Pop Up opens with a BANG!

We opened our new Pop Up Shop on Saturday  at 9/100 Lower Paper Mill Rd in Fyansford, Geelong!

 We are sharing this great old bluestone space with Jen Hyland of "A Piece Of Cloth." Jen sources vintage quilts and fabrics and has a depth of knowledge in how best to use these for current projects.

It was so good to see the lovely ladies of GeeTAG, the Geelong Textile Arts Group, as our first customers. Thanks for coming and making us feel so welcome in this part of the world!

Lots of luscious textile/fibre goodies, especially Sari Remnants, mixed thread packs, gorgeous baubles, silk, mohair and wool top and lovely hand dyed Lara Downs yarns have gone to new homes!

 We will be here for about a month so hope to see lots more locals and we even hear some Melbournians are planning a visit to us and all that the lovely city of Geelong now has to offer. TheWaterfront has been developed beautifully and has great eating places along with easy walking distance to the National Wool Museum.
We will have lots of discounts on yarn ready for customers next week!

Opening hours -  Saturdays and Sundays from 10-4pm.

Family Wedding!

Just indulge me a little, while I rave about the much awaited family wedding of our only son, before I get to Precious Purl stuff!
The Gods shone on us with an absolutely beautiful day and as the ceremony was to be on the beach - we were so lucky! The bride was gorgeous, groom so handsome, all attendants were sooo colourful, everything they had planned was sensational and thoroughly enjoyed by all guests. Our hearts were full to overflowing!

 That's me in the blue, thought I would blend in with the Sea! I was so pleased I had gone for the flats on the sand, so much more comfortable than that sinking sensation my friends were finding! The Bride and Bridesmaids ditched their shoes and went barefooted!
Only a Mother would notice, but just as the bride arrived, I realised my son had his phone and keys in his pockets!! Why?? He was not driving, or ringing anyone, they were all there!! It ruined the line of his pants! but as I said, too late to grab them from him!
Everything else was perfection!
