With TJ’s expert organising skills, I thoroughly enjoyed the Modern Love exhibit in Bendigo, mainly because of the company and the fashion. The whole weekend was great.
The exhibit organiser, Leanne, greeted our group at the gallery on her day off. She was a very lovely host. We had permission to take pics as long as we didn’t use a flash. Take a closer look at Jenny’s self-drafted skirt, TJ’s sari dress and Raquel’s trousers.
You know – we all sew…
TJ, Yoshimi and I had a great Indian dinner on the Friday night, wearing our own makes. TJ and Yoshimi‘s write ups give you a better idea of how great the weekend was. GJ’s and Clear it outlet were my Friday afternoon fabric pre-weekend purchase haunts. Yoshimi flew into Melbourne after a wonderful week with the lovely Carolyn.
The pic below was taken outside the Bendigo Art district, again wearing our makes. Have a close look a Yoshimi’s bag and dress.
And Mason’s of Bendigo fed us with their delicate share plates.
At the end of the day we ended up at Joe’s shoe store bar. We had loads more catch up time over a drink and the waiter looked after us.
Sunday was a huge day with Kristiann and Simon ie Kristiann’s big day out.
The 007 Bond exhibit at Melbourne Museum was scheduled for the afternoon so TJ got Yoshimi to The Fabric Store in time for some much needed fabric purchasing while the rest of us hung out for a real coffee at Sonido.
Then I had to fly home and miss a great dinner with everyone. Everyone from our group that I could find in the 007 exhibit got a hug as I left to catch my flight home – winged it 😉 When DH picked me up at the airport, he knew from my big smile that I’d had a great weekend and that he really should have come for the 007 exhibit at the very least.
