New trends of 2011

We are so excited about 2011!  Funky Fabrix is going to continue to lead the Australian market place by travelling in a new path and direction this year.  We will still continue to bring you all the fabrics that have become our signature style in the last 5 years, but will also be focusing on the Earth...........lots of natural fibres, Earth friendly recycled materials, organics, bamboos, Australian designer fabric, handprinted fabrics, and our very own range of handprinted organic textiles, plus and even more patterns, sewing needs including thread, buttons, and more.

Our wonderful designer is working on our new website as we type and we are so excited!  And I am slowly designing our new range (I stress the slowly).  Fabric design is a new medium for me, I have worked on canvas, ceramics and in the areas of Architecture and Interior Design, but designing with a computer is all new to me! So once again I stress the SLOWLY!

We will also be attending the US International Quilt Markets this year, in May and October.  We hope this will mean even lower prices for our customers, and the opportunity to bring you all the latest fabrics and trends first here on Funky Fabrix.

Stayed tuned for heaps of prizes and offers on our countdown to the International Markets and for great exclusive giveaways on our return.
