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.

Sit & Sew

The Amitie Sit & Sew is back but like many things in 2022, it's looking a little different......
It will still be a wonderful opportunity to use our work area and meet some like-minded people however the size will be limited to facilitate social distancing (in accordance with Covid-Safe planning).
The price is $25 with morning tea (including tea or coffee) and lunch provided.
$30 on Saturdays.

Dates will be listed on our website - To book your place please click here 
*Please note we will not take bookings over the phone or in-store. You must book online**

To arrange a private Sit & Sew with a group of friends please email


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.
