Quilter's heaven...

must look something like the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair held each June at the Darling Harbour Exhibition Centres. Fabric, fabric and more fabric everywhere you look plus everything else you could ever imagine needing for quilting. The other shows around Australasia are great too, but this one makes your head spin. The photo below shows less than a third of the stands, and doesn't show any of the huge quilt show.

Of course we always intend to take pictures of our stand (B20 - come and see us next year if you missed the show this time!) when we've just set it up and everything is perfectly placed and displayed. And inevitably we run around at 4.30 on the last day trying to get a few shots to record the week of craziness, with the last few customers who've rushed back to get that item they can't get out of their head.

The result? Signs are skewed, sold out items have been removed and new samples tacked up hurriedly, but the photos give you some idea of the colour and inspiration to be found at the Show. It's the largest in the Southern Hemisphere and I certainly found everything I was hunting for.

Here's Gai chatting away next to the fabulous SewEzi portable sewing table. It was a hit at the show!

And I couldn't leave Elwin out...
