With much fanfare, style queens and celebrities Trinny & Susannah visited Perth today!

Arcadia West Fashion Agency represents their fantastic Magic Knickers range here in WA, so this was an event not to be missed.
Here is Susannah from back stage. The stars were on & off-stage throughout the show to instruct an army of stylists charged with making over audience members picked at random.

In a brief post-show chat, Susannah said it gave her "goosebumps" to know that the Magic Knickers range was helping so many women here in WA, and was so pleased women here had access to such a great product.

Can you say { Exciting } ????

Meet Heather

When I first starting sewing many eons ago I made quilts. So, I have first hand knowledge of the difficulty it is to build a quilt from beginning to end, especially if the concept of the quilt is your own design rather than a pattern from a book . When I see others who sew quilts I have mad love for them.

To make a quilt it takes precision, perseverance and at times tons of patience. If Heather is anything like I was (and I suspect she is) ripping apart a full quilt, due to an imperfection, and resewing it wouldn't surprise me. A big part of a quilts success is the fabric choices you'll make . To look at any of Heather's quilts you can see she has a great eye for fabrics.

I recently got to see one of her quilts in progress and I can say her thought process and the impact it was going to make was very important to her. The next time you decide to curl up with a book, grab a quilt from Heather of A La Mode Fabric, you won't be sorry!

Take a look at her store and her beautiful treasures!
