This is one of several of my handmade tea cosies for sale at my upcoming Partners in Textiles exhibition, on my market stall.
We will have several other delightful Market stalls on Saturday 12 August, including specialists in Silk, picture framing, Artists Books, and wood sculpture.
Also on display will be a vintage American Caddy (Cadillac)!
Come and join the frivolity and fun if you’re anywhere near Brisbane, Cooroy or the Sunshine Coast, I’d love to meet you – come say, “Hello Helen!”!
Where? The Butterfactory, Cooroy, 12 th August 2017 – read more >>

I was fascinated by the knitted tea cosies I found in second-hand shops because they’re diverse, original, made by people being creative who aren’t worried about status or artistic value. They are genuine hand-craft.
I have created cloth dolls instead of plastic or Barbie dolls etc, and use my own ideas for tea cosies. Being me, I can’t help going “over the top” where “more” is better, and better still 🙂
I see them as a celebration of women and craft, and who doesn’t love a cup of tea?
