Handmade Hobart & A Surprise Win
I recently participated in the Handmade Hobart Market held on Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th May. This is a 2 day market held in the lovely St Peter's Hall at St Mary's College in Harrington St.
It was a lovely 2 days, although a little quiet but I got to meet some lovely customers and stallholders. One in particular who I wanted to mention here was Sarah from If Only I Had Chocolate. The night before the market, Sarah drew her blog giveaway and to my surprise, I was the winner. I won a lovely piece of fabric plus 2 very cute little wooden buttons - a cupcake & little red riding hood. By pure coincidence the fabric happens to be what I have used on my Babushka Applique Tees, so will come in handy and I'm going to glue a brooch back to the "Little Red Riding Hood" so I can wear her - too cute!

Sarah makes a lovely collection of toys & gifts, softies, brooches etc and is certainly very talented. Sorry it's taken my so long to mention you Sarah. Head over and take a look at her blog.

Unfortunately, this was the last Handmade Hobart Market, although we didn't know it at that stage. The next market was scheduled as a "Christmas in July" market however due to issues involving public liability insurance, the organisers had to make the very difficult decision of ceasing operation.
I'd just like to say a big thanks to Penni, Sue & Marg for their organisation of such a lovely market and hopefully we will continue to see them and their creative talents showcased at other Hobart markets.
