It's time to move...

If you haven't already seen it on the Amitie blog...

Yes we're packing up the Centre Road shop and we're off to to a whole new shop with a whole new look. I can't tell you much about the new shop as we want an element of surprise for your first visit to it but they do say a picture tells 1000 words, right? So here's a little photo clue to get those minds boggling.

What does it mean? You'll have to pay us a visit to the new shop and see! But we have to get to the new shop first...
The lovely Boss Lady has decided to continue the $16.50 per meter madness until we move (in store only, excludes Liberty of London, Linen and Organic Cottons). How we see it is the more stuff we can sell before we move the less heavy lifting... following?
So we've also put some stock out at 50% OFF: selected dress making fabrics, minkee, selected patterns, selected threads and mini irons.

I also assume as we start packing up some other things might be added to the list of super special discounts so keep your eyes peeled on the blogs for more amazing bargains!

Where are we off to?!

When will we be there?!
Our last day at 281 Centre Road Bentleigh will be the 17th of September.
We will be closed 18th-20th of September.
The 21st will be the grand re-opening of Amitie in our beautiful new building so pop in and pay us a visit (I hear there will be champagne).

And you thought I complained about packing for the show... I will try and keep the whinging to a minimum over the next 21 days!

Love getting new fabrics. Makes my mind start ticking with what projects I can start.
I've promised myself no new projects until I finish a few (don't hold your breath. I move at snail pace) but that doesn't mean I can't plan for the future... right?

Loving the beautiful blue French road map... with a little brown and mustard yellow, yum yum yum!

A girlfriend of mine is having a baby so these cute fabrics caught my eye.

I already have a cot quilt for her but maybe these stretched over some canvas' as a gift at the baby shower!

What have you got stashed away?

Around the shop...

Happy Friday

Maybe it is this simple...

Friends that paper piece together...

I was pretty happy when my best friend Kath told me she wanted to start a quilt.
"I think I want to try it with papers, like you do?" - my eyes must have lit up when she said this!

Kath was in the store on Tuesday picking fabrics and went home to get started.
She popped in again today to show us what she'd done and to say I am impressed would be an understatement!

This was the pattern she picked - huge transformation when it's done in Kath's bright and funky colour palette!.

Can't wait to see it finished - she's aiming for it to be queen sized!
