Visit to Amitie in Melbourne
This photo is of what I acquired from my visit to Amitie in Melbourne. Wow! Can I just tell you how inspiring this shop is? It was probably the most inspiring shop I have ever visited. The projects, the fabrics as well as the people! I was lost amongst the fabrics as soon as I entered the shop. It felt like I had been there 10 minutes, but in fact my dad mentioned that I was in there for over an hour. Ooops. What I liked best about the shop is that there are plenty of fabrics to be found that one does not find easily on the internet. Many of the fabrics are Japanese, but there is also a substantial supply of Liberties, linens and eclectic styles of fabrics. Right at the entrance, the Steampunk quilt by Jen Kingwell was displayed in all its stunning glory! It is quite something to behold in real life and I could not resist buying the pattern for it. It is now high on my must do list!!!
If you ever get a chance to visit a quilt shop in Melbourne, I really recommend a visit to Amitie!
