Yesterday I tackled a job which I had been putting off for a while - a trip to Spotlight. And yes, as usual, I came home grumpy. Sometimes its having to wait in the queue for 30-45 minutes; other times its the mess I have to try to push the pram through. This time I was totally frustrated by the dismal range of fabric - barely any denim in stock, only a small range of linen, and not much at all to choose from in the way of t-shirting fabric. I was all excited about sewing some summer clothes for the kids, but came home ready to give up sewing!
Phil wonders why I still bother with Spotlight, but if a girl's gotta sew, a girl's gotta sew! He suggests importing fabric myself (Hilco - German, I think - manufactures a great collection, and these are usually featured in the Ottobre pattern magazines I use). Hmmm, I think I already have enough to do... but hey, if any of you have spare time to fill, I would love to see an Perth-based or an online-Australia-based fabric shop with an up-to-date range of fabric... please? I will be your faithful customer!
