Well it has been a week today since the Stitches & Craft Show finished and it has taken me this long to catch my breath! I was very pleased at how our stand came together and here are the pics and some thank yous of course.

Firstly thanks to all our online customers who dropped by and said hello. It was so good to put faces to the names. It was also great to chat to the extremely talented crafting community and designers in the Incubator who are a lovely bunch of really down to earth people.

A HUGE thanks to Tara the extremely talented designer who designed those beautiful banners you can see. Tara, you did an amazing job which far exceeded what I had imagined! Anyone requiring graphic design should definately take a look over here.

Shannon, what can I say you have been an awesome friend to me, always make me smile and your textiles are ACE! Thanks for all your help leading up to and during the show and particularly for putting up with me in my deliriously tired state. Love, Love, Love the new design!

Customers could not get enough of Shannon's fabulous hand screen printed textiles and she even received a couple of requests for her autograph on her fab drawings!

A big thanks to both Amy (above) and Sarah (no pic I am afraid) who did a fantastic job over the 5 days. You guys have kind of saved my life of late and I much appreciate your efforts.

Shannon's badges ran out the door and Kate from 'Please Eloise' made some fantastic hair accessories and buttons which were also very popular.

Thanks to Beth & Jeff for doing a GRAND job minding the girls and to Dave you are amazing and my rock.

Well done to Living Creatively for pulling off a very cool 'new look' show and we look forward to next year!

Stay tuned over the coming weeks as we do our best to upload many new fabrics and patterns into the store.

Kelani is off to the Show!

Come and visit us at Stand No.70 at the 'new look' Stitches & Craft Show Melbourne. We were very excited several months ago to be invited to participate by Living Creatively the fabulous hosts of this hip and happening show and can't wait to meet in person many of our customers and the fabulous craft blogging community. This year the show is part of the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival so their will be loads of stylish fashion going on as well as many craft market stalls on the outside to visit.

Shannon Lamden or Aunty Cookie as we all know and love her will also be selling her amazing fabrics and wares as part of our stand so be sure to pop by and say hello to us both.

Take a look over here from Tuesday, to print a 10% off discount voucher for purchases from Kelani Fabric at the show.

Between 11-15th March some fabrics will be marked out of stock on our site, as they will be with us at the show. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to our interstate and overseas customers but new and exciting fabric ranges will be available in our store at the conclusion to the show.

Please note: All orders placed between 11th - 15th March will be mailed on the 17th March.

Creative Customer Feb Competition Winners

Congratulations Anna and Renee for winning our Creative Customer competition for February.

Anna is an inspiration to others wishing to try their hand at bag making with her very first bag using the Grand Revival Flea Market bag pattern using Echino fabric and lined with Tula Pinks ladybugs from the Flutterby fabric collection. Anna found the pattern to be "easy to follow and not too tricky." Well Done Anna!

Renee designed and made this beautiful, apron. Her use of crochet lacework and choice of fabrics make this a particularly stunning and individual piece. Well Done Renee!

Thankyou to all customers who contributed to our gallery and inspired others for the month of Feb!
