The Great Hottie Challenge Exhibition Opening
Oh what a night!
The Hottie Challenge Exhibition opening at Open Drawer was a smashing success - the gallery was full, everyone had a great time, there were lots of red dots, and lots of donations for the favourite hotties..... all in support of The Margaret Pratt Foundation.
I quickly snapped these photos when I arrived (so they're a little bit blurry), and I've missed an entire section - sorry! I'm sure there'll be lots more photos around the blogs, so I'll be sure to add the links so that everyone can see all the lovely snapshots.
I loved the way that the hotties were hung at different levels.....
....and grouped together in similar themes, colours, or stories.
Each and every hottie is just SO different and amazing and beautiful.
I really hope that I remembered to thank everybody - Prue and Robyn at Open Drawer for organising this amazing event, each and every lovely person who made a hottie, made a donation, and came along lastnight.
At one stage of the evening, both rooms of the gallery were absolutely full!
I also need to thank my sister Rach for bringing over beautiful flowers beforehand, and to Cathy and Caroline for bringing along beautiful flowers lastnight. I need to have a party at home now to show everyone the flower arrangements!
The exhibition runs until July 24th, and I think it would make a lovely school holiday outing. All of the little people that came along with their parents lastnight had fun picking their favourite hotties.
I still need to organise at least two more trips - I'd love to take my mum and my aunties for a visit, and I also need to take my sisters and some girlfriends.
I highly recommend the cute little cafe two door up for coffee and cake.
The total count lastnight was 113 Hotties on the walls, but there are still a few more coming in. They came from Victoria, Tassie, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, New Zealand and even the UK!
I'm so proud of the way that crafters are always so generous.... it certainly warms the cockles.
You girls ROCK!
