reconstituted woollies ready for the BiECO
wimcee's next market is something very different - brisStyle's first ever eco market, on Saturday July 10th, at St Augustine's church hall and grounds on Racecourse Road, Ascot. Local etsians will be amazing us all with a wide range of upcycled, repurposed and vintage wares. While most of my usual stock is made from new fabrics and fibres, I have previously offered a few eco-friendly pieces, so the BiECO is a wonderful opportunity to devote extra time and energy to upcycled denims, reconstituted and embellished woollies, and all manner of wimcee-cal numbers put together from my supply of vintage fabrics, buttons, ribbons, trims and scraps. As usual, just never quite enough hours in the day and days in the week to make good all the ideas I'd like to try out, but so much fun -!

Mathilda mayhem

Another flurry of couturier activity, so to speak, with Mathilda's Market this Saturday (19/6/10) at Eagle Farm Race Course, Ascot, Brisbane, from 9 am to 1 pm...the first time I've been at Mathilda in the new venue, so looking forward to seeing how it all works, for them and for me. Lots of colour in my latest work (when was there never) with more skirts, more soft toys, more trousers and knits. Even if you have no small people yourself, Mathilda's really is an ideal shopping ground for gifts that are different and of a  high quality, so worth a look. And a preview of wimcee...

chicka chic

After a long but rewarding day taking part in Brisbane's Saviours of the Lost Arts Fair on Tuesday, fingers and toes are crossed for a beautiful winter's day for the BrisStyle indie Designers' Market this Saturday...and wimcee will be there with more even more fiesta-rama goodies, including more fabric-covered journals for catching the moment in prose or image form, and some new fabric brooches to dress up the most neutral woolly cardie or coat.
