Searching out a Stallholder!!
Yay, we finally adjusted our diaries and made it to "Old Petrie Town" to see one of our stallholders, Trish Goodfield of Trishalan Designs. Trish owns a fab little shop that in another life was a butter factory but now is her workshop and retail space for all her eco dyed products. "ECO" I hear you say? Yes Trish can dye a shirt only using one cup of water, very friendly on the environment, (mind you it was raining the day we visited!!)
Trish holds classes teaching people her art and from photos we've seen on her blog it seems all those attending are just dye -ing to do more!!
Trish is a very philosophical person and we enjoyed her hospitality.
Thanks again Trish and happy birthday for yesterday too!!
You will be able to enjoy Trishs' hand dyed products, fabric, threads and clothing at all the Handmade Expos including Jondarayan on Australia Day 2009 and Goondiwindi on April 4 th 2009.
We also had the pleasure of meeting Trish's husband Alan, the other half of Trishalan designs and Alan creates pieces from wood which we are hoping he will bring along to Jondarayan.
Check out Trish's blog http://www.trishalandesigns.blogspot.com/ and she has a new website coming soon http://www.dyeingforfabricandthreads.com/
Note: Patchworkers go crazy for hand dyed fabrics! so if you know any mad about patchwork people, why not pick them up some fat quarters for Christmas from Trish on Saturday at the Handmade Expo.
