is alive and well!
When I first moved here two years ago I was frustrated at the lack of places I could go to buy fabrics and quilting stuff. So, I dug a little deeper, and I found plenty of opportunities to get my fabric fixes. In the current issue of Down Under Quilts there is a special feature listing the local places you can shop.

Also on the subject of quilty things on the coast ... last Saturday night I attended the the annual 2GO Give Me 5 for Kids Charity Gala
Ball. The hosts of the local morning radio show, Sarah and Dwayne were the special guests. I had heard Sarah comment about sewing on air about a year ago, so I had vowed that when I went to the Gala Ball I would introduce myself. I really like to meet local people who sew, and those in the media especially, because I love to see the word spread - that sewing, quilting, craft, knitting and crochet are COOL, and not just what Nanna-used-to-do. I was surprised and delighted that when I introduced myself she told me not only does she sew, making curtains and stuff, she actually LOVES QUILTING! I look forward to having a Quilting Bee with her some time soon!
