Farewell Canberra

My fiancee Luke has been offered a great job based in Bangkok and I've decided to move Formosa and myself with him. It'll be a great opportunity to evolve Formosa from handmade by (exhausted) lil' ol me to fairtrade & handmade, hopefully by a co-op of women. There is much to learn about South East Asian textile traditions too, so I'm very excited ... watch this space!

A big ups must go to Megalo, Mt Majura, our Currawong sock tree, the Portrait Gallery, the birds in my backyard, Tilleys, Black Mountain, O'Connor Ridge, and the National Art Gallery each of which have been wonderful sources of inspiration and support to me these past 2.5 years. I will miss you all.


  1. I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design.
    I had a lot of fun putting it together maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.

  2. The photo's are beautiful Jennifer, it's hard leaving a place when you have so many things you love about it but it's also great to go on a new adventure and broaden your horizons. Have fun with researching and learning about the textile traditions - lucky you, what a great opportunity. Looking forward to seeing Formosa's progress.
