Had a list of things I wanted to purchase however could not find lots of the things that I was after...will have to make some Internet purchases soon...like there was no stand with Aurifil thread!
As always lots to see and try out. I specifically spent some time at the sit down midarm machines...unfortunately here in South Australia there are currently only two available...the Handiquilter Sweet 16 and the new Bernina Q20 (I think that is the name). Both stitched fantastically well, of course and all I can say is...I want one! It is actually not so much the space around the side of the machine that I am after, but more the height of the machine. When freemotion-quilting on the DMS, I do sort of hunch over and look on the side to see where I am going. With the set up of the midarms there is visually very little distraction and the height allows you to see clearly where you going and where you are coming from. Very nice indeed! Will have to think some more on this...
Anyway, here are my purchases for the day...
I am thinking concentric circles or maybe clamshells...you cannot see it properly in this photo but the beige top part has the same faint cranes as in the black background...oh, the fun...this will be great!
Very excited about this.
Also bought a range of blue fabrics (and some mustard tones just because)
