Quilters Bazaar

Yesterday myself and two friends finally visited the new Quilters Bazaar shop in Gisborne. Our planned visit last month was postponed due to the adverse weather conditions which led to the destructive bush fires which continue to burn. After the rain and cooler conditions this past week we felt it was safe to venture out yesterday. The shop is a treasure trove of fabric and threads, with a good selection of patterns and books.The beautiful Recipe for Friendship fabrics greet you just inside the front door, oh that is after the coffee tables, yes you can get coffee here too. The colours in this fabric range are vibrant and the theme make it perfect for a kitchen quilt.
Look at all that delicious thread, a whole stand of Threadworx overdyed embroidery threads from the USA.
A gorgeous dolly among some more of the beautiful fabrics. The bolts of fabric which line an entire wall of this light and spacious shop are organised by ranges with a good selection to suit all tastes. Dolly was just beautiful with a wig knitted from a shaggy yarn and very cool bloomers under her dress.
We spent a lot of time in the quilt shop and all came away with some gorgeous purchases to compliment future projects. I will show what I got later when I take photo's of what I have been working on this week.
This beautiful rose was one of many on a large bush growing in a lane way off the main street.
Happy Crafting
