Here are a couple of photos from our fun ‘Textile Tour’ to Melbourne.

There are so many places we could have/should have gone but there is only so much that can fit into one day.

We began with a fun train trip from Geelong aboard the 8.16am. We all managed to find each other despite getting on at three different stations (great things those SMS’s).

After a tram trip up Collins Street it was a short stroll across through Manchester Lane to the historic Nicholas Building.

There we shopped in bliss at Maria George Beads, Buttonmania (first day of their sale) and l‘uccello, who opened especially for us. Unfortunately the owner of Kimono House was away in Japan.

Next stop was coffee in Swanston St before we headed up Flinders Lane to Tessuti and Craft Vic. Many gorgeous fabrics in Tessuti were purchased before we headed along Spring St to Collins St for the 112 Tram to Brunswick St, Fitzroy. The shopping bags became much heavier after visiting The Fabric Store.

Next stop was lunch at Little Creatures where the Cider was sparkling and refreshing and the food was delicious.

Just a short trek up Brunswick St was Beautiful Silks, where Marion and friends looked after us beautifully. Our last port of call was Precious Purl (Lara Downs retail outlet) for some gorgeous fibres.

Thank you to all the retailers who gave us great service on a fantastic day out.

Perhaps it could become an annual event!!
