Hooray - we have parking spaces again !!!
After putting up with the inconvenience of building gear including sheds, cranes, tradies' vehicles, concrete bollards blocking off even more parking spaces and blocked footpaths since June , we are now back to normal and therefore should be able to accommodate your car with a parking space not too far from the front of my shop. .

I have a new rack which hopefully displays my range of patterns more clearly for you.
Some of my Li'l Bloke's pattern range include
quilts, bags, cushions, mystery quilts and Boms.
My doll and gollie patterns are not shown in this rack.
Of course I have patterns by many other Australian and overseas designers.

I've been madly tagging fabrics with the special price tags, but more to be done tomorrow.
All these extra reductions will be ready for you tomorrow and over the coming couple of weeks.
I want to sell enough fabrics to enable me to remove all the fabrics from the kitchen to make a special area there.
More news on that later !!!

It's taking too long and too many pins to tag all the fabrics I am reducing so some bolts don't have the tag, just the coloured dot on top of each bolt e.g. 90% of the fabric shown are pink 'dotted'
