A quick update, in short advance of a longer one!

First up, Love Vintage: A Passion For Collection Fashion‘s Melbourne launch has a date attached: October 21st. It’s also available or pre-order!

Second, locals with a dab hand for the needle, the jeweller’s pliers, the sculptor’s gimlet… or any other artisinal tool… may well be interested in the Melbourne Alternative Crafters group! It’s crafty and steampunky and it looks like fun.

As I say, I’ve a longer post up my sleeve – bit of a history one, this time! Shall have it ready for you to read as soon as I’m able.
