Sew Fab at Narrandera visit

Just home last night from SEW FAB Narrandera teaching for 4 days for the lovely Leanne.

Leanne has only recently come into town (so to speak) with her shop. The shop was just 2 blocks away from the main street but now has a shop front which is wonderful.

Narrandera is around the Wagga Wagga, Griffith region. Travel by small plane takes an hour( ish ) to get there. Such a pretty shop full of delightful vintage treasures like miniature sewing machines, dolls, toys etc, a lovely touch to make the shop very warm , welcoming and cosy.

The old building I think was a bank with a couple of vaults still there. This adds to the character of the shop.

I have taught for Leanne 4 years in a row now  and it has been wonderful to watch her store grow,. Leanne is truly a lovely caring owner who wants the best for her ladies. As a Bernina dealer I had access to a Bernina 770 while I am there so  very comfortable feels like home.

We we all very spoil with loads of delicious foods and stock from the shop in the hall which she hired for the workshops so we all had plenty of space.

I am thrilled with the results from the Daisy paths 2 day workshop as you can see some beautiful cushions and runners in the making.

When I return to shops or groups it is always wonderful to spend time with the ladies after class as well. We had dinner each night together catching up if we have met before of getting to know each other if new friends. 

The first 2 days I taught the Let's quilt machine quilting 2 day class. These are : 

The Let's Quilt Walking Foot and Theory, as well as  Let's Quilt Free motion quilting The magical 6 are now as On Line classes for all to learn from. You can learn from the comfort of your own home a one on class with me. So easy to access and enjoy the classes. Watch the classes many times as you like, stop and start at anytime. Total control of your viewing. 

We were very lucky to have a private viewing of the home next door. Wow , a beautiful old home which was a Mutual Society building but now converted into a home. The owners are massive antique collectors with a HUGE doll collection.   
Dolls everywhere beautifully displayed in cabinets, rare dolls, collections like Alice in wonderland , The wizard of Oz etc...

I am very thankful for the beautiful smooth  flight home fly last night, this one I actually relaxed and watched the sun set. 

Thank you ladies I had a terrific time , you did wear me out so I am having a relaxed chilled day off today.
Happy quilting
