July What a month!!

It started with Marg & Maryanne's workshop in Watsonia. They are our pseudosphere specialists, the quality of the craftmanship from this group has to be seen to be believed. Thank you Marg & Maryanne, you are such gentle and patient teachers and a wonderful asset to our group.

Next up was the Made In Thornbury market. I met the most wonderful women there that will be joining our 'family'. I look forward to seeing their creations. Thank you to Ursulla for offering workshops at the Thornbury Neighbourhood House.  Anyone who lives out that way & wants to join in can contact Ursula on 9480 0466 for more information.

 Last, but not least - A big thank you to everyone who came to Burrinja last Saturday!! What an amazing effort by everyone. You should all be very proud of your creations. Dawn from Gembrook has almost created the entire toxic reef by herself!! What talent and imagination. You can tell that Ursula from Phillip Island has a background in embroidery, the delicacy of her workmanship is breathtaking. There are so many of you who have created the most amazing pieces. It was very inspiring seeing it all starting to come together.  I must admit that I was a bit concerned initially at the size of the space we had to fill. But thanks to the enthusiasm and dedication of the combined Melbourne community, I worry no more!!  It was wonderful watching you all looking at what others had done, admiring and appreciating each others work. This project certainly has created a wonderful new 'family' of crafters. We are going to have the most amazing exhibition.  The standard just keeps getting better and better.  Without each and every one of you The Melbourne Satellite Reef would not be so wonderfully diverse and vibrant. So I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making the dream come alive.
