Fabric and houseware stores in Sydney.

Back from Sydney for a week now, how time flies. I wanted to point out a few more fabulous spots.

Cheesoon and Fitzgerald
387 Crown St
Surry Hills

This store sells Marimekko fabric off the bolt along with other manufacturers. They also sell lots of cool housewares you won't find in other stores. The guys in here were quite nice and pulled out their 2 big baskets of remnants for me to sort thru. I purchased myself some great off cuts of Marimekko (BF helped me choose) so keep an eye out for some new product. Some of these will also be used for the patchwork quilt I am starting. Of course right now just collecting swatches for this.

Cloth- great store that does their own design and printing. Very simple monochromatic or 2 colour contrast prints. The women in here were super nice and have awesome product. I picked up some cool fabric covered buttons which I can't wait to use on some bags.

Birdtextile 380 Cleveland St Surry Hills Syndey
My dream store. Fabric, clothes and housewares. I can spend hours in this store but prefer to own my own. This wonderful store is all about sustainability in design.

All of these shops have so inspired me! A pretty successful to start sewing!
Before I go, one more pic, I met this handsome one outside Birdtextile.
