Sydney Bus Trip July 2011

On Saturday July 23 a  bus load of members headed down the highway for a day of fabric shopping and lots of laughs.

Our first stop was at Craft Depot, Pennant Hills. We were first through the door and shopped up a storm. It can be quite overwhelming with all that fabric. Decisions, Decisions... but we managed..

Next off to Material Obsession at Drummoyne. So colourful. There was much to choose from and tonnes of inspiation. The ladies here were lovely and very helpful.

We had lunch at Birkenhead Point. WOW!! I think a few of us will be back here to shop some more. They had fabulous factory outlet shops. The prices were great and it was all good quality.

Our next stop was a cute little shop Calico & Ivy in Balmain. It was packed with beautiful fabrics, lots of giftwares and gorgeous yarns for knitting and crochet. They were really welcoming and happy for us to be there.

Some intense faces there...

Buying up big. Way to go girls...

The last stop was Logan's Patchwork at Liechhardt. Even more fabric to choose from. It was hard to pass  on the discount fabrics. Ladies found the Asian fabrics they were looking for and others found that little something for their stash.

A great day was had by everyone. A huge thanks goes out to Wally for driving all the cackling ladies around the town.
Can't wait for the next one....
