Urban Stitches Melbourne

Last weekend I went with 2 of my lovely friends down to Urban Stitches in Melbourne.  It was at the Novatel in Glen Waverley - great location and easy to find.  Melanie Dekker of "Melly & Me", Leanne Beasley of "Leannes House" and Rosalie Quinlan of  "Rosalie Quinlan Designs" were the three designers there.  They all had their beautiful samples & quilts on display which were just amazing.  I don't know how these ladies find the time to do all this amazing work!  We also received goodie bags filled with three fully kitted patterns - one from each designer, plus all the threads, some fabrics, needles and scissors.   We had a lovely day stitching, shopping (Under the Mulberry Tree had a shop setup) and indulging in a beautiful lunch and just relaxing and taking some time out for ourselves. 
Just some of the samles and quilts on display

I managed to start stitching Melly's project which is a beautiful bag with embroidery on the front called 'Birds of a Feather'.  Thanks girls for a lovely day out stitching!

Happy Sewing!


  1. Ahhhh Jody - I have to say a big thank you to you and Jenelle too - I had the best day. LOL also thanks for putting up the photo of Jenelle and I - it's actually not a bad photo. I started madly stitching "Birds of a Feather" on Thursday for a friends daughter's birthday next weekend - I'm hoping to have it finished in time (nothing like a last minute thing huh!!)

    1. I must say I had a fabulous day out with the two of you. Thank you so much for the invitation, and lets hope we can do it all again next year...

    2. oh yes definitely - we should do it again next year if we can.
