in the press - brisbane news

We were absolutely thrilled to collect our copy of the Brisbane News magazine this week and for very good reason! Firstly, as our very own Boutique markets retailer Shannon Deutrom, from Milk and Honey, graced the cover of this weeks edition with a fabulous shot of herself and her gorgeous Patchblox wall plaques.

But more importantly, the article that followed on pages 12-13, is an exciting look into the thriving craft community in Brisbane. It's so exciting that mainstream news is embracing the crafting culture enough to include it on it pages for the mainstream public to read.

A snippet from the first paragraph of the article reads

"If you believe knitting is for Nana's, sewing for spinsters and crocheting for the over 60's, it's time to think again. There's a gentle revolution going on, a resurgence of all thing's handmade, and it's cooler and more cutting edge than you might imagine."

I actually went to the store for the first time over the weekend (before the article came out) and there was community crafting happening - it looked like fun! It was a good article to read too.
