Hi Everyone,

I just thought I would let you know a great store in Kingston Beach (just outside of Hobart) called Wafu Works. There is lots of beautiful kimono silks for quilting and other cool Japanese crafty things.  Sashiko embroidery gear, lots of vintage japanese fabrics and loads of odds and ends. It is a fun place to shop because you just don't what you are going to find, its kinda of an op-shop of Japanese craft (just not quite as cheap!).

It's worth a look if you live locally, or are travelling in the State.

Hey thanks,
I think might have to get out of my pjs,  get the kidlet in the car and go and check it out.
I haven't been to Kingston for ages either, woo hoo, a day out!

Nice to hear from another islander. I hope you find some cool stuff.

Are you making any crafty creations that you plan to sell? Just wondering if you have ever tried a stall at Salamanca Market?

I loved that shop, a little out of my price range (I drooled a lot though) but there was a basket of toys for my son to play with, always a bonus!
I haven't been to Salamanca for ages, I started to find that there was far too much poorly made expensive junk aimed at tourists for my tastes, I liked it when it was affordable to hold a stall there just to get rid of your stuff, I think the Showgrounds market is the only really affordable one but that is often like a big garage sale.
Yeh it is nice to know there is another Tasmanian craftster out there.  Grin

One more Tassie here too...new here even. Smiley And another who loves that shop...I have a couple beautiful pieces of fabric from there (also out of my price range, but irresistible!), I've had them for probably over a year but I'm too scared to use them b/c they're so gorgeous! I was just wondering the other day if the shop was still there, so I guess that solves that!

I'm not from Tassie...but from "the mainland"...Sydney to be exact...anyways...not anything to do with fabrics...BUT...Launcestion has a fantastic paper craft type store "Regal Crafts"...I've purchased card making goodies from them several times over the net...their prices are really good!
