Cabramatta with the Sydney Spoolettes

By Susan | Comments: 2 | March 17, 2014


Last Sunday was yet another wonderful day out at a Sydney Spoolettes! This time we decided to pop out to Cabramatta for some fabric shopping and food and I have to say, the food, fabric and company were all fabulous.

Once again I was somewhat under the weather having managed to get a virus onto of what I’ve already got. So I’m using that as to an excuse as to why I forgot to take more photos. I had my camera with me but just forgot to actually use it much.

Cabramatta can sometimes be mysterious when it comes to fabrics. I’ve been out before and not found a thing to buy or I go and find I really want to buy everything. Despite being on a self imposed stash bust I managed to buy yet more fabric yesterday.

I had made a list of things that were wanted or needed that I didn’t have in the stash earlier in the week so I would be more focused. Pretty much everything I got was on that list. I snuck in one extra piece that wasn’t on the list but seeing how 2 pieces are destined to make things for The Englishman I figured one extra for me would be ok?

The Sydney Spoolettes now have a facebook group, so if you are interested in coming to the next meet up you can find the details there.

    Thanks for being our fabric tour guide! I’m bummed I was feeling so out of it as I missed out on so many good fabric buying opportunities. Oh well…we’ll just need to go back…SOON!

      I hope you are feeling better?

      Am sure it was the first of many many trips the Spoolettes will make to Cabramatta. Next time I want to do some food shopping while I am there. Stock up on all those amazing ingredients that are hard to find elsewhere.
