The demise of the patchwork shop.
I have been meaning to do this post for a while but there has been so much happening here. Late last year I was deeply saddened when my favourite patchwork shop A stitch in Time Fullarton closed down its walk in store and went online. Now my less frequented but still liked The Patchwork Apple is closing down too. Taking with them any chance of my ever working in a Quilt shop fantasy. (I have always wanted to work amongst although those colours and quiltiness like a sugar free candy shop). South Australia is about to face a Quilt shop shortage forcing us to all spend our money online and make AUstralia Post smile. Only problem is where we will go to stitch and chat and share and learn. Sigh
