I am going... Are you?



This time next week Jo, Helen and I will be taking off on a plane to Melbourne to attend the AQC over three days! I am starting to believe it is actually going to happen. We will meet Jodie in person and be helping out the girls from The Quilted Crow - come and visit their stall - they ALWAYS please. I have plans to buy...

1. Fray Stop - Thanks to Christine's feedback (who will also be there!)
2. Invisible thread (the one I like)
3. Finger pads for needle work (I have not seen them here in southern Tasmania)
4. Look at sewing frames for quilting - Thanks to Sarah who has raved on about them.
5. Possibly a BOM - but I have to REALLY like it.

WOO HOO

In answer to the question, no, sorry I won't be coming. I know they say "it's a small world" but from one side of this little old planet to the other is just a bit too far even for a quilting convention.
Have a wonderful time, Maria x

Despite being the quilt novice I am (just where is that picnic rug again??) I might have to go and have a sticky beak.

Hope you have a fantastic time!

Have lots of fun, and I hope you find all your knick knacks, you can never have too many! Kind of wish I was going, even though I've vowed not to buy any new stuff till I finish the old. Look forward to a blog report when you're back!
