My Patch Fabrics Reopening!

As you may know I work a few days a week at an awesome shop in Milton in NSW, My Patch Fabrics. We have been open for just over a year in a gorgeous little shop in the main street. Well unfortunately we ran out of room and had so many ideas that we had to expand and move to a bigger shop. So today was our Grand reopening! This is our new home!
 Valerie Gautier is the owner of the shop and the best boss on the planet! Here she is just before we opened this morning putting the finishing touches together.
 One of the most exciting things about our move is that we are now selling sewing machines! Not just any machines, but my favourite machines ever, Husqvarna Vikings!
This is Lindsey the lovely Husqvarna Viking Rep, She taught us sooo much today! There is a new couching foot available for the Husqvarna Saphire Series machines and OMG I had an absolute ball with it!! I'll definately be playing a lot more with that one :)
 This is my favourite part of the shop, this bookshelf has all my favourite books (have I ever told you I'm a bookholic)
 And this stand has the most adorable vintage Bias tapes, buttons and lots more cute habby essentials.
 Of course the Softies shelf, I made all but 1 of these little cuties.
 Just one of our shelves of patterns, these shelves are mainly our favourite clothing designers Amy Butler and Make It Perfect.
 How good do these fabrics look! Total eye candy :)
 This is our entrance way. Our shop is a heritage listed house and used to be an art gallery. This makes our quilts look amazing hanging on the walls! They are lit up like art works, the way it should be!
 We have some amazing specials on our new range of Husqvarna Viking Machines, they are still available for a month, so send your hubby our way and we'll set you up for Mothers Day :)
 This is our back room which is still a little disorganised (we are waiting on new shelving, but check out the fireplace! There's another one in our classroom. Aren't they gorgeous!
I hope you've enjoyed a little tour of my second home. You can visit our online shop too if you can't make it in person, just click here
