My Creative Space 'warm up at the markets this winter' G I V E A W A Y

Greetings all,
The weeks are wizzing by & da dah, it's the quarterly Handmade Market in Canberra this Saturday.  I have to say i'm eerily relaxed about this market . . . & the hair clips circles which are forming on my studio floor??  Too busy to ponder why, how, who??
Very excitingly, i had an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald today for an Arts feature about my story book badges, why i love vintage books & if books can survive the new electronic age.  She asked what my pre-motherhood/ badge making career was (pharmacology) & i mentioned that my husband was the reader in the family & that he takes books to war.  Suddenly he seemed much more interesting & stole the limelight as the interview swung around to soldiers being prolific readers who carry books with their ammunition!! 
So this week's Creative Space is about a G I V E A W A Y & sharing the love of designers who i support & will ALL be available on my market stall this Saturday.  With Winter in the air my stall will be quite cosy this market, with knitting needles & woolly goodness. 
Art Viva Knitting needles; Japanese printed quirky fabric; Sheep's Clothing beanies & scarflettes; Yardage Design; Tania McCartney books + Kristen Doran Designs - her full range of screen printed & softie pattern awesomeness. 
Remember, this market i'm a 'craft enabler' as i haven't had time to sew lately with my work at Shop Handmade (which is a runaway success for my business)!!  So i'm helping others to get into DIY handmade.
Oh & the G I V E A W A Y - how about 2 pairs of Tasmanian Oak knitting needles, 2 sets of fabric hair clips, a dozen fabric covered buttons & 6 fat eighths of amazing Japanese printed fabrics??!!  I might even throw in some story book badges for good measure.  Good luck!!
Just join in the 'fun people who like Posie' to follow this blog & leave a comment here (international entries welcome).  Winner announced at next Thursday's Creative Space
with their booty all on display, ready to be shipped off to their wonderland. Back to my packaging, wish me luck, brrrrrr, think warm thoughts, love Posie

I want to know when they are going to make the crochet needle equivalents? I need fast results and crochet certainly delivers! And when do we get a finger update? Tx

Jen (Melei) said...

Oh, this is absolutely amazing, what a giveaway! I love all of the items but even though i don't knit i would love the knitting needles - i would just have them looking pretty in a jar or something.

notquitecrafty said...

What a lovely prize pack! Looking forward to shopping at the market tomorrow afternoon & will be looking for all your pretties.

Hope it is a beautiful crisp sunny winter day so you can keep warm.

Always Sunday said...

Good luck at the market, I'm sure you will have a great day and I am assuming your finger will be in tip-top condition. A pair of lovely knitting needles would be a welcome addition to my non-collection. It has been a very long time, I would love an excuse to get back to knitting again!:)

Sally said...

Wishing I was in Canberra to visit you at the market (even though I just know how cold it is) so that you can enable me!!!
Enable me!!!
