Sunday Crafternoons

The clothing and materials working group are hosting regular casual get-togethers where people can bring along a crafty project, maybe get some tips and advice, or maybe help someone else with something they are making.
Our first crafting session will be at 1/15 Ballantyne Street, Thornbury from 2pm on Sunday the 10th of April. We will look at making this a regular event if it proves popular! Other venue suggestions are welcome.

TD’s first Made ‘n Thornbury market stall

Made ‘n Thornbury, an initiative of Thornbury Women’s Neighborhood House, held its final community market for 2010 on Saturday 11 December and Transition Darebin was among the stallholders, selling home-made produce, crafts and Christmas decorations and a selection of home-grown herbs, vegies, seeds and seedlings, all provided by Transition Darebinites.

It was a fun day, not least because we got to check out the other stalls. There are some seriously creative craftswomen in Darebin. We also discovered that fresh rhubarb is in high demand so it’s a good thing this reliable perennial is growing in many of our gardens.

The next Made ‘n Thornbury market will be in autumn. We hope to be there again. Thanks to the wonderful Maz, Rachel and Kelly for suggesting and organising our presence at this one.
