~ Like a Bolt ~

I always get excited when a new shipment of fabrics arrive in the store. I have been so busy touching and feeling them I have lost track of where I am at today. My favourite has to be the oilcloth prints in the first photo. Great for making tablecloths, aprons and all kinds of things! I made my first Christmas tablecloth this week. I am so excited that it turned out well.
you can buy a select range of our fabrics online here


  1. Beautiful patterns, and I love them!
    In Croatia, unfortunately, has little choice so we are forced to order from other countries. Thank you for your suggestion.
    I love and have long been following your great blog even though sometimes lead to fever do not comment. I shall make sure that I am more regular.
    Best regards and a kiss, Zondra Art

  2. I love my oilcloth tablecloth :) These fabrics look lovely!

  3. Lovely fabrics all of them! Congrats on the successful tablecloth! Warm hugs to you! xxoo :)

  4. i agree the first photo of fabrics is my favorite too. but they are all so happy & fun!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous fabrics, Simone. I can see how you could forget what you were up to with these as a distraction!! I love my oilcloth that I purchased from you and am making some Chrissy present tote bags out of what was left after Bella's desk top was finished. I may have to pop over and have a look at some of those gorgeous floral prints! Happy Wednesday Simone. Hugs ~ Txx

  6. beautiful, I feel the same about my work room with all the gorgeous fabrics together

  7. I wish I could find such a fabulous fabric store around where I live, Simone! I love to touch the fabrics before I buy, but with those incredible patterns, I might just be convinced to buy them online! Thanks for sharing :) xo

  9. I had to go to the fabric store last week to get something and I just wandered around touching it all - totally get what you mean. The funny thing is, I can't sew but I love fabric and I imagine all the great things I could make with it.

  18. Hi Simone,
    Loved the Womens Weekly story.
    Made the issue even more special.
    I always keep the Christmas Mags
    for inspiration each year.
    My Mum loved it too.
    I am working out my finances for
    your beautiful materials.
    WOW I love them!
    Hope your weather today is as
    beautiful as in SA, Sun is shining,
    birds are happy;)
    Love Sue

  19. Hi Simone,
    Just received my dear Ceramic Wall

    It will be the perfect gift for
    a special lady! Thanks so much for
    sorcing some beautiful Australian
    Made giftables. So Great.
    Love Sue

  20. These fabrics are so beautiful! I'm moving to Brisbane soon, and doing up a little cottage on the South Side... so I'll be sure to stop by the shop, say hi, and check out these beautiful prints in person!
    I love your blog... It's so bright and cheerful... just what I want to look at as I wait out the winter weeks in Toronto waiting for my Australian visa to arrive!
