Lovely NEW Small Scale Japanese Fabric Arrivals

A selection of some of our NEW small-scale Japanese fabrics perfect for that 'little' project! I can see some lovely hair accessories, buttons, wee shoes, jewellery and bag linings made from a few of these.

Leave us a weee comment with what you would like to make using just one fat quarter of one of your favourites here and we will select eight responses and mail one fat quarter of their choice of the above Japanese fabrics to play with! If you are a mum like me you may just find a wee amount of time these school holidays to make something from it!

Hello Sydney!

It was a great first day at the Craft & Quilt Fair at the Sydney Exhibiton and Convention Centre in Darling Harbour today and we were delighted to meet so many of our NSW customers for the very first time. Thanks for dropping by and for your fantastic feedback regarding our stand. The photo above is an old show image as unfortunately I forgot my USB cable so cannot provide a current stand image. Our stand for this show is filled to the brim with NEW fabrics that have not yet even made it to our website and we have had some very happy customers and  are excited to meet many more over the remaining four show days. To our regular customers in other states, we look forward to uploading many more NEW fabrics to our store in the next couple of weeks after the show.

A BIG hello and thankyou to Janine back at the office who is doing a tremendous job servicing our regular customers online while we are away! Also we are really missing the wit and charm of Shannon who was unfortunately unable to travel with us to this show. George is a little sad without you!

Please stop by and visit us at Stand D17 as we would love to meet you!

Children's Bed Linen Inspiration

We have many customer enquiries regarding making childrens bed linen from our fabric collections. Tamika, one of our talented customers purchased Good Travel and has sewn this fantastic quilt cover for her son.

Many of our fabric widths for children's novelty fabrics have a 110-112cm width, however Tamika has shown perfectly here, how magnificently bed linen can come up when choosing something like a spot, stripe or solid and combining with a children's print. This not only looks effective but is often more cost effective as well. When deciding upon a suitable fabric for linen or curtains for that matter it is important to pay attention to the direction the design runs. Some designs may not be suitable for example if the design runs in only one direction from selvedge to selvedge. This information on the direction the design runs is often noted in our fabric descriptions.

Thankyou Tamika for the lovely inspiration! This along with many more customer handmade items will be displayed in our NEW gallery soon. Our gallery upgrade is taking a little longer than expected but should be available for complete viewing soon!
