Kallista Market

It was a great day on Saturday up at Kallista. Even though it was freezing, there was a fantastic atmosphere. There was a fire burning, music playing, great food and a good variety of stalls. I met some REALLY nice people. My stall next-door neighbour Vicki makes gorgeous ceramic brooches, pendants and clocks. She and I and Amy (lovely person who organises the market) had such a good chat and giggle. I met a few artists who live up there and had some lovely customers. Feedback on my work was great and I really felt a part of a community. I highly recommend this market to anyone who likes to get out in the hills.

When I got home, I applied to have a stall at the Emu Plains (Balnarring) markets which start up again on October 19. It’s a curated market and I was thrilled when Vanessa got back to me almost immediately with a ‘yes, please come along’. I’ve heard really good things about this market through other stallholders. I drove by yesterday morning after breakfast at Linton’s in Mt Eliza to have a look at the space. It’s at the Balnarring Racecourse on Coolart Road. Looking forward to October.

I have a bucket of jobs to do before then. I’m in the process of making a dress pattern for my ‘Annie Tunic’ so that I can offer that for sale. I wore my own to the ‘Craft and Quilt Fair’ a couple of weeks ago and got so many compliments that I thought I’d make it available for others to make up in their own choice of fabrics.

  1. Hi Sarah! Your “stall buddy for the day” here 🙂
    It was SO nice to meet you at Kallista markets.
    I admire your work very much too! And, your fabrics are gorgeous – so love the way you work with dee-licious linen 🙂
    There’s something so honest, tactile and wonderfully traditional about working with it isn’t there?

    Looking forward to reading your future posts 🙂
