One Half of The Bothered Owl has been Down Under since the beginning of August. That would be the Alex half.
While here in Brisbane, I have checked out fabric shops to see what is available. Who knew that Brisbane has so many quilting shops? And today I visited 3, plus the mainstream fabric/haberdashery/stuff shop Spotlight. And here is the haul:
Funky Fabrix at Mitchelton, north Brisbane.
And my purchases:
Then it was on to Spotlight.
And then to Patches in Indooroopilly. Amazing range of fabric including lots of novelty fabrics.
And the final stop for the day was The Quilters Store in Salisbury. An amazing barn with hundreds and hundreds of different fabrics.
So there you have it. Brisbane has a lovely selection of quilting shops to choose from. I had a great day finding them all and handing over my cash to them!
These fabrics will be turned into items for our upcoming fibre events (The I Knit Weekender, Fibre Flurry) and other crafty markets. If you happen to fall in love with any of these fabrics, and would like us to make you something, let us know!
