The Amitie Workspace

The beating heart of the Amitie shop is our incredible workspace.  When we have a workshop on or a group visiting for a Sit and Sew it really adds
a terrific buzz to the store. We are only just starting to understand what it can bring to this amazing place.

Sit and Sew

***Currently on hold due to COVID-19***.

The Amitie Sit and Sew runs every Wednesday 10.30am - 2.30pm
This is a wonderful opportunity to use our work area and meet some like minded people.  Set up for the day and enjoy our cafe's many delights. 
Call the store on 03 4241 2109 to book your place. 

For group bookings of greater than 12 you can secure the space exclusively.  The workspace area seats up to 32 so why not consider a trip to Torquay when your craft group next meets?

The use of the space is free of charge, please email enquires to


A weekend away dedicated to crafting is a rare indulgence these days.  We can help design one for your group that will be remembered long after your visit.

We can offer a range of specially designed workshops, organise catering throughout the day and in some cases into the evening. Or just use the workspace as your place to sew for the weekend. 

Speak to us about our preferred list of accommodation and what other delights Torquay has to offer.

Bus Trips

Torquay is a convenient 1 and half hours from Melbourne and a perfect destination for a day trip.  

We can work with you to suit the needs of your group whether this be organising Morning Tea to be served as soon as you arrive or a light lunch before you peruse the aisles of gorgeous fabrics and notions.  Consider product or technique demonstrations or a talk from our ever inspiring owner, Jen Kingwell.
