Sunday Stash #193 – Clair’s Fabrics

Sometimes there’s fabric right under your nose and you don’t even realise it! Usually I can sniff it out, but with the seasons changing, the pollen is playing havoc with my good olfactories. You know that situation where you totally need/want/whatever a certain fabric, and you need it right now? That totally illogical state of, “Yes, you can have my kid for a half yard of that.” Some of you might have answered yes to that last statement a little too easily! No judgements here!



Well, a few weeks back as I was working on my #ShimmerCitySampler, I knew I wanted to incorporate more of Jennifer Sampou’s Shimmer 2, of which I had only mere scraps left! Of course I could buy the lot from a US fabric mecca, but it would take weeks to arrive. I was aching for some instant gratification. That’s when I remembered buying from Aussie local, Clair’s Fabrics, last year when I was in need of some Kona Celestial. (I swear I blackout when buying fabric!) Anyway, after looking through her website, I saw she had a few of the Shimmer 2 pieces left, so I put half yards of each of these feather prints in my cart.


You know what happens when you start building a cart, right? The cart begins to over-floweth! Because I still had Alison Glass on the brain, I picked up a half yard of this Handcrafted print. I’ve bought it before, and am using it in one of the countless works-in-progress that I haven’t shown you. Hmm, I guess I need to get that out and about so I can make all my fabric purchases mean something! Plus, those orange flying geese have an intensity level nine, which suits me to a Mr. T!


Finally, (and how reservedly) I threw in this half yard cut of Joel Dewberry’s Notting Hill Historic Tile print because it was on sale, and surprisingly, I didn’t already have it. I know, I know, I’m not supposed to buy just because something is on sale, but it’s my money and I’ll buy if I want to! I’m completely admonishing myself only, because I know all of you are nothing but fabric enablers. Which, if I think about it, are the only type of friends worth having! With some sort of Australia Post voodoo magic, my package was at my office within forty-eight hours of me pressing YAAAASSSS. Long story short, if you’re in Australia, and need fabric fast, check out Clair’s Fabrics because she has just about all of it!

    You stuck to your fabric manifesto for the first 6/7 months of the year. So even if you go back to usual buying habits for the rest of this year, you’re still ahead overall!

    You gotta get what you wanna get, most of the time! The Alison Glass fabric is one of my favorites! Sales are not always a no-no…there are some must haves lurking in that category!
