Welcome 2014!

We are happy to welcome in a brand New Year at Gleaners Inc. We have lots planned.
Our first exhibition will be in March as a part of the Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program.
The show is titled "Materialized" and will follow on from the very successful "A Piece of Cloth" exhibition held last year.
Artists, designers and crafters are still invited to get a fabric swatch and create a work for the show. Details here.

2014 Ahoy!

Well what do you know! We are planning things for NEXT YEAR at Gleaners Inc. 
A wee while ago I didn't think there was going to be a next year due to landlordy stuff/family stuff. But there you go, we are still kicking and loving our always growing Gleaners Inc. community.

Right now we are gearing up for Christmas and looking forward to setting up a beautiful stall full of Gleaners Inc. goodies at Markit at Fed. Square on Sunday 24th November. This market is not to be missed! 
See you there xxxxx

Other colourful Mexicali goodies are available like intricate hand painted ceramic candle sticks,milagro medals and mini sombrero brooches, not to mention the popular sugar skull kits and Betty Jo brooches!
