A huge thank you to all the organisers and volunteers at the show who made this all happen and also a huge thank you to Bree and Teagan of the Elisabeth Murdoch college , who have proven that yes, you can build a skyscraper of fibre !
It was an amazing experience being at the show again and seeing so many friends and fibre addicts and laughing and having an all round excellent time ! It was AMAZING!!! There, I said it..again ! lol
I was extremely happy to enable with new Navajo Spindles from the Lair of the Bearded Dragon made from ancient 45000 year old Kauri wood !!! and hand painted police box spindles !!!
THe new blend TUNDRA with 25% qiviut sold out in a day and a half, the batts sold out in a day not even, the pre felts were gone on sunday ! and ofcourse so were the Navajo spindels and the police box spindles! (I am taking orders btw for the Navajos, the police box spindels and the very special mulga slab supports)
Pictures will certainly say more than words so here they are: a slide show of Bendigo show fluffy goodness to be had in the Flower Shed !
however way you try to make it look nice, all nicely arranged...every time there seemed to be a fibre explosion!
Some people wanted to dive in and inhale (Katie the Mermaid sure did!lol)
