From Warrnambool to Watsonia they came, from Phillip Island to Preston they came,  from Ballarat to Bentleigh, Mt Macedon to Mt Dandenong 140 individuals from 61 locations all united by a common thread, the creation of The Melbourne Reef!!!
Thank you to everyone of you!
It's all getting very exciting now, crochet pieces have been arriving almost daily in preparation for our upcoming exhibition. We have well over 1,000 pieces of crochet coral. An outstanding effort!!
You should all give yourselves a big pat on the back.
We took possession of the Gallery space yesterday - more like a take over - boxes & suitcases full  of crochet everywhere!  The mammoth task of sorting has begun and the creation of the foundation for the display has begun........
When can you see it ? Not just yet.....you need to wait just a little bit longer.
 Exhibition Dates: 9th October  2010 - 9th January 2011
See you there.
