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.

Bunbury Felting Group - 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence ABN 62663714697

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

The Convergence may be over but we are still felting so please join us at the Bunbury Felting Group blog.

Blocks by Design

We have been overjoyed by the generosity of so many of you during the run up to the Convergence and we would like to express our appreciation to everyone who has contributed to the event by providing donations of goods which we will use in participants "goody" bags and for prize draws.

We were particularly  delighted to open up a package sent to us by Doug Osbourne of Blocks By Design and find this amazing hat block -

Blocks By Design - Evenly Curved Multi Piece Block
We felters are all keen hatters and a good hat block is a must if you want to achieve a professional result.  If you have ever considered getting your own block then look no further than Blocks by Design.  They have the most amazing range of blocks we have ever seen and will also design one specifically to your needs.  Just browsing through Doug's website makes us get deep into the art of millinery.

Their motto is "to help you create your dream".  Well Doug, you certainly live up to it by helping us to create our dream Felting Convergence.

The fabulous Blocks by Design hat block is worth $270.00 and one lucky  11th Southern Hemisphere Felt Convergence attendee will walk away with it.

The block will be proudly displayed at the Convergence so make sure you have a good look atit and admire the high quality. 

In the meantime pop over to the Blocks by Design website and start deciding on what block to order.   

Then get creating.

We have added their website to our Felt Network over on the right hand side bar so that you can find them easily in the future.

Thanks again Doug.
