What a line up!

We've had a great time organising this market in partnership with our very generous and accomodating host, the State Library of Victoria and we hope you can make it to the market tomorrow to come support the best and freshest makers in Melbourne at the moment.

To view images of the work that'll be part of the market, click here to be taken to the market's thumbnail gallery. And while you're at it, have you RSVP'd to the Facebook event? Click here to RSVP 'YES!' and help us reach a guestlist of 500 attendees... (supportive yes-es are fine by us too - that's when you actually can't attend, but you say yes anyway because the event is so awesome)

We'd also like to extend a big thank you to our buddies at ThreeThousand for including us in their 'Outs' section in this week's edition of the newsletter.

And a big thank you to SLV for the ad that is in this weekend's A2 section of The Age on page 11.

Remember, it's:

Hi Kim
The market was wonderful - so many lovely things to see. And the light was just gorgeous - it would be great if Craft Hatch can visit this space again in the future.
