I would like to go to the Auburn store ,maybe in a couple of weeks time, Dee Why used to be a good store until they moved to Belrose now they have nothing of interest for me,half the fabrics have gone.
You are all lucky, it sounds like the Usa has some great craft stores maybe I should move there.LOL. If anyone from Usa is ever in Australia you will be dissappointed with our craft shops,trust me, we could really do with a Joanns here,badly.
I have a question for all Usa poppet makers, in what section of your craft store do they stock Alova Suede? Im asking cause here we don't have anything named that but I did find some suede in the upholstery section which seemed to work well.
Hi my name is Ness,I live in Australia and love cats and cat themed things and horse themed stuff too. I like the colors pink,purple and olive green and earthly colors and not a fan of the color red,and I do like unicorns,mythical fantasy stuff like that and im femmine so i like girly stuff.I like pendants and necklaces,bracelets,not big on handmade earrings. Scent wise I like coffee,ainseed,lime,chocolate,vanilla. I also like candy and chocolate.I have no allergies.
My wishlist: Large items: Crochet cat bed (in my wists) Emboidered hand towel (in my wists) This style of bag with zipper (in my wists) Polymer clay sculpture(my wists)cat,horse or woman cream color Alova Suede material cat blanket
Medium items: Knitted scarf style in wists(in my wists) Fused glass pendants cat themed Cat charm bracelet Poppet clothes-to fit 14 inch tall poppet amigurumi cat/animals Pot holder Oven mitt Extra long leg warmers for muscly legs
Small items: Handmade coffee soap Dishcloths Embroidery hand towel Napkins-gold colour Placemats_gold color
I brought a dolls clothes pattern for those 18" plastic looking dolls the old ones,but now I have no idea what ratio or pixel size to shrink it too for the poppet. If anyone can help and it works when I make it i can email the pattern when its resized. I know it is about 5 inches too big all over for any poppet.
Just wondering how many of you have been to different Spotlight stores apart from the one close to where you live. So far I have been to Belrose,Rockdale, and Castle Hill, the latter two were not long ago as my fiancee had to buy some computer stuff, and Belrose isn't that far from me. Before Spotlight moved from Dee Why to Belrose the fabric selection was alot of variety now it really sucks the rolls of fabric has been downsized.
I am wondering if anyone has been to the Bondi Junction or Merrylands store and if they are big stores,and if it has a good variety of fabrics.
