Judy Newman weekend workshop 18th March - 26th March

The inspiring Judy Newman is coming back to Adelaide to teach a weekend workshop at Hettie's Patch. Here she will teach appliqué and piecing techniques, and you can see how she includes embroidery and quilting to continue the story of her quilts. She has a lovely sensibility of colour and pattern that is reminiscent of a vintage look but with clear gentle colours. She will help you choose colour and pattern so that you have something you really want and something you really want to continue to work on. If you would like to see more of her work, her instagram account is Judynewman, and her website is called averyfinehouse.com.au.

The weekend workshop will be from 9:45am to 3:30pm on the Saturday and Sunday, and lunch and will be included on both days (as will afternoon tea). For further enquiries or to book your place on this great weekend, call the shop on 08 8346 0548.

Thread & Ribbon cards

We have some new thread and ribbon cards that are designed and manufactured in Melbourne by the gorgeous store Luccello. Inspired by antique ephemera and fabrics in the Luccello archives we are pleased to be able to supply them here in Adelaide. They come as a set of three with whimsically sweet pictures on each reminiscent of vintage French designs. It doesn't matter where you are, your threads and ribbons will be much happier and look even more beautiful kept on these cards.

Japanese Wovens

We have some beautiful new Japanese woven fabrics in store. The colours are as gentle as the fabric is soft. These are lovely used in applique and we have so many ideas for them, it's just a matter of deciding what to do first!

New Art Gallery fabrics

We're adding to our collection of interesting Art Gallery fabrics for you to choose from. The fabrics are part of a collection called Nightfall, but rather than using them all together, I think they are so lovely on their own, you could easily pair these with other pieces such as spots, stripes, or even an interesting floral or geometric. Art Gallery fabrics are imaginative and so you can be too when it comes to choosing your fabric pieces.

Advent Calendars

We have some new advent calendars that have recently arrived. There are clear instructions on the side of the panels to help you make these lovely gifts for someone special this Christmas. The Sophie Advent Calendar has bright colours on a white background while the Snow Village Calendar is more earthy with traditional colours. Also arriving with the calendars were some new Christmas fabrics with gentle designs of trees, reindeers, and snowflakes. Now is the time to get moving on those special hand made gifts for Christmas because they really are the best gifts.
