The Dablers exhibiton was on during the Easter Weekend, and is held by the Bendigo Textile Artists Inc. I went 2 years ago with mum & it was very inspiring, a lot different from this years but I did get inspired with ideas for an upcoming project I am beginning. As well as textiles there is a range of mixed media works, Altered books, Polymer Clay jewelry, knitting, Artist Trading Cards {ATC's}, soft dolls & quilting. I also picked up some fabric remnants so I can use. It is on every 2 years so looks like I shall have to wait another year!
