A Visitor from Down Under


This is Cat (Catherine) Magraith (known online as hardhatcat) and she's from Adelaide, South Australia. She's a quilter and paper pieced designer in addition to her being a civil engineer. She was here to visit Jennifer (our paper piecing teacher and friend) and have an American quilting experience. We were so happy to get to know her at Honey Bee! She and Jennifer also hit the Austin & Chisholm Trail guilds, visited Jennifer's bee and shopped at numerous local craft and quilt stores. Cat's free patterns can be found on the Guest Designer page of www.sewhooked.org and she has patterns for sale on etsy. She flew back home today with memories, fabric and yarn (she is also WONDERFUL knitter), leaving behind old and new friends who are trying to figure out how we can get to Australia!

Thank you for making Cat feel so very welcome while visiting the store. We both had a blast coming in to visit and plunder the Honey Bee bolts!

Thanks. I had a lovely time in Austin and enjoyed my numerous visits to Honey Bee Quilt Store.
I now have a lovely selection of fabrics that I would have had a lot of difficulty finding back home. Now all i need to do is get quilting!
