To Market To Market. . .

Jack of Diamonds is heralding the beginning of the chilly season with a couple of Melbourne markets... The eagerly anticipated Yarra Valley Design Market at Rochford Wines debuts this Sunday 24th March and shortly afterward I will be in the heart of Melbourne at the Finders Keepers Autumn/Winter markets...


Overjoyed at the arrival of the cooler weather I couldn't help but head out to share some Jack of Diamonds warmth. First stop: Yarra Valley Design Market, the team that brought you the famed Melbourne Design Market are setting up at the lovely Rochford Wines in Coldstream. If I wasn't heading out to show my wares I would certainly have been going for the clean air, great local design talent and of course a little drop or two of warming vin rouge.

If you are in the area, or feel like a country jaunt come on down: 10am until 5pm on Sunday 24th March at Rochford Wines 878 Maroondah Highway, Coldstream...

Next stop: Finders Keepers Autumn/Winter in Melbourne. You will find me amid the throngs of Melbournians scouting for beautifully designed and made anything and everything this April. I will be showcasing the most recent collection (We dance...) and those who make it along will get a sneak peek at the upcoming winter colours and a couple of new samples will be available for custom orders...



I can't wait for this one - Finders Keepers are renowned for creating markets with a wonderful atmosphere and I am thrilled to be taking Jack of Diamonds along. The carefully curated selection of designers and makers I saw at last years market was outstanding and they have done it again with another high calibre line up this year. If you are keen to see who is showing at the market this time around - savvy market goers are probably already planning their lists of must-visit stalls - check out the designer profiles here...

If crowds, great music and very Melbourne mobile food vendors sounds like your cup of tea, come on down to the Royal Exhibition Buildings in Carlton on Friday April 5th (for some late night shopping - 6pm until 10pm) and Saturday April 6th (from 10am until 5pm)...

Later stops: If you miss the other stops on the knitwear adventure I'll let you in on some news... Jack of Diamonds is in the midst of yet-to-be-confirmed plans for an exciting pop-up venture with the amazing Pop Craft - all I can say is this: if you are in the city this April keep your eyes peeled for glimpses of Pop Craft colour and Jack of Diamonds knits...
