Thread and Ginger

On Thursday I visited "Thread and Ginger" patchwork Boutique to take some of my patterns along with their samples down to Natalie and Caryn. It is such a gorgeous shop I just had to take a couple of snaps to share with you. Natalie and Caryn are so friendly and welcoming which makes it such a lovely experience. There's loads of lovely fabric, notions, patterns and books, loads of beautiful samples to inspire you and you can view Natalie's gorgeous designs as well. Natalie has been very supportive and helpful to me in regard to my designing work and I appreciate her  advice and kindness so much. It's wonderful to receive that generosity of spirit from another designer especially when you are just starting out on that journey. Thanks Natalie so much.
So if you are in the area visit the girls at "Thread and Ginger"at Victoria Point Lakeside, Victoria Point. You'll be so glad you did. You'll come away very inspired.
Hope everyone is keeping nice and warm and getting a bit of stitching's the perfect weather for it along with a nice hot cuppa.
