Winter Tempters to get you Stitching

We are currently deep in preparation for the Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair. Held from Wednesday 12th July to Saturday 15th July from 10am to 4pm each day at Melbourne Exhibition Centre, South Wharf, you'll find us at stand A13. PLEASE NOTE the change in days for this years show - it runs from Wednesday to Saturday (not open Sunday!)
Like to order something for us to bring to the show for you to collect at our stand? Just place an order on the website, select
"Pick up in store" and leave a note in the comments letting us know you'd like to collect at the show, and which day we can expect to see you. Or, of course just give us a call here at the shop.
We won't be attending this year's Sydney Show in June/July, but you'll find us at Quilt NSW/Craft Alive at Rosehill in September.
