Dawson Street South,

Stitching together a love of sewing, baking, and nostalgia the highly successful Ballarat Apron Festival returns this year to celebrate all things apron. Connecting with the Ballarat Heritage Weekend, the festival will showcase a range of vintage and modern aprons, focusing on their variety and the people who wear them. This year’s festival will embrace the theme ‘A Day in the Life of an Apron in the 1950’s' and will feature displays of vintage, modern and competition aprons as well as craft opportunities, a makers market, and the chance to enjoy morning or afternoon tea. The event will also host a special exhibit of aprons from the ABC Costume Collection, including items from the popular Ballarat-based The Doctor Blake Mysteries television series, and an art show by the Ballarat Society of Artists. Entries for the Apron Making Competition are now open, and with interest growing from overseas and interstate, competition for the honour of being named champion apron maker should be fierce! Application forms and further details can be found on the website....
