Morning Tea at the new Quilt Shop

Eltham's new Quilt Shop provided a lovely morning tea to about ten enthusiastic customers on Friday morning.  "Cake O'Clock" will be held every Friday from 10 am to noon, and due to demand, bookings are essential.  Everyone (except me) brought a patchwork project of some kind to work on; I wasn't sure what to expect, so I just took my Ipad with photos of my latest projects, and showed them to the girls.  I spent time looking at the books they had in the shop, as well as the fabrics and accessories.  They have a great range, and are happy to get anything else in for customers requests.   I bought half a dozen postcard quilt patterns.  I'd never seen them before, but they are a super idea! 

I am planning to go every week (sorry Ken), as I envisage getting a lot of sewing done that I wouldn't get done at home, as well as having help and advice on hand if I get stuck on something.   Watch this space for my weekly report!  I do hope to see some of my blogging friends at the shop from time to time; they will need all the support they can get until they are well known in the area and build up a regular customer base.
Their hours are presently Mon to Fri. 9.30 am to 5 pm and Saturday 9.30 to 1 pm. But the managers say that this may change in time due to demand.

What a nice idea. New quilt shops are few and far between in these parts. Lucky you!
