Weekend at Precious Time Fabric and Quilts

Weekend at Precious Time Fabric and Quilts - Andrie Designs

Hi bag makers and welcome to the blog! Today I have a post jam packed FULL of eye candy goodness in the form of Gather Me Up Clutches and Mini Shades Pouches so reader beware! You will find nothing but inspiration down below!

Over the weekend I spent some time at the AH-mazing quilt store that is Precious Time Fabric and Quilts in Toowoomba, Queensland (Australia), and taught classes for both the Gather Me Up Clutch and the Mini Shades Pouch patterns. All the class participants, myself, and the lovely store owners, had a wonderful weekend, with many laughs along the way.

Naturally there were times of ‘reverse sewing’ (unpicking), which I think everyone had to do at some point, but as you’ll no doubt agree, it happens to the best of us and is just part of the learning process. Thankfully at times, I was able to catch some errors before they happened, so the students only had to do some ‘reverse pinning’ rather than reverse stitching, which is a LOT easier haha!

The Precious Time Fabric and Quilts store is absolutely amazing and if you happen to head to Toowoomba at any point, you simply must pop in and say hi to Patrina and her staff! They are extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and have a fantastic selection of not only quilting cottons, but also linen, cork, bag hardware and so many other goodies there’s too many to list!

I know I definitely grabbed a few goodies while there (the struggle was real to choose on a few things and not the whole shop!!), and can’t wait to make some treasures for them in preparation for my trip to Houston later in the year!
