Deb Williams specifically remembers May 7, 2008 – the day she started quilting.
Since this day, Deb has been a self-confessed quilting addict.
It has become a passion, and Deb claims to have met so many wonderful people because of it.
Born and bred on Siam Station, a property her parents managed in the Gawler Ranges north of Port Augusta, Deb is a self-professed 'station girl'.
The Williams' are currently leasing Woolgangi Station, and running their own stock.
In September 2016, Deb, together with her husband of 34 years Paul, purchased two adjoining cottages (circa 1905), on Taylor Street in Burra, with a clear vision in mind.
Deb envisaged combining her passion for quilting, and her dream of owning and running a bed and breakfast.
As a result, Burra's own 'Sew Delightful Quilting Retreat' was born.
The two bedroom cottages are self-contained, and each cottage sleeps four people (two single beds in each bedroom).
The larger cottage of the two incorporates a sizeable area for sewing.
There are tables, as well as ironing and cutting stations, set up, and ready to go.
Linen is supplied, along with breakfast for each day of your stay.
Each guest will find a gift at the end of their bed.
A little something from Deb, to say thank you for staying at the retreat.
Sew Delightful Quilting Retreat will officially open in late October.
Guests will need to bring their own machines, however, there will be an ironing station (with iron supplied), and cutting station (with cutting mat supplied).
Deb plans to offer classes to guests in the future.
At $50 per person per night, the rate is affordable for both individuals and groups looking for a weekend away, or a longer stay.
Supplies can be sourced locally, with specialty shops located in Eudunda (Country Fabrics ‘N’ Things), and Charlene’s in Jamestown.
