Woman of Wool

You may recall an interview with the lovely Jackie O’Brien from Hazel Green. Well she has recently been invited to be a woman of wool at Bendigo Wool Week. She continues to develop new ideas to encourage her clients at Hazel Green to use and create with wool, the most amazing natural fibre. It was such a treat to see her features in the latest Country Style magazine. Virginia Imhoff in her article “Pins and Needles” provides us with some new insight into Jackie’s experiences.Today she is at Sheepvention in Hamilton in the Western District, working alongside talented artist Valerie Little. Together they have organised the Australian Wool Industries Young Fashion Designer Awards.
