Australia Day in Berrima

Berrima has been traditionally a place that the Southern Highlands come to on Australia Day. The town really is packed on this day as there is a large market in the park with live music, display of vintage vehicles, stalls, food stalls and rides for the kids. At lunch time there is a parade through the town put together by the community which often includes marching bands, clubs from the area, some of the schools also have floats and many vintage cars. It is a fun day to be had by all and really gives you a great sense of what it is to be Australian and to enjoy the day. If you haven't been to Berrima on Australia then perhaps next year it will be the place to come!

Here are some pictures of the parade

First Class of the Year

Today was our first class for 2010 - Easy and Fast Log Cabin. The ladies all had a great time and once again the selection of fabrics all varied greatly and produced fantastic results. Here are some of the photos from the class. This class will be run again in later in the year and has proved a very popular class.
