Happy New Year

This year we have had some wonderful workshops and started a new one of our own in one of our favourite Yorke Peninsula towns, Port Clinton.

Teachers from overseas can draw a crowd, and we've had two fabulous teachers this past year. Janet Clare taught a class on drawing with your sewing machine, while Tula Pink took us through her vivid Tula Nova quilt. Our wonderful interstate teachers came to Adelaide to show us their beautiful works too. Margaret Sampson-George, Judy Newman, Kathy Doughty, and Wendy Williams all made their way over throughout the year, and it's lovely that we can catch up with them on a regular basis (well, we try anyway!)

I've just updated the calendar for our 2018 workshops, and there will be more added as we have dates confirmed. If you are interested in attending any, please email us at hetties@bigpond.net.au, and we will be in touch.

We are very excited to be opening our new shop at 138 Port Road Hindmarsh from Thursday January 4th 2018, 10am - 4pm. Our new shop hours in our new shop will be Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm. Closed Sundays and Public Holidays.

Our old shop at 294 Port Road Hindmarsh will also be open from Thursday January 4th 2018, from 10am-2pm (limited hours due to staffing). In this shop, we will have our fabric that is on sale, which is a minimum cut of 50cm and priced at $15/m. Both our wideback fabrics and pre-wrapped fabrics are 30% off of the marked price. There are some beautiful fabrics down there, you never know what you'll find.

Here's to another year of making things we love, learning from things we don't, and trying to enjoy the ride either way.




Hettie's Patch Pencil Roll

Pencil rolls have been around for a while, and for good reason. Little children love to match the pencils to the fabric slots, and slide them safely into place. Each strip of fabric was chosen for each pencil in the pack of twelve. The kit has two pieces of linen and either one can be used as the outside fabric, while the other is used for the inside pocket. The ribbon used in the sample shown is vintage French hat ribbon, and is available in the shop, but has not been included in this kit (as it is $12/m). Instead we've included navy tape in some kits, and lavender tape in others. Easy for little fingers to tie in a bow, or a knot. The pattern is included, is easy to follow, and if you have any queries, please contact the shop. The kit contains all fabrics, tape, pencils, and a pattern, and is $24.95.

Thursday Night Sewing

Thursday night sewing classes will begin at Hettie's Patch on 3/10/13. They will go from 6pm-9pm, and will be $20 per class. If you would like to learn to sew, need a hand finishing off a project, or if you would like some new ideas, then this could be the class for you. Bookings are essential, so please don't hesitate to call us on 83460548.
