"Nice" people



Today we'd like make a little Miss Woolly tribute to "nice" people.

Top of the pops for niceness is the lovely man at Universal Sewing Machines, in South Melbourne. What a delight it was for us to meet John on Friday. He come complete with lab coat, the sweet smell of sewing machine oil and a room stacked to the ceiling with sewing machines all waiting on his restorative touch. Even though my sewing machine is quite old he did make mention that 'she does a nice stitch.'
If ever you need a repair job on your sewing machine, John is your man. You'll find him in the back lane of Emerald Hill Place. Look for the sign above.

# 2 on the Miss Woolly tribute to "nice" people...is Pip at Meet Me at Mikes. Pop on in and say hello.....they now also stock the full range of Miss Woolly Needlepoint Kits and Button Sets. You can find them at 106 Bridge Road, Richmond.

Something else I did spy on may way down Little Collins Street today was a very "nice" window display in e.g.etal showcasing the amazing work of Fiona Roberts. Her delicate pieces are only in the window for one more week...so be quick. When I called this afternoon to enquire about them, they'd already sold one of the peices.
aaaaaaaarrrrrrrghhhhhhh, why was I in such a hurry?
