Kylie's Christmas Tree
Our guerilla craft event "Delightful Things for Christmas" was held on Saturday and I have to say it was so much fun. Being involved with the other wonderful , creative artists and setting up our own independent event was very inspiring.
Florence's Stall-Novas, Pimmie Parrots and Amulets
We only had one meeting and about 100 or so e-mails but this was an event almost totally without bureaucracy. The day dawned very hot and sunny and before the official opening time of 9 o'clock the first customers were trickling (then flooding!) in.

There were refreshments, cupcakes, homemade biscuits and goodies and rugs and cushions out on the lawn for those suffering shopping fatigue and it was really lovely to hold a craft event where children were welcome and felt comfortable.
The Umbrella Collective was set up with this spirit in mind, a welcoming, creative , infinitely expandable group of friends united by craft and friendship. We will be holding more events in future. I can't wait!
