By Jaclyn Carlson In late October, Sydney finally got our first CWC event (yeah!) and I’m here this month to tell you that it was a huge success and I personally can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store.
Held in an eclectic new community center in Redfern, a room full of like-minded Sydney gals gathered to hand knit and listen to textile super star, Julie Patterson of Cloth Fabic. Julie shared her background, business advice and candid thoughts on running your own business. If you’ve ever heard Julie speak, you’ll agree she is a natural born story teller and I couldn’t think of a better person to kick off Sydney’s first CWC event. A big thank you to Tess for organising such a great afternoon for us local girls and if you haven’t yet signed up for the Sydney event newsletter – run, don’t walk, and get your name on the list. You won’t want to miss the next one!
