versatile blogger

Samone from Red Letter Studio nominated us for the versatile blogger awards.
Cheers! Hoots! Clapping!

In response to this lovely overture we need to share 7 things about Harvest Textiles:
  1. Harvest Textiles is based in Melbourne, Australia and is made up of three lovely ladies - Jess, Lara and Em. None of us are originally from Melbourne. Jess grew up in Adelaide, Lara grew up in Fremantle and Em grew up in Sydney.
  2. We sublet our studio with Teegs and Lara C - the Ink & Spindle girls. They work Monday to Friday 9 - 5 and so we are the little night owls and weekend bunnies who make use of the fantastic space in what would otherwise be the studio's downtime.
  3. All three of us are mumma's. Jess has a little boy called Milo who is about to turn 3. Lara has a little boy Frankie who is 18 months old and Em has a girl and a boy - Arkie who is 5 and a half and Ziggy who is 2. They are our Harvest Textiles in-house models.
  4. Lara knows a whole lot about squid fishing. Go figure!?!?!?
  5. Em just spent the weekend with her family at the Walhalla Coach House and went toboganning at Mount Saint Guinere. It was great fun!
  6. We think the folks at Loafer Bread make the best croissants in melbourne.
  7. We just got into the first melbourne Finders Keepers market 9th & 10th October. Woo Hoo! See you there.
Now to share 15 blogs that we like:

* Resurrection Fern: check out this lovely post about a recent natural dyeing session.
