To Market.. To Market... buy a ....well, not much... but i did have an amazing time!!

My passes and a Pressie to greet me... left on my pillow from Saffron! ;)
Last Weekend i was able to pack up, leave my world behind and head off on a fantastic and much needed Girly weekend to Melbourne for the Australian Quilt Market. Kate and i jumped on a plane EARLY Saturday morning...and spent the day at the Market... where we met up with Saffron and Toni. These two women are so inspiring...i could really just sit and listen to them talk for hours.

Kate, Saffron and Me
Kate, Toni and Me
.....and we did!! The four of us had a great time hitting the Melbourne restaurant scene...and stayed up til 3am in the hotel chatting chatting and more chatting.. I miss you girls already!! When is our next catch up..??

The Market was fun.. seeing all the latest fabric being released... however, spending so much time on the Internet and Quilting blogs...i think Kate and I knew more about the latest fabric than the distributors!! 

Here's a few i saw at the show that i hadn't come across yet....from Kokka...

Being as though i have ventured into the world of doll making... i did purchase some felted wool for case one day i might need it if i ever want to make another can buy some here

I miss you guys...I am so lucky to have 'real life' friends to talk to all about Quilting and Sewing and Fabric non stop!!...Who share the same passion with me. My hubby only indulges me so far..then his eyes glaze over and well, i know its then time to stop!!

Speaking of Girly Weekends...for those of you in Australia, have you heard about..and are you going to this??? A Sew it together... Weekend. Held in Sydney next march 2011... It sounds like a fun event... some of the Sponsors  so far include.. Retro Mummy, Material Obsession, Pink Chalk Fabrics, Hawthorne Threads, Ric Rac, Inner green and ME!! YES me!!... For every one who attends this event will receive a 'goody bag' full of great stuff...and each goodie bag will have one of my patterns in it!! I am so thrilled to be able to Sponsor such a great event. I am loving this whole 'handmade movement' going on here in Australia at the moment. So young and fresh and different! Pop on over and check it out!! Looks like it will be alot of fun! xx


  1. Aw...I miss you too Bec! Was so much fun, wish we could chat for another couple of days - definitley doing it again soon!

  2. I know what you mean about the husband's eyes glazing over after so long. He's pretty much only interested in seeing the finished product of my work.

    Glad you had a nice time :)

  3. I wish I lived in sydney, just for the weekend of Sew it Together!
    Love the fabric with the disc's on it. I have a View Master that must be over 30 years old, I don't let the kids touch it yet!
