Scrumblers' Gallery Online

The Gallery is dedicated to the memory of Sylvia Cosh, her creative work and her teaching. When it opened, few people had access to space on the internet or knew how to use it, so our main purpose was to enable anyone, who so desired, to show their freeform crochet. That situation has now changed beyond all recognition and, although the Gallery is still on view, it is now closed to new exhibitors

Crochet Forum 2003: Scrumblers Unite!

This TAFTA Forum-within-a-Forum at Geelong was a huge excitement for all of us who are into free-form crochet – a whole week-long convention devoted to 'scrumbling' (creative freeform crochet) – which took place within TAFTA Forum – one of the most successful and exciting textile events in the world, run by The Australian Forum for Textile Arts.

This was the brain-child of Jenny Dowde, who, with tutors Prudence Mapstone, Suzie Bowring-Miller and James Walters, led an exploration into creative crochet, which was loosely based on the theme, 'The Garden of Eden', and included the fabulous serpent, 'Scrumbalot'
