Last Friday I had a great day as a special guest at the Brother Australia stand at the Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair.
It felt pretty weird seeing myself on posters around the stand! Of course Jane and I had to take a few selfie snaps in front of one!

My demo project for the day was a little hexie mini quilt / mug rug. The hexies certainly were the star of the show – so many people wanted to stop and talk about what I was doing. Many commented that they’d never seen hexies sewn in this way. I confess it’s not my original idea – I found pictures on pinterest and discovered that Modern Handcraft has made this technique a signature style and you can find her tutorial here.
How are you spending this weekend? We’re at the #CraftandQuiltFair in Melbourne at stand F07 so come and say hi! We even had the pleasure of having the very lovely @sewdeliciousros join us today ☺️ Don’t forget that we have daily classes running where you can create a beautiful Creative Techniques Block using our Innov-is 410 #sewing & #quilting machine. You can also check out the quilts from last year’s #Brother International #Quilting Contest for #inspiration #BrotherCreates #BrotherInspires
I spent a lot of the day chatting to people at the stand, meeting readers (a HUGE thank you to those of you who came and said hello – so lovely to meet you all!) and talking about the Brother machines, including the one I have, the NV1800Q. I was amazed by some of the high level quilting machines – some of them seemed so space age I suspect they could probably also clean the house and cook the dinner!
When wandering around the show a few people asked “Are you that girl from Sew Delicious? Are you Ros?” I’ve never been recognised before but I guess a Craft & Quilt Fair is where it would happen! Now I totally get what it must be like to be Kim Kardashian. 😉
I must get in touch with the people at Brother and ask for one of those posters – my Nan would get a real kick out of seeing it!
