I bought a metre of the yardage on the left and gathered these fat quarters that sort of went with each other. I had no idea in mind yet, just wanted some fabrics for remembrance of my trip. We chatted with the owner for a few minutes, who said her shop was for sale and she planned to retire after that. She told us of another quilt shop in town, and Susie asked if I wanted to go there, as it was not far. Did I!
Kay's Fabrics was also a Janome dealer's and was stuffed to the gills with bolts and bolts, kits, machines, and everything else fabric and sewing related you could think of. The shop manager (or owner, not sure) said she had been having large embroidery workshops and that was why the shop was in such disarray. Susie has a Janome and while she and I were shopping, she called her son Tim and asked him to bring up her machine when he came from Brisbane as she wanted to sew again, starting with some little clothes for her granddaughter. There was great variety but we just took a quick look and I found some more Australian fabrics.
