Shop Hours – Covid Style- October 2020


Its all a bit weird at the moment, but l am in a very fortunate position where my shop in in Regional Victoria.

So l am able to trade,

l cannot imagine how the Melbourne shops are coping with not being able to open.

So l thought l should update the hours that l am currently operating.

Mondays : Closed

Tuesday- Friday : 10.00 am – 4.00 pm

Saturdays : 10.00 am – 2.00 pm.

My website has had some work done on it recently so it now includes an online store.

For those of you that have web shops know that it doesnt happen overnight…and its a long task loading.

So at the  moment l am fitting that in with running the shop, so apologies in advance for the lack of content.

I seem to change my mind each day with what l want to do … so thats not helpful.

Anyway you can always catch me by phoning the shop or by email.

So my plan is to get better at the whole newsletter, website thingo…….. lets see what l can achieve, the bar is not set very high so it may be achievable.



Wendy Williams

I was so very lucky to be able to have Wendy Williams come from Sydney and teach in my shop.

A long time fan of Wendy’s methods and of course her super fantastic quilts and cushions.

We were lucky also to be able to view a suitcase full of her works…. the detail in Over the Hill amazing… it’s very hard to pick a favourite.

The girls in the class worked well and were very happy with the day.

Wendy will back next year … yay
