Immersed in Stitches…

What a gorgeous day of friends, food and frivolity we all had at the “Immerse yourself in Stitching” day. It was lovely to finally have all the sewing sisters together at this special day.Here are a few photos of some special people who we shared the day with.


The wonderful designers had put so much effort in before the day even began that it was amazing to see the room all set up with our treasure bags waiting. See here for a visual. Here are the gorgeous woman responsible (pictured with Janelle)

Janelle was lucky enough to receive the following goodies during the day:

She also treated herself to one of Melly’s beautiful bag samples, which Kylie will be studying as she purchased the “Toffee Apple” pattern and plans to make her own version.

Tonight has been spent finishing off a modified version of the Amy Butler ‘Diaper Bag’ (NO, we are not pregnant!) from her Little Stitches book – & drum roll please… here they are


IMG_0368 Katherine’s Bag made out of ‘Recess’ fabric bought on our trip to Warburton (see last post). This  may well be the first time she has purchased and sewn the fabric within a week!

Guess which fabric Janelle chose to make hers out of?



Such Fun :)


Off to do some more hand stitching on our Immerse projects (more about them later) whilst we have a hot chocolate, watch a DVD and eat Connoisseur ice cream.

Off to Miss Marples tomorrow for a girls day out – including little girls :) we’ll miss you Rachel!

Happy Stitching
