For the last couple of years our site has been hosted with Posterous. Unfortunately, this service is closing down (as of 30 April, 2013). While we have been working in the background to build a new site, this end date has crept up rather quickly. As such, we are a little under-done.
We have a new, custom layout ready to go, and many words and pictures to go with it which we will endeavour to post as soon as possible.
So hold tight. We are still here.
House of Cloth.
Our first delivery of autumn/winter fabrics was lost in transit for two weeks!! Thankfully they have finally arrived, and we present some of them to you.
This is “Vista’, a 100% superfine merino jersey. Shown here in Salsa and Navy, it is also available in black. Perfect for lightweight warm tops.
Then there is ‘Top Cat’, which is a merino/nylon blend. Shown below in Lapis, it is also available in Ketchup and Malibu.
‘Dolce’ is a nylon/rayon double scalloped lace. Shown here in Malibu, it is also available in black.Will make a beautiful overlay over a plain top or dress.
‘Lined Up’ is a 100% rayon georgette. We have it in three colours – Otter, Tomato (both shown below) and Acapulco.
Plus a printed viscose/spandex jersey, ‘Secretly Snake’. Beautiful jewel colours.
We hope you enjoy this selection.
The latest collection of Japanese kimono fabrics are now available. The collection includes two fabrics which are sections of an unpicked kimono.
There is also a beautiful wool fabric in rich autumn tones which would look equally good hanging on the wall or made into a cushion.
Hope you enjoy the collection. There is limited stock available of all of these fabrics.
The newest additions to our fabrics arrived last week, our first delivery of the year. We have added two more colours to the beautiful Resort silk/linen range, being Amethyst and Fossil.
We also have two more colours in the Rajiv handwoven silk range – Avocado and Olive. Our window display has the Avocado with the beautiful vintage style coat Wendy made with this fabric.
With a fair bit of hot weather still ahead of us, the arrival of more linens and cotton fabrics is timely. The plain linens are in black, navy, natural and taupe.
There are linen/cotton blends in violet, azure and black. We have two colours, navy and mocca, of a jacquard stretch cotton, perfect for pants or skirts. And a beautiful printed cotton which will look gorgeous in dresses, tops or skirts.
Our December newsletter is out now, and has images of some of our latest additions to our stock.
And don’t forget about the vintage fabric. We have lots of new pieces available, and the range is always changing.
Wendy, Toni and I wish you all a safe and happy Christmas and New year. Hope to see you again in 2013.
The latest delivery of summer cottons has arrived, to add to our range. These include two light clip-spot floral cottons, perfect for floaty tops or girls dresses, and a bright colourful stretch cotton for that perfect summer dress. Waiting for you to turn them into beautiful garments.
We will be showcasing the first of the fabrics from our spring/summer range between 1 and 4pm tomorrow. Pop in and have a look.
Here is a sneak peek of some of them
We are pleased to announce that Linnet Good has been engaged as our new teacher for our sewing classes.
We will run three new classes over the next few months, starting at the end of September. Please see the attached schedule for an introduction to Linnet, as well as details of the classes.
Our class schedule has just been posted on the Classes page.
You will find us at the Australian Sheep and Wool show again this year, from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd July. And we have some beautiful new fabrics for you to see and feel. Chocolate and black heavy boucle, perfect for jackets; dark green and a rich brick colour coating; a rich cherry red lightweight boucle – just some of the fabrics available. They are very tricky to photograph to get the colours right, so the photos below are not a true representation.
Come and say hello – we will be in the Osborne pavilion at site 13, which is the last site on the left hand side. Hope to see you there.
