We enjoyed renewing friendships with those who had been in Hobart for our Lets Get Stitched retreat there in 2012. We made friends with those who were on their first time at Lets Get Stitched this year. We visited new shops and businesses, explored Hahndorf, which I was pleased to see still had the gorgeous character I remember from being there over 30 years ago.
First stop on Friday was Hetties Patch. It has a beautiful range of fabrics and other fun items to look at (and buy). The staff there probably thought a whirlwind had gone through the shop after we left. There was so much retail therapy going on.
I was very pleased with my additions to my stash.
I bought some coordinating fat quarters, some yardage (the green for a quilt binding, the snowflakes for another Santa Sack), a Vintage Modern jelly roll - I have been admiring Vintage Modern for a long time so gave in to temptation, as it was a good price, including a 10% discount, and also some small items for the birthday stash.
We had a small amount of show and tell - here is Lucky with a beautiful quilt.
It was such a wonderful day and night to start off our retreat.
