  1. Does anyone know the finalists for this competion? I’m in Brisbane and it’ll be ages until it tours here, but everyone else gets to see the ones that are touring before i do :/

    • Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fair will be held July 26-29 and that will be the last voting. After that we will announce the winners, Good luck!

  2. Hi, It looks to me that for me to enter the fingers and toes competition it would need to be things for feet or hands, However I thought i would just ask anyway, if it is possible to enter Scarves and/ or hats as i am a milliner and make felt hats. Thank you for your time. Margaret

    • You are correct Margaret, fingers and toes only. So, mitts, gloves, socks slippers etc. I’m sure you will be able to make something fab in felt!

  3. How about that quilt. Congratulations on the sale. You should be very proud of yourself and what an effort. Just Beautiful. People how do not sew just don’t realize how much time and knowledge goes into these pieces of art. They should come into the same category as a painted work of art. I just love to see these stories around. should be more of them.
