Golden Hands - Inaugural Meeting 17th Feb 2011

We had so much fun yesterday when five Golden Hands members got together for an excursion with crafty intentions!  

Pia, Bel, Lucianne and I met at Flashback in Northcote  ..... what a treasure trove of vintage and modern vintage fabrics and wall paper!  A great mix of colours, patterns, textures and inspired furnishings (lampshades in luscious fabrics!).  We looked, we touched, we drooled.  We left empty handed but I'm sure we'll be back when we have some projects in mind for the wonderful textiles we saw!!


We then headed across to GJ's Discount Fabrics and perused the three levels of spangly leotard fabrics, sheer organzas, thread, buttons and gorgeous patchwork fabrics.  We met Adriana there after spotting her across the road and yelling out of a second storey window!  Funny.  I bought some cute fabric (owls and stripes) and Lucianne bought some amazing fabric for what will be a stunning quilt!  Very impressed with the array of fabric, how it was organised and the service provided.  We are going there again, for sure!

Lunch was had at Vege 2 Go at 452 Lygon St. YUM!  The kids had a great play and the food was lovely!  

All round what a great day we had!  Thanks Girls!!  We hope to meet again at Lucianne's place for a quilting workshop!  Bring your projects!  More details soon!

happy crafters!
x Miss G
