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.

Thank You and Goodbye

Well, the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence is well and truly over and we hope you all had a wonderful time.  The feedback that we have had from you has all been positive.  It has been satisfying to see the results of the Committee's hard work over the last two years come to fruition.

Along the way we have had many helpers and we sincerely thank everyone involved in making the event happen. We have been constantly over whelmed by peoples' generosity.

Particular thanks go to our sponsors, the traders and individuals who contributed to the goody bags and prize draws. Please seek them out to do business with in the future, they are all specialists in their fields and will give you the benefit of their expertise.

Others with expertise that was willingly shared with us was that of our very talented photographers Toni C and Lyn Pix .  They have generously provided us with their time and their amazing images for use in our publications and promotional material and of course the fashion cd which  Camera House Bunbury worked really hard to get ready for Thursday night.  Thank you all.

Our gratitude goes to Michelle Jones who's new business
AM Management provided us with the "non felter" models for our fashion parade. Her models kindly donated their evening to us and were absolutely beautiful. Thank you guys, we really appreciated your help and involvement in making this a professional event.  We also need to congratulate the hairdressers and makeup artists and the dressers who came in to make the fashion parade work like a dream.

Thank you to Gary Palfrey-Jones and Victoria Gelmi who helped all the tutors with their IT issues. Great job guys.

Thank you to everyone who brought their work along to share whether it was in the fashion parade, the Bazaar Night or the display of work.  We were thrilled by the amount of participation.  You really made the Convergence buzz.

 Finally we would like to thank the talented tutors for donating their time and knowledge. Convergence is a gathering of felt makers and sharing knowledge is the underlying theme. Without your big hearted attitude there would not be a Convergence.

In time this blog will disappear into the blogosphere.  It was only intended to communicate on the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence and therefore has no relevance going forward.  We intend however to ramp up our Bunbury Felting Group blog and we hope that you will join us there to enjoy our further adventures in felt.

Farewell and we hope to see you all in 2013 in New South Wales for the 12th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence.
