Two words: Lismore and Japan.
I have both to thank for all the awesome fabrics and prints that are currently in my possession.
A recent trip to Lismore saw me scavenging through all the local op shops – they always have the best finds; visiting the local knick knack shops – special mention to Judy Mason from Pulling Threads in South Lismore who has the most spectacular collection of unusual and interesting fabrics; and raiding my mum’s cupboards… thanks mum!
So that explains Lismore, but what about Japan?
Wish I could say that I had just ducked over there for a holiday, but sadly no. Instead I have a generous friend whose folks recently came for a visit and brought with them a collection of Japanese cottons with traditional prints… thank you Erica’s parents!
I am eager to get in and make some magic happen with these fabrics…just need the little guy to permit me
Keep your eyes on the website. I am hoping to have a few designs up within the week, and if any of you are particularly taken by any of the fabrics shown, please drop me a line – I’d love to create a personalised piece just for you (most personalised pieces cost between $20 – $30).
