Oh hi you! So glad you could come. Come in, come in. Can I get you a drink?
There's some nibblies over there.
And someone's just chucked another shrimp on the barbie for you.
Oh and there's a lovely barramundi just been grilled.
Wollongong Stitch and Bitch held it's third annual knitting exhibition at the weekend.
We spent a wonderful afternoon hanging it on Friday, although at times it was a bit fraught, it all kind of pulled together and found itself in the end.
We're a much awarded bunch of knitters you know.
Of course it's a matter of personal opinion, but I think that our visual merchandising skills leave the Royal Easter Show for dead.
This year we focussed on the diversity of the group. I took a portrait shot of every person who exhibited and got them to write a little something about themselves, and I mounted them on foamcore and hung their story on the walls. They brought a real human element into the show and it made the lovely women who knit at snb feel really special. It's the little details that can give you the wow factor.
Unless of course, someone brings babies!
I love how every year so far it's looked really different, and that we have been able to come up with new ideas for display and themes, and that we get such a buzz from the positive response of the public who come in and have a look.
Plenty more pictures of the exhibition here.
