If you are travelling to Melbourne this summer check out A Wondrous Gift: Christmas at The Johnston Collection 2011-2012 3 November 2011 – 24 February 2012 , where Christmas comes spectacularly to life with superb creations, not just decorations, more like precious jewels originating from the exquisite objects in at The Johnston Collection. Involving numerous artists and craftspeople including The Embroiderers Guild, Victoria (NE and Albury Wodonga branches), patchwork and textile artists, and multi-media artists, this year it is in Victoria’s North Eastern region – Wangaratta and its environs – that creativity has flowed. Inspired by the life and collection of William Johnston and the story of Christmas.
