Hello! I hope you had a lovely weekend. As you know from last week's posts, I participated in the Craft Hatch market over the weekend. It was a quite day for me in terms of sales but that's ok. Compared to other Craft Hatch market's I've visited it seemed a bit thinner on visitors too. It got me wondering if Melbourne's market scene is becoming over-saturated, especially at this time of year. There are so many, many markets on. And so many big scaled market events too. I wonder what you think?

The day didn't start so quietly though, missing a turn on the way in, getting trapped in a lane-way by a car that needed jump-starting plus taking a wrong turn which trapped me in a miniature city parking block resulting in a too-tight maneuver that scrapped the side of my car. All before we'd even set-up! This introvert was pretty close to calling it a day!

One of the bonuses of sharing a stand was getting time to sneak off and check out the other stall holders work, all of which was wonderful. My husband managed to get Christmas shopping done when he stopped by too. Yay for supporting independent makers this Christmas! 

One of my favourite stalls of the day was Brianna's from Jack of Diamonds - in action on her knitting machine - I wish I had a photo to share with you. Her knitwear is beautiful! Other highlights for me included; detailed triangular smocking from Yoshie, the delightfully colourful worlds of both Dear Plastic and Paradise Structures, divine pottery by Yoko Ozawa, the delicate knitted jewellery from Helen Noulas of Elenii and Georgie Cummings' ceramic and leather work.

I only managed to take a couple of pics on the day which I posted on Instagram. The image above of Jess and I is thanks to Jess's gorgeous mum. Thanks also to Channon and the team at Craft for organising the day!

I had been planning on coming to Craft Hatch, now I'm sad I didn't make it. There is just so much on in Melbourne at the moment though! And you may be right about all the Craft Markets, though it seems as though Craft Hatch has a few different things that you don't see everywhere else.

By the way, my sister recently had a baby called Evie - it's the best name!
