Shop News

It is so fabulous to have our shop open to walk-in customers again!! After 7-1/2 long months, here in Melbourne we all feel optimistic at last that a big part of our lockdown has ended and we can get out and about a bit more, albeit a little cautiously. And it’s not just about retail therapy, but FABRIC THERAPY!
It has been wonderful to see so many of you in person again these past few days, and we look forward to seeing many more of you in the near future. Our shop has lots of new samples on display, along with some new fabrics, threads and patterns to inspire you. 
Plus we have tables packed with fabulous SALE PACKS to greet you when you arrive, and we are constantly adding new heavily reduced FABRIC PACKS and SCRAP PACKS and KITS. So every visit you are likely to find new bags full of treasures!
Lots of new things in store also, so read on for details!
