I can't tell you how much I think of this weekend and so many of the woman involved. It is a special thing and I am so grateful to be a part of it now. Special thanks to Sheridan and everyone who sponsors this and those that travel to be there, it is wonderful because of you all.
Day 1 of Sew it Together was the Friday Shopping Trip. We started at Addicted to Fabric which is a fantastic fabric shop in Canberra. I found everything on my list that I needed and then a few things not on my list, but only because I didn't know I needed them until I saw them.
Such a great range, and plenty of space too. I wish this was my local shop, but I can take heart from the fact I do drive through Canberra once or twice a year and am already planning future trips.
The next stop was at Bison. So much beauty in this shop, not craft related but beautiful regardless and well worth a visit. I bought three milk jugs and they look wonderful sitting on my shelf at home.
Last stop was Shop Handmade where we ate macarons and drank some sparkling wine. I may have had too much of the bubbly stuff but have decided the least said about that the better ;)
And then Kylie arrived! Half of the fun of Sew it Together is in catching up with friends. I drank her share of the sparkling wine as she was running late, that could be where I went wrong...
I will post about the rest of the weekend over the next day or so, it is a lot to cover in one post.
