Can hardley believe that it's been over a week since our visit to the wonderful "Hettie's Patch" in Hindmarsh, South Australia.
If you've never been to this store, then it's time to put it on your list! It's packed to the rafters with the most wonderful fabric ranges such as Tilda and beautiful Liberty prints . .
gorgeous linens and wonderful wool . . . lovely woven stripes . .
We travelled on Thursday and arrived late in the day, in time to meet the wonderful Sue Daley of Sue Daley Designs at the Adelaide airport.
Friday saw the ladies arriving early, eager to commence their classes - here's what we were teaching over the three days . . ."Aunt Betina's Parlour" by D Crow
and "Easter Googies" by me again, L Crow
The three of us worked on a collaborative quilt named "Brandy Alexander" which the ladies worked on also . . It uses Sue's range of fabrics called "French Courtyard" which Hettie's Patch have in their store . .
It was wonderful to meet so many ladies, eager to work with beautiful wool and try our technique of glue and staples . . . a lot of work was achieved over the weekend by everyone and we'll be looking forward to seeing some finished pieces in the near future!
A very big thank you to Lorraine and Earl, and all of her wonderful staff who made us feel so welcome and made the weekend go like clockwork . . . thank you. And to all the ladies who came along to the weekend, thank you so much - it was lovely to meet you all and we hope that our paths cross again some day - keep on stitching!
Until next time,
Leonie & Deirdre - The Quilted Crow GIrls
