Being an agricultural show, not a craft show it was a very different environment for our stall. There was a vast range of stallholders. One of my favourites was just opposite us. It was Woolerina, specialising in soft Australian merino clothing and run by Warwick. The venue was so cold, both Ferg and I each bought a pair of his extra thick fine merino woolly socks. We sure needed them over the next two days. I also bought a stylish beanie from Signatur Hand Knits.
There were many fashion parades over the three days, all interesting. Some were from retailers of woollen clothing and some were the winners from the judging of entrants into various show categories.
A trip to Bendigo is not complete until one has shopped at Bendigo Woollen Mills. My purchase was the extra yarn needed to complete my Entrelac blanket. So far I have finished two panels for the blanket.
The ELVIS, Straight From Graceland exhibition was a highlight from the few days we spent in Bendigo, along with an excellent meal at the Italian restaurant opposite the gallery.
