Monthly Market at Dungog

July 30, 2014

Our group, Dungog by Design, is preparing to feature creations at our market this coming Saturday.  The market is held in the lovely grounds of the Presbyterian Church situated in Dowling St, just a hop skip and jump from our various cafe’s and coffee stops.

Having heat resistant wadding in my stash I made a few oven mits (or trivets).  They are functional items for any household and in my opinion they are classy to look at too.   They feature a backed piece to protect the back of the hand during handling of dishes in the oven.  These are new to the market….I try to have something for everyone!



Also due to the popularity of fabric postcards, these have been created during the past few days.   They allow a handwritten message to be composed on the back of the card and mailed through Aust Post.

My love of Dungog’s landscape with its hills and dales comes through in my creations.

Coorei Bridge by Leonie CareAn overview

Over the next few days I would like to show you some of the pieces presented by the Daughters on Dowling, a group of textile artists living in the Hunter Region where I live.

This being our group’s third exhibition, provided an opportunity to showcase creative design & workmanship.

We each selected any of the various bridges in the Hunter region and had licence to create our piece (or pieces) in any way we liked.

Comments from visitors indicated these were of a very high standard……… was music to our ears.
