All set up


Ready for a full-on two days!

How to be sustainable


  1. Have friends who find old mannequins at the dump (2 found so far).
  2. Discover some fabric in a local charity shop.
  3. Eco dye some vintage silk.
  4. Then use a vintage pattern for the skirt and a minimal waste pattern (Shape Shape 2) for the vest!

I seem to have a thing about circles this year!

Slow stitching the last of 4 textile scrolls. Eco dyed vintage wool blanket and linen or cotton; hand stitched. 

‘Le Dress’

Now on display in my studio window (my studio is attached to the gallery). I eco dyed the silk for couturier Rudolf Ramseyer; dress commissioned for Miss Universe Australia entrant Stephanie King. Sponsored by Ruche Fabrics, Launceston.
