For Kaffe heaven, you can't go past All Things Patchwork in Waimauku. Wow! I was delighted to find this fabulous shrine to Kaffe Fassett and found two lovely striped FQs with my name on them. I also got carried away by this quirky 100% organic cotton bicycle quilt kit using Avalon by www.birchfabrics.com. Owner, Cheryl, is lovely, very knowledgable and helpful. Definitely well worth a visit and an easy drive only 45 minutes north west of Auckland CBD.
My trip to Auckland could not be completed without calling into Cushlas Village Fabrics in Devonport. This is where I first started buying quilt fabric and it was like stepping back in time to walk through the doors again. I could hear Francie in the back, on the phone, and the shop was packed, as usual, with an extensive range of quilting supplies. A layer cake in Lumiere de Noel by French General for Moda caught my eye, as did some jumbo ric-rac. Hmmm...what to make, what to make!
