Just a Quickie!

Just a quick hello to keep you all up to date. I am a very very bad blogger. I think it has now been 3 months since my last blog!

I try to find the time, but with a 3 year old and 3 teenagers, a new store, ebay and our website http://www.funkyfabrixonline/ - well you can see why the postings and few and far between!

We visited the Victorian Quilt show last month and not only did we have a lovely 2 days without kids in tow, we ordered some gorgeous fabric - well not just some, but a lot of gorgeous fabric. Look out for new Amy Butler, Alexander Henry, Robert Kaufman, Moda, Japanese prints, Books, Patterns, Free Spirit, and more!

Some of these should start arriving soon, with the majority arriving in Feb or March.

Thank you to all our wonderful customers who have visited our new retail store. It is just wonderful to meet you all. We have had so many nice compliments about our store and are just so happy you all like it. We will be expanding the fabric fabric area between Christmas and New Year and adding lots more funky gifts and wares to our selections.

Patterns, patterns and more patterns!

Well, we have finally uploaded all our new Pink Fig patterns to our website We have had so many new patterns arrive, that we have run out of storage space! We also have some wonderful new pattern books which should soon be on the website as well - time permitting!

Chelsea's Pink Fig patterns are just devine! So cute - pity I have a little boy (only kidding, he is a cutie and my darling baby)! Don't think the Lily Top would look that great on him. So all of you with little girls (mine are too big now!) enjoy these gorgeous patterns. Don't forget to send along any piccies of your creations - we would love to see them.

Thank you to all our customers eagerly awaiting the opening of our new store. We thank you for all your wonderful e-mails. As soon as we have a definate opening date, we will e-mail you all, as well as uploading information on our website and our ebay store home page

Don't forget to stay tuned for more store news - still lots of gorgeous goodies arriving. Heaps for those that don't sew and even more for those that do.

Speaking of sewing, I finally bought a new sewing maching and took it for a spin - now I just need to find the time and to find some cute little boy patterns! Any suggestions please pop me an email

Til next time

Sweet Peas, Buttons and Make It Perfect!

We have just received another delivery of gorgeous fabrics. Sweet Pea designed by Jackie Shapiro with children in mind - mind you these are perfect for big kids too! Great graphic prints, very 60s in style and just our thing! They should all be up on the website in the next few days. Here are some sneak piccies! I bought some sweet little canvases on the weekend, and I think these prints would be perfect!

Talking about perfect, the very talented Toni Coward from Make It Perfect patterns has just sent back our gorgeous samples. I sent Toni some of our fabrics and within days she has made these lovely little pieces, just perfect for our new store display. I tried them on our mannequins and they all fit perfectly!

Only 3 weeks to go til move into our new store.........if you are in Brissy just pop us an email for more information and an opening special voucher!

Here is a photo of the versitle wrap, pinny #1 and pinny #2. Don't they look great! All fabrics are available at our website, as well as all 3 patterns.
Thank you Toni!!

Welcome to Funky Fabrix Online!

Welcome to our first post!

Where to begin............we are so busy at the moment, only one month til we open our new Brisbane store!

Yesterday 10 large parcels arrived from overseas, all full of wonderful goodies.
Fabrics, vintage fabrics, patterns, and some of the cutest zip purses and clutch bags I have ever seen. Ofcourse my two girls are begging to keep some for themselves! They are made by The Dainty Squid and are just lovely. I am sure they will be a huge hit.

I have also ordered some delightful old fashioned pinnies for little girls with matching bloomers. Try as I might, I am yet to find any cute clothes for boys, so feel free to email with suggestions.

As you can tell our store will not only stock our funky range of fabric, it is be full of gifts and wares, as well as patterns, books, and ofcourse our large range of collectable vintage textiles.

Also very excited as our Shannon Lamden fabrics arrived yesterday. They are spectacular! I am hoping to have these on the website this week. I am so positive these will be so popular in our store that I am already compling my next order. My favourite is the white on red. As most of you can tell by our store fabrics, I just love red, especially the crisp contrast of red and white.

I am hoping to make a wall hanging of this beautiful fabric over the next few days, will make a wonderful display piece for our store ........... and afterwards will look fantastic hanging over our black and white couch!

We have also received another order from Japan. Japanese import fabrics are so popular at the moment. We just love the quirky patterns and the funky retro style prints.

We have received some classic damask style prints from Lecien as well as some very cuts children's style prints from Kokka of Japan.

Please don't forget to visit our store, we try to add new items daily. Not always easy with a bored 3 year old playing Duplo near my feet!
