Although I’m on the mailing list for Angels in Gumboots, in Ashhurst, this was my first opportunity to call in and see this shop. I met up with the owner Tracey who had a stand at the Kowhai Quilters exhibition in Feilding a couple of months ago. We are currently away in our caravan for the weekend, camping at the Ashhurst Domain Camp Ground, read about it here on our other blog.
I chatted to the friendly ladies at the shop, and was given permission to take photos. Each quilt shop is different, and has it’s own particular personality. There is a nice range of fabrics, threads, buttons and such-like, and a lovely large class room too.
I found a couple of green fat quarters to take home which will work well in the quilt I’m making for my daughter, and bought some fusible web for appliqué too. There were lots of lovely quilts on display. I particularly loved this beautiful Lone Star quilt, done in a large floral fabric and a black back-ground.
If you are passing by Ashhurst, do pop in to Angels in Gumboots, you will be made most welcome.
