Carol Wilkes and more

Carol Wilkes' wonderful creation won the Art U Wear competition sponsored by Bernina and Expertise Events  shown at the Textile Art Festival in Brisbane (and I do believe at the craft show in Melbourne this week).  Here she is creating away like crazy in her very tidy studio in Maleny where one day I hope to visit. You can read all about her creation and see lots of piccies here 
for her Alice in Wonderland - Hoo-R-U

I have had loads and loads and loads of emails and phone calls about the fact that TAF is not on next year as run by Expertise Events. It must not die is what I and others are saying......

Tonight we are off to dinner with Luigi and Martine - we haven't seen them for a while so it will be great to catch up. My feet are freezing......

Grant is sailing at the Volvo Laser SB3 World Championships 2010 at Torbole on Lake Garda on a boat called 3 Sad Old Blokes - he is the bowman and yesterday they had a 3rd, a 5th and and 1st.

What a pristine studio Carol Wilkes has and her work is spectacular. You'll have to borrow a pair of Ian's socks to warm your feet up. Grant and his mates need to rename that boat - they're still lads - but maybe it's bringing them luck.

Congrats to Grant, but I agree with Heather, he is a long way from being a sad old bloke!
I was devastated to read that TAF has been cancelled, I wish someone else could run it as it is such a brilliant idea. I have emailed them immediately with my thoughts. Cheers, Robin

Hi! dale,

Congrats to Grant despite the name they are doing well. Thanks for the Carol Wilkes link, boy what a tidy work shop.
