Rockhampton's "Crafty Kate" prepares for market

KATE Dyne has been busy at her sewing machine.

She is making children's clothing, in preparation for the Handmake Market that is on its way to Rockhampton.

Everything from clothes to jewellery, household items and food will be up for grabs. The markets will be held in Rocky once a month from July, after a successful run in the Brisbane region.

Kate, who is coordinating the markets, says there's nothing like it in Rockhampton.

"People are excited that this type of market is coming to town, it's all handmade," she said.

"It's a great opportunity for local craftspeople to show their talents."

The market will aim to give local handmade businesses and people an opportunity to have a regular monthly shopfront.

About 90 market stalls are expected to show off a variety of handmade creations.

Kate, who owns handmade business Kree8, said she hoped the market would take off in Rockhampton.

There is still space for more stallholders. If you are interested, you can contact Kate at rockhampton@ thehandmadeexpo.com.au.
