    how great that you met up with each other!
    I was just wondering what your favourite material store is as I am always on the lookout for new places to stock up at...
    text traders midland just love thier 1 & 2 dollar tables and they have craft material on at $4.00 mtr at the moment, what suburb do you live in
    I live in Casuarina (near kwinana or rockingham) I havent been to a textile traders for a while so might check them out. I usually shop at Spotlight but would like to go to Midland as have seen a big quilting shop advertised but just never seem to have the time. Nice to talk to someone local!!

    It was lovely to meet "Litacats" yesterday...I had been reading the post about "have you met anyone from the board" and thought "Yeah, right, that's never going to happen" and amazingly it did!

    Blahel, Textile Traders in Midland is one of the friendliest stores...staff are really lively and they have some pretty good bargains most of the time. Spotlight in Cannington is my next favourite, they seem to have a slightly more interesting range than some other stores. I haven't yet checked out the quilting store (I know the one you mean), but hope to in the next week or so, will let you know if it's worth the petrol money!

    I went into the quilting store yesterday wow did they have some stuff, thay had finished quilts everwhere with the kits to buy to make your own, and quilting machines and a quilting table It brings the song to mind IF I WERE A RICH MAN, Oh I could have had some fun there I can tell you, but most of it was out of my price range, I will just have to save my pennies, I almost drooled over the machines infact when the sales person came up and asked me what I was after I did say I was just drooling over everthing. tightly packed but well laid out, everthing you could ever want under 1 roof. they do have layby if you want it and also teach different classes,

    I met a fellow quilting board member at Quilting by the Lake where I go every summer for learning, sharing and renewal. How cool, there she was in the same class with me. We found we had a lot in common and enjoyed sewing together for three days.

    Hi Earthwalker...yes let me know what the shop is like and thanks for the info re textile traders in Midland. I do go to spotlight in Cannington and also find that the Spotlight in Rockingham is pretty good too. Often they will have a lot of marked down fabrics where the Cannington one doesnt. Spotlight in Innaloo while a lovely store hasnt had much on clearance but I love IKEA so usually make a day of it!

    Hi Litacats, is this the quilting shop in Midland you are talking about? I am looking forward to seeing that store then as it sounds like it will be worth the trip especially with sewing machines in there as well..i just love the new Janome Horizon..but will be waiting a while to get it until it comes down in price...

    It seems that our quilting community gets smaller all the time.

    I have met several quilting friends from differnt sites, and it is always fun. I have a very special friend in Idaho that I met online, then got together with on a vacation trip. It really is fun, and makes it so much more personal
