Welcome to 2015......let's get crafty !

Well hello there !

It would appear that the summer holidays are coming to an end.
The shops are full of back to school specials and, as can only happen in Melbourne, the weather is warming up.....

All this means that it is once again time to get crafty and get to Made 'n Thornbury Craft Market.

In 2015 we once again have SIX market dates, including TWO Twilight markets. So successful and popular was last year's twilight market, that we decided one just wasn't enough !

Applications are now open for all market dates. Please see our application page for details.

We're looking forward to seeing many of our regulars return and even more new local crafters make their Made 'n Thornbury Craft Market debut.

For all market enquiries outside of applications, please email madenthornbury@gmail.com

How to not go silly in the silly season.....part 2.

It's market week ! The final Made 'n Thornbury for 2014.

Now, if you are like me, you have been to the big shopping centres and they are not fun this time of year. A much better plan, and sure way to not go silly this silly season is to do all your Christmas shopping with a glass of wine in hand and shop local at the market.

To make your shopping even easier, we have put together a shopping guide for you. Everyone on your list is covered.....

Of course, there are even more talented stallholders and many more beautiful handmade gifts that you can buy at Made 'n Thornbury. There really is something for everyone.

Looking forward to seeing you there - with extended hours from 10am - 4pm.

How to not go silly during the silly season.....part 1.

It is now less than a month til Christmas ! Can anyone else believe how fast this year has gone ?

So, the silly season is definitely upon us......but fear not, we have a few tricks up our sleeves and we are sharing them with you.

Welcome to the Made 'n Thornbury, "how to not go silly during the silly season" posts.

First up, let me pour you a well deserved glass of wine.......

Now, have you been to the shops lately - already crazy !  Might we suggest you do as much shopping away from shopping centres as possible.....

This includes your festive wine..... Yes, TWNH is selling delicious Yarra Valley wine at a great price AND you can order online and then collect from TWNH at 131 Shaftesbury Parade. Couldn't be easier. The wine sales are also raising funds for our programs and projects next year, so really, it's guilt free wine.

What could be better for your Christmas, New Year and summer parties and entertaining ?

We're quite partial to the Sauvignon Blanc......

In addition to cases of wine, we'll be selling  WINE BY THE GLASS at our Christmas market on Saturday December 13th. With extended hours, from 10am - 4pm.
Again, avoid the shops, support your local makers, have a glass of wine and enjoy the market.

Guaranteed to keep the silly out of the silly season !

Looking forward to seeing our community at the market on December 13th.

Project Tableway - Northern Regards Artisan Market

Firstly, is everyone ok after that big storm ?? Good day to stay indoors in craft I think !

So, Friday night was the TWNH Annual Women's Dinner.
A chance to gather with colleagues, friends, neighbours and like minded women to celebrate TWNH and "Real Women, Real Role Models."

We returned to our roots at the humble Leinster Grove hall, home of Made 'n Thornbury Craft Market. And what better way to decorate the hall and make the evening extra special than to invite our clever crafters to decorate the tables. Each in their own individual style, creativity and talents.

The hall looked amazing ! So proud of our clever stallholders. All real women and all wonderful.

The level of detail and creativity was extraordinary.

Rather than have you miss out on the fun, we'll be sharing each clever crafter's tables with you here on the blog, in a series we like to call, Project Tableway !

First up on the tableway......is our 'sister' market, Northern Regards Artisan Market.

Staying true to their sustainable handmade ethos, Northern Regards brought some clever upcycling to the tables......

Damaged records and cds, well past their playing days became Northern Regards Artisan Market placemats and coasters. While candle holders and vases were created from craftbeer bottles that had served their purpose and now upcyled.

Northern Regards is all about handmade and upcycling, being Melbourne's only market that focuses on local sustainable handmade. Proud to be entering their second Christmas season, the market takes place at the iconic Northcote Social Club on the first Saturday of every month.

This month, they are celebrating Spring Racing Carnival.....without the horses, but with the cake, champagne and fabcy headwear.

Wear your best handmade or upcycled hat or fascinator to the market THIS SATURDAY and with every purchase from the market you'll receive a free glass of bubbles ! That's sure to make the Christmas shopping a lot more pleasant !

You can follow Northern Regards Artisan Market and never miss an update or market date on
and Instagram.

And don't miss their next two market dates,
Saturday November 1 and Saturday December 6th 11am - 4pm.

Thanks Northern Regards - we think you're pretty amazing. Cheers !

And that was our Twilight Market.......

Wow !
Just wow !
What an amazing twilight market we had last Friday......

The sun was shining, the sausages were sizzling, children were being creative, the wine was flowing and shoppers happily shopping.

There were  picnics being held in the park next to the hall. 

It was fantastic to see so many of our recent Make Craft Your Business participants debuting their wares at Made 'n Thornbury.

Being a warm night, the Picket Fence Pops delicious fruit icy poles were a huge hit and SOLD OUT in just TWO HOURS. Never fear, they'll be back on December 13th.

As will we, with more talented stallholders, handmade Christmas gifts, raffle, sausage sizzle and activities for young and old.

A BIG thank you goes to :

Our stallholders for your tireless efforts in crafting beautiful local handmade.

TWNH staff and management for your ongoing support and the great sausage sizzle that raised much needed funds for TWNH.

Generous stallholders that donated to our raffle. Which also raised funds for TWNH

Happy shopppers - our local community support was on show and it was beautiful to see.

Most importantly, our VOLUNTEERS, thank you to our volunteers who helped with the sausage sizzle, raffle, wine sales and running the market. We simply can not do it without you.

Now, let's all get back to making and we look forward to seeing you at our last market for 2014 on Saturday December 13th 10am - 4pm.
