Stitching with Rosalie...

Most Australian stitchers, and many International ones as well, will know of Rosalie Quinlan, and her delightful designs. She is an incredibly talented designer, and also, a local to our area here, along with her sister Melanie Dekker (of Melly and Me,) and friend Leanne Beasley (of Leannes House.)

Rosalie Quinlan, and her gorgeous stitching.

I've always been a huge fan of the work of these talented ladies, and often admired their creativity. It's quite fun to work where I do, as regularly the three of them shop at our store. We tend to forget that they are rather famous in the sewing world, till a customer demands an autograph!

So my boss, Gail, treated all her staff to a (late!) Christmas break up - a stitching day exclusively with Rosalie Quinlan. Yep, we had her all to ourselves!

A busy table, and lots of talking!

Rosalie had bought along with her a gorgeous little stitched bag pattern for us all, and Gail had put together some fabric kits for the day. Of course, lollies and chocolate and scones were ever present as well, and a wonderful day was had by all.

As to actually finishing the project, well, lets just say - my stitching hasn't progressed much further, just yet!

 And for local girls, Leanne Beasley will be in store at Patchwork with Gail B, this saturday, the 3rd of March doing some demonstrating. Starting at 10am - I'll see you there!

How lucky are you to have all those wonderful ladies visiting your shop - though I must admit I oftern see Nikko Tervo in my LQs.
