A New Quilt Shop in Town

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!

It's always fun going into a new quilt shop - and I always HAVE to buy something too :)
Oh and have my photo taken outside the shop.
Merry Christmas to you Jenny. We are off in the van for Christmas by a river.

Yes, it's great fun going in to a new (to me) quilt shop. I have only been disapointed once when the shop owner wouldn't stop talking on the phone to acknowledge me inside her door.
But this shop, like most, had a very friendly and pleasant staff member.
