Favourite Things Friday

My favourite thing this week is my local quilt shop, Hetties Patch.  Sorry about the size of the photo's but I had to steal them from there website.  The shop is always neat and tidy (unlike my sewing room) and the staff are always friendly, welcoming and helpful.  And sometimes I get to play in the shop  work there as well, and Lorraine kindly stocks some of my patterns.




And they have a lovely large and light filled class room to do classes which is essential for any good Quilt shop.  Lorraine also stocks a wonderful range of gifts.

Short but sweet, want to see some more FTF head over here.

Oh yes, that's one of my favourite things too! Hetties is a truly beautiful shop. If any of you are ever in Adelaide (Or within 7 or 800 kms) you have to pop in. So. Worth. It.

It is indeed the prettiest and friendliest quilt shop in Adelaide

there's nothing better than perusing a beautiful fabric shop, and buying a few of their treasures!

I am hoping to stop in there next year when we come through Adelaide...it's on my list. It sounds lovely and it's great to have people to support your designing endeavours isn't it.

Sounds like a lovely place. There's no quilt shop in my small town so it's an hour drive north or south to find one.

Michelle said...

Aren't local quilt shops just the best?

I agree, Hetties is the best!

I'm proud of you for supporting your local business! It's the best way to increase revenue to your town! :)
Glad you have a good resource.

I love Hetties. It's like walking into an adult version of a lolly shop.

I managed to do significant financial damage last time I was there...Mr. P breathed a sigh of relief last time we drove past and it was closed.

I can completely relate to why this is a favourite thing!

I love Hettie's Patch, it is the prettiest quilt shop I've been in, and I've been in a few!!!!!!
I'm so glad I was able to go there with Shay (and spend lots of money).

I wish I could stop by and see this shop, everyone says it is so wonderful. Alas, it is a bit far away for me. The photos are lovely though.
