Brisbane Craft & Quilt Fair 2013 (2)

Today (Sunday), I went to the Craft Show again - I scheduled the extra visit to take a Janome workshop - showcasing their brand new 15000 machine - sewing & embroidery - its a dream machine - and a dream to own at this stage!!

I made a few extra purchases today so here is my loot!


Some Washaway stabiliser, Silver & Gold embroidery threads (in different tonings), 3 tiny charms to add to my Quilt Diva wall hanging (a bargain at 3 for $1) a pattern for some Fat Fairies (as well as a stamp for their faces and stamp pad) and a Mug Rug (using those new dissolving hexagons), some iron on transfers, 3 fat quarters and "that book" from Natalie Bird.
(There might be a few other little things that I am not admitting to for now....)

I also had time to see the quilts.
For those not in Brisbane - unfortunately one of the quilts was stolen on Day 1 - such a dreadful thing to happen and I am sure there will be changes for next year.....but it's sad to think that someone could take something so precious.

There were - of course - a number of outstanding quilts - this one in particular was photo worthy..  A friendly White Glove lady pointed it out to me (Thanks Cheryl!!!)

The hexagons are 1/4".  Go figure



Sunday is a very relaxed day to go to the show - a lot less people and a few retailers were offering discounts.
