Thanks to June of Junez Scrapz who alerted me to the new quilt shop in town. Although we have moved away from the Hutt Valley, we had a few things to do in the area, so I took the opportunity to pop in to Quilt Works, at 517 High Street, Lower Hutt. And what a lovely shop it is. Adrienne was the friendly face behind the counter yesterday, and was quite happy for me to take some photos of this new venture.
Quilt Works has a great range of fabric, from Kaffe Fassett, Japanese, black and whites, 1930s, batiks, Kiwiana, and I’m sure much more that I didn’t quite see. Threads, buttons, trims, and a great range of scissors. Lots of patterns and books too.
The shop plans to offer classes next year, and as well as being a Bernina Agent, also sharpens scissors, (that’s handy). I didn’t leave empty handed and bought myself a stitchery pattern for a cushion. I just might make this to go in my new sewing room!
