…was held this weekend! Of course we went! In fact we were practically the first in line…I wish I could tell you that we were anxious to see the gorgeous quilts on display…but you know me…it was all about the VENDORS!
We were interested in one vendor in particular…The THREADED NEEDLE! We made a bee-line straight for Susan’s booth…I bet she was wondering what hit her!!
Susan comes all the from Gibsons…a ferry ride away…and brings her lovely wares with her~ beautiful Japanese yard dyed fabrics…wools and threads, purse clasps and toggles and buttons galore…oh AND all of the latest Japanese Quilters’ quilting books!!
Wouldn’t it be fun to take a sashiko stitchery class from her…
But it was the Japanese stitchery projects that caught my eye….
I can see a teacher loving this purse! Coming home after the LAST class of the year and changing out her purse!! Let those lazy days of Summer begin!
Susan has tons of purses made up and all the patterns to make them yourself!
Dang cute purses…
Don’t you LOVE this one!
Susan even had 3” yarn dyed hexies…40 per package for $11.95!! A steal!
And a huge table of yard dyed fabrics…in metre, half metre or FQ cuts! Be still my heart!
Linens, threads, toggles, buttons and clasps…oh and do-dads!
Loved this thread catcher bag…
…surrounded by bird houses!! Sweet!
BUT it was THIS quilt that stopped us in our tracks and made us get out our drooling bibs!! It was stunning!! My camera DOES NOT do it justice!
Just LOOK at it…
The pattern can be found in this Yoko Saito’s book, “Strolling Along Paths of Green”!
And we noticed more green hues added to Susan’s yarn dyed fabrics! Hmmm…wonder why?:)
Love the way Susan has added the special effects!
Yup…we were liking this quilt…a lot!!
I hope you enjoyed A Threaded Needle as much as we did…and if you did, then check out her ON-LINE shop! Her prices are GREAT…and she has EVERYTHING that you will need to make any of these projects…and then some!! Plus this gal has all the latest Yoko Saito books!! And check out THOSE hexies!! You won’t be sorry…
There’s more to come tomorrow on the Victoria Quilt Show…we may even get around to the QUILTS! :O)
Have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Stitching!~P
