We have knocked out a wall and Funky Fabrix is roomier, with even more new stock on display!
Sshhh don't tell my daughter #1 that I have included a photo of her working very hard.

New Surface Art in Stock!

We have some new Surface Art fabric and products in store! Luscious hand printed home decor fabrics, printed and designed in Australia!

Surface Art is the creation of Moyra Jones. Not only is Moyra absolutely lovely! she is very talented quoting her influences as Japanese Art, European Design and bold creations of the 50s, 60s and 70s.

Surface Art fabrics are 100% medium weight cotton, perfect for home decor projects and funky wearables. We have been stocking Surface Art for a few years now, and they are still our favourite Australian designed home decor fabrics. The quality is amazing, and the prints are bold and striking.

Funky Fabrix also stocks a wide range of ready made Surface Art cushions, and now in store - little girl's gorgeous skirts and women's Alines.

Alexander Henry Fashion For Home

We have been eagerly awaiting these gorgeous home decor fabric by Alexander Henry. Our home decor range in store is looking a little depleted, so we were very excited when these arrived. Now to find a new home for them! Our store has recently been updated and I have already filled all the new shelves with lovely new fabrics - we seem to be outgrowing our little store.

Good news for our vintage fabric customers, we are soon opening another room at the back of the store filled with vintage goodness. We have bolts and bolts of original vintage textiles, and these will be available for viewing soon.

These gorgeous chairs have been given a new lease of life using Alexander Henry's Fashion for Home fabrics (photos via

This fabric above, Spots and Stripes is my new favourite fabric! These wonderful large scale prints are screen printed on oxford cotton (cotton canvas) and a fabulous weight for creating funky home dec pieces.
