Sewing at Amitie Textiles

At 8am last Saturday morning, members of KQ boarded a bus and we set off for a 2.5hr drive to the coastal town of Torquay - destination Amitie Textiles.

"Herbie" the bus and his driver got us there and returned home all safe and sound.

Walking in the door of Amitie caused some gasps of wonder at the wonderful open space and beautiful works on display.

Looking around the walls, looking around the space, there was eye-candy everywhere.  So much inspiration. 

Then, after browsing, shopping and coffee, some of us settled down to do some sewing.

Some brought projects which needed more fabric,

Others worked on what they had...

Coffee, friends, a nice space and sewing really is the best way to spend a day.

 And, there's always one with magnificent show'n'tell!  A gorgeous quilt.

On the way home, B spied these silos out of the bus window - stunning.

A purely blissful way to start the year with our group.  2018 promises to be wonderful. :)
