The previews of our talented stallholders coming to market this Friday continue.......

Made by a Mzungu is a Preston-based artisan.  "My makings go by the name of Made by a Mzungu. A 'mzungu' is a person of foreign descent and you hear it constantly when travelling in East Africa. A place that I love travelling to and one that inspires some of my creations."

Made by a Mzungu creates one of a kind resin jewellery and art work pieces. Her stunning works feature vintage wallpaper, photos and stamps.

 Millie 'n Daisy is a kiwi who has called Australia home for 26 years.  Like many of us, Donna learnt her knitting skills from her Nan and has been an avid crafter ever since.
"In 2011, I completed TWNH's Make Your Craft Business course and Millie' n Daisy was created. As well as being an outlet for my creations, I have gained a large network of like-minded women whom have become close friends."

Millie 'n Daisy create handmade cards, gifts and accessories. Crocheted creatures feature on her stall to brighten everyone's day.

Both Millie 'n Daisy and Made by a Mzungu were part of the talented team who decorated the tables at our 2014 TWNH annual women's dinner

It's market week ! And our first market for 2015.

We're very excited to be welcoming back some of our favourite stallholders as well as welcoming many stallholders making their Made 'n Thornbury Craft Market debut.

Liz and Bob Designs create fun, quirky and  LOCAL mugs, cards, calendars and more using original digital designs. Liz designs and makes each product, while Bob doesn't do much at all !
But, he is Liz's very cute little terrier and his image is used in the business logo !

Liz and Bob Designs have been a regular and valued member of the Made 'n Thornbury family since completing TWNH's Make Craft Your Business course.

Gianna of Knit One, Square One is another one of our talented stallholders, whom after completing TWNH's Make Craft Your Business Course, has successfully turned her craft into a small business. 

"I grew up in a house where craft was a normal part of our everyday life. The table always had a project on it. Once the evening meal was over and the dishes done, my mother, sisters and I would sit and make." 

Sound familiar ? 

Gianna now puts these skills to clever work creating one of a kind pieces that a treat to see and hold.
From dolls, pin cushions and crochet bunting ! 

Both Liz and Gianna were part of the talented team of stallholders that put together the amazing table decorations at last year's TWNH annual dinner.

How to not go silly in the silly season.....part 2.

It's market week ! The final Made 'n Thornbury for 2014.

Now, if you are like me, you have been to the big shopping centres and they are not fun this time of year. A much better plan, and sure way to not go silly this silly season is to do all your Christmas shopping with a glass of wine in hand and shop local at the market.

To make your shopping even easier, we have put together a shopping guide for you. Everyone on your list is covered.....

Of course, there are even more talented stallholders and many more beautiful handmade gifts that you can buy at Made 'n Thornbury. There really is something for everyone.

Looking forward to seeing you there - with extended hours from 10am - 4pm.
