Turramurra Xmas in July 11th & 12th will be my first Sydney show of the year: who'd have pondered that six months ago!
The venue has high ceilings, lots of daylight, and everything is well spaced out.
Just 2 minutes walk from Turramurra station with ample free parking across the road. Corner of Turramurra Ave & Pacific Hwy
Canberra - Hopefully will be soon!
Melbourne - what about a mini show?
Friends and designers put our heads together - at a safe distance - and chose to put out for Xmas in July at our favourite Turramurra venue.
This is a Christmas party where you pick your own present - don't we all deserve one after being all dressed up with nowhere to go for so long - let us dress you top to toe!
Carol Tiling with Pages Shoes
You'll be spoilt for choice by Carol's range of styles, including boots, you can pick your leather colour/ print - shoe shape and heels - shoes made to measure!
Xmas in July is focused on quality with a low key return
to a designer direct market place.
Sat 11th 9.30am to pm/ Sunday 12th 10am to 3pm Six makers will be joining Signatur handknits: Margaret Cane clothing, Carol Tilling with Page shoes, Sally Gullson Bags, MLS Jewelery, Le Pin Parasol table cloths and Carol Gleeson knitwear from Wagga.
Australia 9am Thursday 9th July...
USA Wednesday 8th July @ 7pm
I am really looking forward to being the guest 'chatter' on Fibreside Chat. My Sydney Studio pictured below, mirrors set up so I can show garments too. I'll be sharing many of the techniques both styling and finishing, I have developed over 30 years of Signatur Handknits, along with my team of hand knitters.
The cost to join the event is US$20.
The host shops will have some great deals for their US clients, I will create a similar deal here in Australia. They'll be some of you elsewhere too - happy to expand the offer! If you do book please tell Holly you heard via my promotion please.
Bella Filati is one of the US yarn stores involved in hosting this event. I taught several times in Holly's beautiful Southern Pines store, joined Holly's family dinners, we even had a open fire too!

Melbourne - I think a mini trunk show might be OK for everyone. Email me if you are interested
As you can see the studio is stocked!
The new Ready to Wear Page has worked really well, thank you. Thank ou for supporting me.
Once I have your chest size, height and we have a little chat we decide on two garments. These two garments are mailed so you can make your final selection.
Knitting classes - the class will be emailed to you, it's not a studio class at present. The class is complimentary when you order a knitting kit or pattern for Split Texture Jacket or Penny Jacket. The knitting class is emailed to you so you can limber up your skills before the kit arrives!
The class knitted swatch is attached to the dummy (above). Swatch includes short row shaping on the hemline, stitch patterns plus knitted on buttonband technique.
How about a zoom for Fibreside Chat?
