..with the emphasis on felt...and wool, cardboard, zpagetti and all the crafty materials used to bring the 2013 Saviours of the Lost Arts program (SoTLA) to life last Friday night!

It was the combined efforts of all who came along to support the night, all who participated and of course the ongoing support from the Brisbane City Council, which made the night such a raving success.

A Celebration of Handmade
One of the most eclectic mixes of Brisbane's best handmade to date! From the square to the deck all the stalls were brimming with eager stallholders, beautifully made wares and passionate marketeers.
Many thanks to all the marketeers for the time put into creating your gorgeous work and curating your stalls!  

Heartfelt thanks to all who supported the stallholders by giving new homes to their gorgeous goodies!
