Craft & Sewing Show Highlights

Yesterday I had a great visit to the Mebourne Craft and Sewing show at Caulfield Racecourse. My parents in law came for a visit and babysat the girls, so I had a kid free morning - yay!


The show was incredibly busy and all the exhibitors had their work cut out keeping up with everyone shopping up a storm! I thought I'd share with you a few great things that caught my eye.



This burger looks pretty yummy huh? Love the details - the oozy cheese, the fries on the side. It is actually a cake! How awesome is it? This amongst some other gorgeous designs was displayed by the Cake Decorators Association of Victoria.

I enjoyed browsing the fat quarter baskets of Sew Materialistic:


She had a really beautiful range of fabrics including laminated cottons and some great patterns.
There was some beautiful quilts on display but these ones really caught my eye:


The Owl Parliament quilt was my favourite of the day, I love the black, red and white colour scheme and the entire design is just lovely. They are designed by Heather Buck from The Bay Window, where you can buy the pattern or the entire quilt kit. I also loved the Fishy Fishy quilt - sorry for the odd photo angle but I was trying to get as much detail of the quilt into the picture.


I had a great morning at the show so if you are free this weekend you should definitely check it out. I actually found it to be a good chance to pick up some of those little bits and pieces you forget about when you shop at your regular craft store - you should see the new fancy seam ripper I bought!!

You will find all the details on the show's website. Hope all you Melbournians have a great Cup Weekend!

  1. Just as well I missed the show, or I know I would have bought the single bed version of the Fishy Fish quilt. Your photo actually shows more detail than the one on their website.
