If you went to Sew It Together in Melbourne last year, you might have been lucky enough to get to the studio of the divine Ms Nicole Mallalieu on the Friday night where we had an absolutely fantastic evening of amazing food (who made that chocolate peanut concoction? that was amazing!), refreshing beverages and a great tour of Nikki’s studio! (Oh my word…you should see her scrap bin..the treasures that you’d find in there!!!).
There were patterns galore:
And loads of samples:
Nicole Mallalieu is probably best known for fantastic bags and purses – both patterns and kits – and look at all these samples!
The great thing about Nicole Mallalieu patterns is that you learn some great techniques along the way, and you end up with a beautifully finished product.
If you need a bit of extra help and you live in, or visit, Melbourne, she runs lots of great classes and workshops. Wow. I just had another look at that list – I could do with a few of those workshops!!
Unfortunately, the lovely Ms Mallalieu herself can’t make it to SIT this year, and she will be missed! But in her place, she is sending a bunch of patterns and kits to giveaway as prizes at the Saturday Crafting Session.
Thanks so much, Nikki! We’d rather you were there in person, but it’s very sweet of you to send us some prizes! Thank you!! And let’s hope you can join us again next year!
