Fashion parade

The fashion parade with lovely creations of stallholders from The Handmade Expo on Saturday went off without a hitch and was quite delightful. I wonder how many of those tiny tots will end up being models ?

Market Mania

Oh my goodness, We are going to be busy little bees for the rest of the year, I am beginning to feel the excitement building already.

Not only is the regular monthly Handmade Expo Market on again tomorrow, but we have been busy behind the scenes adding some extra special markets into our calendar.
We love the Lockyer Valley, 2 out of 3 of us now making the Lockyer our homes, so it was a natural progression to bring the market to our community.

We now have 2 extra markets for you to either attend as a stallholder or to mark in your diaries as a must go to event, both in time for some Handmade Christmas shopping.
The first is going to be in Forest Hill at the Old School of the Arts building, ( AKA The Hall ! ) on the 1st October from 9am - 3pm, The second at the Laidley Uniting Church, Patrick Street Laidley, 3rd December, 9am - 3pm.

Bookings are already rolling in for the Forest Hill Market so if this interests you as a stallholder, pop onto the blog and fill out your application.
We have only just released the booking form for the Laidley Christmas Market so you can do the booking form on the blog now too.

Both venues are kinda half way between Ipswich and Toowoomba, ideal !

Hope to see you tomorrow anyway with lots of bubbachenille product and a few bits of mimmis thrown in for good measure !

Absent explanation !

Hi everyone,

Looking back over the last month since I posted, things continue to grow and grow business wise and am finding it hard to keep up sometimes. I actually should be sewing and cutting out right now ! LOL

Mimmis is powering full steam ahead and expanding every day it seems as new ideas come to fruition.

I hosted a lovely workshop with tutor Jule from Whimsical Imaginaings and using Miss Rose Sister Violet products..the feedback and reactions to the workdhops were amazing and so far off the scale, I could never have imagined.

I have now set up my 8 seater back room to host mini workshops and to create a space for the crafty to come, sit, chat and create. I am especially encouraging the concept of UFO'S, come and finish something you started and just never got around to finishing whilst in the company of like minded people, have a cuppa, relax and enjoy.

I have also enlisted the services of very clever scrapper, Jody from Stick'nGiggle to do 3 workshops to start with. Will blog dates and workshop details soon.

I am also open to anyone with a talent and wanting to share with others to please contact me, whether it be knitting or crotcheting, decoupage or embroidery or a hundred other clever things that go on in the crafty world, small groups are waiting to learn something new, right here, right now!

We have also been organising a couple of ANNUAL Market events, one being right here in Forest Hill on 1st October ( 50 days time ! ) if you are interested, please pop over to The Handmade Expo blog and fill in an application as spaces are filling quickly for this country boutique style market.

I will post soon about mimmis backroom upcoming adventures.

You can also keep up to date on mimmis facebook page.
