a new shop..........

Finally I can tell you a secret I have been keeping......................
Some of you would know Sandy's blog Shiralee Stitches.............she's been silent on there for the last year or more because she has been so busy with her new business..............
about July last year she launched Shiralee Stitches...........a portable patchwork shop..........
She has regular classes and does markets/craft shows and also takes the shop to your patchwork group if you want................i'm going to see how far west she will travel............

  5. Hello Donna,

    Sandy has done a wonderful job with her website. It's great to see another shop opening in Australia instead of closing. Thanks for letting everyone know about it.

    Happy days.

  6. What a pleasure to be able to move around the online shop just as if it was a brick n mortar shop- moving from each category as if I was walking . Great job and love the kit section as it's always so much easier if the decisions have been made for you. Good luck.

  19. How wonderful to have a patchwork shop. I had wondered what happened to Sandy, as she had a blog post which said she was opening her shop and then no further posts. If my memory has not failed me, you helped Sandy and I at about the same tome to start up our blogs. Have signed up for her newsletter and looking forward to shopping.
