I may be biased, but I have just spent an amazing time at Craft Kingdom, my friend Nora’s quilt shop. In fact, DD and I stayed there for a week because Nora has a guest room upstairs 🙂 Maybe that is what makes it the best quilt shop in the world….! Imagine waking up and being able to wander around downstairs and enjoy the fabric, notions, patterns and other quilting goodies. Imagine being able to spread out in the classroom and sew from early morning till late at night… And if you run out of something… or left something at home in Australia, you can just wander into the next room and grab what you need 🙂
There is no photo of the front of the shop, because the shop is in a house – “villa” as they call it here. So no traditional shop front and it is pretty much word of mouth to find it. But it is busy most days with quilting and dressmaking classes, as well as ladies dropping in for a “sit and sew” and to shop.
There are lots of fat quarters of course…
And a lovely selection of batiks, from which I chose the fabric for the Melon Block quilt in the previous post:
I bought this cute fat quarter pack for a special project that I am hoping to tackle tomorrow:
The reason we got to stay at this lovely place for a week was because DH was away on a business trip to Romania… thankfully we were not bored for one minute while he was gone!
Well, it’s getting late but I think I’ll have a cuppa and do some surfing before I go to bed… till next time…
