Hi folks, Sunday’s coming and it’s a good day to shop for some beautiful fabric! We look forward to seeing you – the weather prediction is for sunshine!
Cashmere Blend Wool
OMG! we received a few bolts of the softest cashmere blend wool coating and we can’t wait to share it with you. Available in black and navy blue. The designer who donated this fabric specialized in men’s wear so, we also have some Italian Tropical weight Wool Suiting (155 cm wide) in navy with pale stripe, gray (flannel style) and black. These high-end imported fabrics are smooth and subtle to the touch yet firm enough for a suit jacket. Watch Instagram posts for pictures over the next few days.
Come and see what we have down the centre aisle in the Shop – 4 tables filled with natural woven fabrics, cottons, wool, linen, silk and rayon blends. A wide variety of textures, patterns and styles to choose from.
Teddy Bear Fur
Lovely donation from a lady who made teddy bears – a rack full of natural fiber bear fur and some synthetic pieces in a rainbow of colours.
