  • Made in Castlemaine. This sign I made says a lot about my making. It speaks of home, domestic crafts and quiet industry. 
This image is a grab from the new @castlemainebazaar TV ad (also on YouTube). The Bazaar is a great place to be part of. I have to be careful not to walk around when I restock as I invariably find my new must have item. Be it a pattern, book, piece of fabric or glass mannequin head (that I’m yet to decide to buy). Being a maker is a pretty quiet business by choice. I make things for so many different reasons and send them out into the world. Often the things I’m drawn to making are pretty unsexy items like bucket bags and firewood slings. They are things that you use at home, in distinctly quiet situations. But I hope they make a little tiny difference to your life. 
We makers connect with you by the objects we make. We’ll probably never meet, but it doesn’t matter. The connection has been made and our lives are that little bit richer for it.

  • Now on Etsy I have my Industrial Sewing Shop selling cut lengths of all my webbings and other hardware used in all the workshops products. 
These little rolls are off to California today.

  • Repairing swags is always more fun with pink fingernails.
  • More vintage canvas bucket bags slowly filtering through. I’m seriously stash busting here.
