You girls are awesome.
Thanks so much for your supportive and loving comments, you are a big part of what we do, especially with The Handmade Expo.
How much of a struggle would it be for all you local girls to find some where "great" to sell all your creations if we suddenly decided to pack up shop because of this bully? Dont worry ,we aren't going anywhere, except upwards, inspired by this mishap to work even harder to offer a great show place for all your beautiful handmade treasures.
When you have a passion and a fire in the belly for something, as we do, it shows when we meet on Market day or you deliver your goods to Handmade Heaven.
You can feel the love and passion for what we do and a little nobody is not going to get on top of us. We just change the way we do things to overcome an obstacle. Look at the amazing response we are getting from all of you, our friends.
We know we are doing the right thing, and we will be still doing the right thing long after the bully is put to bed!
Thanks everyone for your support and generous offers of help, and thanks for accepting my friend request on facebook to keep up with bubbachenille The Handmade Expo and Handmade Heaven.
I dont take any of you for granted and thank you for your support.

I can still keep you up to date on my blog and you can send a friend request to my personal FB page...Miriam Bain.
If you would like to be informed directly regarding the Handmade expo, we'd love for you to email us and we can pop you on our data base to receive updates personally, (just click the email link in my blog profile.)
I recently had a "fan" drive on facebook and was overwhelmed with the response, I thank you all so much and hope you will now join me here, via email and friend on FB
The Handmade Expo BLOG will still remain and will keep you up to date on The Market. We have other massive ways to keep you informed ! At this stage our advice only relates to Facebook and Twitter.
We have also been advised to stop following blogs publicly and facebook pages that our cyber bully is following, We are still reading all our favourite blogs though (and following privately) and leaving comments to our friends and colleagues.
So if we dissapear off your blog, you'll know why.
We never would have thought this possible in this Handmade world , but there you have it.
Please correspond personally if you have any questions, I will be happy to answer any of your questions!
I will blog on a happier creative topic soon!

Do you think they like pink ? A range of sizes in pants and skirts (top ) and bathmats, clutches and heat packs.
If you are on your way to somewhere or doing the antique shop trail, Cafe Sorella is a must to stop for a break. The two sisters who own Cafe Sorella are Italian and the food is modern Australian with a big touch of Italian. Tell them I sent you!
Dont forget my give away on Face book, you only have to leave a FB comment telling me your fave bubbachenille product and be a fan on bubbas FB page too! Finishes Thursday 18th at noon. Good Luck X

This notebook holder from Finki uses the original images from 50's, 60's and 70's patterns and books. No scanners or photocopiers involved ...! A 100% one of a kind. I love Finki items and have quite a few in my collection now, you could say I nearly have a full set!
Lots of you will recognise these things from Curlypops, I always love her choice of fabrics in her projects and this glass case is an example of one of my fave fabrics.
I used it on the weekend too and let me tell you, it's not hard to find in your handbag! The heart brooch...what can I say, I'm so into hearts and having a flower brooch of curlypops, I already love the way these are done. Lots of stiffening and a great conversation starter. I have never NOT had a comment wearing a curlypops brooch...I love them.
Thanks goodness Liesa is selling these two great artists work in Handmade Heaven.
