Around the Balmain Store

Over the past month, the first classes at C&I Balmain have started,  creating such a buzz of excitement and experimentation.  Sheena started off the classes with "Branching Out", teaching the girls all about curved piecing and placement.

This is Ingrid's piecing.  Can't wait to see it finished!

Sarah Fielke's Friday Girls are going in all different, exciting directions.  It will be great to watch each of the ladies projects unfold as we pass through the weeks.  Above is the start of Margaret's new project

 Fiona's lace workshop was wonderful.  So nice to watch the girls grasp and love the new technique that they've learnt.

Newly made in store is this beautiful little dress in Liberty and Eco Baby yarn, whipped up by Donna. Straight from the mouth of a babe I know - "divined"!

Soon to come, some shots of the crochet girls, who have embraced their hooks and are all crocheting up storms and enjoying every moment of it and of each others company too!  That's what it's all about.


  1. Oh my gosh! That is the sweetest little dress! Is there a pattern for the knitted top? I'm assuming it's knitted and not crocheted, am I right? (I could so easily be wrong!)

  2. I found this through pinterest - I'd be interested in purchasing a pattern as well.
