Convergence is a gathering of felt makers and sharing knowledge is the underlying theme. It is four full days of immersion and indulgence in every aspect of felt making suitable for all levels of experience. Anyone interested in felt making and textiles should attend. There is no need to belong to a formal textile organisation or felting group. Just come along, learn, share, felt and have fun.

The 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence was a fabulous five days in October 2011 at Bunbury Western Australia.

Must See Event - South West Fashion Festival

In our last post we mentioned that we are having a fashion parade at the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence.  Everyone's  wonderful felt creations will be paraded on the catwalk in an evening of glamour and style. 

We love to see felt on show and to get us in the mood for things to come at Convergence we are really looking  forward to South West Fashion Festival - an exciting local fashion event designed to promote local designers, artists, photographers and retailers.  Many of the models will be wearing stunning felt clothes and accessories created by members of the Bunbury Felters Group so we are thrilled to be involved in this event. 

The South West Fashion Festival runs from  24th February 2011 to 26th February 2011.
Venue Bicentennial Square, Bunbury

The print in red indicates the shows include our gorgeous felt which appears under the category of  "Art to Wear Organic Fashion" .

Wow, I'm wearing a similar piece today. It was made by Jacqui last year. I have just visited from Bunbury Felters other blog. There is lovely, imaginative work on there and now I am looking forward to browsing this one.
All the best for the fashion parade.

Thank you for dropping by Helen and we are very happy that you have chosen to wear felt.
The piece pictured by Kerry Gelmi is huge; a great long cape as you can see, but still light as a feather. It certainly is a show stopper.
Make sure you visit us again and see our pictures from the South West Fashion Festival.
