    Hi Jo

    We come to Busselton every year for a mother daughter cousin weekend with my mother and her 2 sisters and all my girl cousins (around 10 of us) in around May. Last time we checked out the museum and the gallery in town (busso) and there were some beautiful silk & felt scarves there. The guide at the museum said there were scarf making workshops in the area and in an effort to find one I have come across your blog and web site. Do you know anything about them and could you steer me in the right direction?
    Kind regards

  5. Hi Caroline, I do know someone who makes felt scarves and another person who makes hand dyed silk scarves (Jane has a gallery on the way from Bunbury to Busselton called Folios and Fibre). Val, who is one of the ‘felt makers’ I think works in conjunction with Stirling Arts centre, and Denise has a beautiful gallery where she sells products from both these women too, called The Lyndendale Gallery on Crooked Brooke Road in the Ferguson Valley. I’m going to cc your message to each of them in an email and hopefully they can help you further. Thanks for popping by to ZigaZag and I do hope you’ll visit again.

    Enjoyed a Weekend stay at Donnelly Mill. Town during 1992. Being kiwis, new to WA at the time. We went South for a holiday from the Parched Perth. During that summer. The Old Timber Cottage was an experience. Met the Old Man once a Timber Mill Worker. Whom lived in a Wooden Shack with No Electricity. He’s was in his 80’s then. 1992. -1994.
