A Quick Trip to Germany

Our few short days in Germany is almost over. Here you can see our hotel which was right near the Frankfurt train station. The station is full of delicious food stands, wonderful bakeries and delightful gift stores.

We had a lovely train journey to the Bavian Forest for New Years, in a lovely little village called
Bayerisch Eisenstein. Cold and rainy but with a little snow left on the ground, we spent the day wondering around, still trying to recover from jet lag.............and yes it is as cold as it looks!

Tonight we popped out for dinner and the cobble stones streets were all lit up with fairy lights and Christmas trees.

Off to Salzburg tomorrow!
Thanks to the lovely girls looking after our store / website whilst we are gone. You have been keeping them very busy! Our store reopens this Monday.
Happy New Year to all our wonderful friends, family and customers! See you all in 2010!!

Our holiday!

We have arrived in Seoul and off to Frankfurt this morning. Unforunately we only have half a day here, so we won't be visiting the largest fabric shop in the world! Yes Seoul has the largest fabric shop in the world and we don't get to see it. Seoul produces some gorgeous poplin cottons, so hopefully we will get back again to source some beautiful fabrics.

Very cold here, minus 6 at the moment, and snow everywhere!

The girls are busy in the store today packing orders (in hot humid weather I hear) and they will open the store next Monday 4th.

We have lots of new patterns and fabrics arriving, and hopefully I will get a chance to list a few in the coming days - yes my laptop comes on every holiday!

Good Earth Alexander Henry

We are very excited to have the new Alexander Henry range, Good Earth in store now. We just love the 60s look and feel to these wonderful textiles. My personal favourites are the paisleys and florals. These have a wonderful vintage nostalgic feel. I collect 60s fabrics, and these would not look out of place in my collection.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful customers. We have had a truly amazing year, our best yet! Last week saw the team working 14 hour days just to send all orders, in time for Christmas we hope!

We will be taking a family break after Christmas, but Funky Fabrix will be left in the very capable hands of our wonderful staff.

Please note that our retail store will be closed from Monday 28th of December and will reopen Monday 4th of January. As usual our website will be operating 24/7!

Saffron Craig - Fantastic Fairies

"We have received the first batch of Saffron Craig's "Fantastic Fairies" range. Of course Saffron's fairies aren't just any fairies. These creatures are sprightly and joyful, dancing in circles, around flowers and inside love hearts."

The range features 4 wonderful designs in pinks, reds, browns and greens:

  • Loveheart Fairies—all over print of lovehearts with fairy motives
  • Fairy Circles—geometric pattern print of fairy circles
  • Fairies in Flowers—varying flower motives sprinkled with little fairies
  • Tulip Fairy—large motif surronded by butterflies and tulips, great for centre panels

These fabrics are printed on 100% light-weight cotton, 112cm wide and are now available.

New colour way for the Owl range
We now also have two popular designs in a new brown & blue colour way, complementing the brown Owl in Trees:

  • Owl Nesting in brown and blue
  • Trees Mignon in blue and green
