Workshops at the Stitches & Craft Show Melbourne 2009

We are so busy over here at Audrey & Maude headquarters as we are in full swing with preparations for the Melbourne Stitches & Craft Show starting March 11 - 15.

As well as a Stand (225) and some new patterns to show you, we are also conducting two 'hands on' Workshops.

We thought we might give you a little peak into what we have planned for the Workshops.

Simple Tote Bag

In our first Workshop we will be teaching you how to make this very simple reversible tote bag. So, if you have ever wanted to know the secret to making simple tote bags - now is the time to learn. Just think, birthday presents, xmas presents, teacher presents! Your friends and family will be so impressed. You will leave, after finishing our Workshop, with a completed tote bag which is absolutely gorgeous.

Our class is for the absolute beginner or for anyone who really wants to learn the secrets of making this gorgeous tote bag. All you need to do is bring yourself! We will supply the rest.

We have made up kits with the most delicious fabrics from Amitie and there are four different colourways to choose from. The hardest part of this class will be choosing which kit!!!

Times for the Simple Tote Bag Workshop are 9.30 - 11.00 am on Wednesday and Thursday and at 3.30pm - 5.00pm on Friday. The cost per class (including kit) is $27.00. We will let you know how to book for these in our next update.


We are also very excited about doing a Children's Sewing Workshop. These classes have proved extremely popular at Amitie this past year. In this fun and easy workshop we will teach the children how to make a beautiful appliqued canvas picture to take home. There will be four different scenes to choose from in the yummiest of colours and fabrics.

These workshops will be run on Saturday and Sunday at 12.00 - 1.30pm and the cost will be $17.00 per class (all materials supplied). Details on how to book for these workshops will be posted very soon.

So what are you waiting for! Melbourne Stitches & Craft Show starting March 11 - 15 - a new venue and heaps of new exciting things to see and do! And make sure you pop by our stand - we'd love to see you!
