This group of ladies is special. They came to support Dot and I. From the left Jacky, Dot, Lee and Lynda. I took this photo after we left the exhibition. It was cute to see them having show and tell in the cold outside a car showroom! You do know how to have fun ladies!
These three tunics were made by Gisela Pfab (top photo) using vintage kimono fabric from ZZ. They are so vibrant and happy that I even want to make one for myself. I have enough fabric to make a few, I think!
Jane and her wall hangings. The top piece is called Windy Washing Day; the bottom piece is called Bird's Eye View. Jane worked on both pieces in our Wednesday craft sessions. It's great to see them here as part of the exhibition.
Our lovely Kate Collins one of the curators and staff at ZZ. Kate was wearing one of her dresses made with vintage kimono fabric. Kate has a few pieces of her art work in the exhibition too. I specially love the blue bag. I've the same piece of that katazomi indigo so I might make a bag just like Kate's!
The dresses above are my favourite items in the exhibition. You can guess why: boro, eco-dyed and indigo dresses. All the three textiles I love! Sorry I don't have the name of the maker.
Don't you just love these vibrant happy colour pieces. Two cushions and 3 pictures all hand made and hand stitched by Dot. Dot put lots and lots of stitching into creating this work. Well done Dot!
Last but not least, are these stunning quilts all hand stitched and hand quilted. Maria of Peaceful Life blog is the maker of these two quilts. I would have loved to meet Maria, but she couldn't make it for the opening. Maria creates amazing quilts and textile crafts using vintage Japanese textiles.
If you are in Melbourne, this is one exhibition you should visit. The exhibition goes until 27th October. I would love to go back and next time take my time to have a good look.
I hope you enjoy the tour of the exhibition and thanks for dropping by. I would love to hear from you. Please leave me a comment.
Until next time
