And oh boy, do Addicted to Fabric have fabrics to love. I spent the weekend there, teaching a couple of classes.The fabric design includes viewmaster slides, coffee cups with recognisable motifs and all manner of nostalgia in beautiful, warm colours. Gotta love
This is a bag-in-progress, beautifully made by Rebecca. Unfortunately I forgot to photograph the full length of fabric (but the roll of fabric is still in the shop if you want to see it) and I forgot to photograph the nearly-finished bag.
The ribbon stand is always bedazzling.... and this appears to be the only photo I took of the gloriously inspiring shop floor.
This was my third trip to Addicted to Fabric, and I must say that it's always a pleasure. I'm always incredibly well looked-after by Jenny and the girls and it's fabulous to meet new people, put faces to familiar names and meet the people behind the blogs or PatternReview profiles.
Thanks to Frances for showing me the amazing antique purse frames from her late mother's stash (and for being so very lovely, herself).
As you can see by all the smiles (...?!!), everyone had loads of fun...
the workshops I'm teaching in September at Addicted to Fabric have booked out and there is a waiting list for them. We're discussing the scheduling of another class to cater for those who miss out, so it's probably a good idea to put your name down there if you're from around the Canberra area and want to take part.
If you're in other parts of Australia, you might be able to find a class near you HERE. If you can't see a class near you, perhaps you need to speak to your local sewing store or workshop facilitator....?
