Weekends - the new collection by Erin McMorris for Free Spirit Fabrics

Weekends is a fresh new collection of designs inspired by sunny relaxing days, with time to garden, bike or picnic in the park. Combining hand-drawn flowers with precise patterns and dots create designs that are summery and modern. The palettes, with butter yellow, tomato red, lavender and leaf green will take you from dawn to dusk. Enjoy your Weekends!
You will find the Collection here~!

Vintage Fabric Garage Sale!

As many of you may know, Funky Fabrix started out as a vintage fabric store. Over time we have been so busy keeping up with Funky Fabrix new fabric division, our vintage fabric has been sadly neglected!

We still have store rooms full of gorgeous vintage fabric, which really deserve a new home. Ofcourse we will not part with it all. We collect vintage Scandinavian textiles, so we will be keeping these plus most of our bolts (for a new project next year) but we would love to find homes for the many pieces we have in our collection. we are having a vintage fabric garage sale! Yes you can come along to Funky Fabrix (Mitchelton, Brisbane) on Saturday afternoon October 9th and Sunday morning October 10 to purchase vintage fabric pieces from our collection.

We would love to have held it sooner, but thanks to our fantastic customers, we have just been too busy to get organised! We have a new staff member starting this week, so that should give us some spare time to unearth all our vintage fabric treasures in time for the sale!

So don't forget pencil in October 9th and 10th in your diary!
