KoolKat market stalls for first half of 2019

Our first market stall will be at the Grantham Butter Factory as part of The Crafters Expo on March 9. Don't forget our rag rug making workshops, if you are interested.

We will then go to Harristown State High School auditorium later that same month (March 24) as part of The Handmade Expo.

On Sunday May 11 we will return to Forest Hill as part of The Handmade Expo, then back to Toowoomba on June 2nd.

These dates are just part of what we'll be doing this year, and we will keep you posted.

Rag rug workshops at the Craft Expo

Kat from KoolKat will be running two rag rug making workshops on March 9 at The Crafters Expo on Saturday March 9.  The Crafters Expo is held every two years and was booked out in 2017.  If you have seen Kat demonstrating rag rug making at our stall at various craft markets last year, or you missed out two years ago, now is your chance.  Please contact The Crafters Expo direct regarding bookings as these must be placed through their site.  We cannot take bookings on your behalf.  The March 9 workshops are the only ones we have planned for 2019, so if you are interested, please take this opportunity.   We will have also our usual stall at The Crafters Expo.
