me!) had a BIG Birthday celebration yesterday with a great family gathering in the Botanical Gardens. It was such a beautiful day, I think a large percentage of Melbourne's population was there also. We found a huge, shady Liquidamber under which we could celebrate with gorgeous Cake & Champers. The cake was Cointreau, lemon curd and white chocolate decorated with real Rose buds and made at The French Lettuce in Nicholson St - just divine!
