    My friends and I have discovered the most awesome cheap fabric shop. I’m talking gorgeous demon (almost 2m wide) for $3 and $4 a metre. Also 100% wool jersey (again wide) for $5 and $6. Not to mention Italian fabrics, ribbing, knits, etc etc.

    Anyway it’s Eliza Fabrics in Sunshine and is definitely worth a trip.

    *sad face* ex-Melbournite here.

    Canberra has a dearth of good fashion fabric shops. There’s one independent one, but the staff were really rude to me, so I refuse to go there any more.

    Thanks Sophie, that’s even my side of town. I’ll look it up. My other cheap fave is Brunswick Fabrics on Sydney rd which I call the $3 shop cause that seems to be the only price.

    We might need to have a meet up of the Melb chapter of the Oliver + S devotees. Interstate visitors welcome!

    Oh I wish we could go on our holiday that has to now be postponed. I’d be there in a heart beat.

    Thanks LightningMcStitch I’ll have to check it out. Where are you located? I’m in Williamstown. Would love a Melb catch up if one ever happens.

    It is definitely worth a trip, they seem to get end of rolls. I passed up an Italian wool/linen blend for $6/m the other day, the original tag listed it at about $70/m!!!

    Thanks for the post Sophie.

    I went out there today (wrong side of town to me)… Oh my what a collection, I had no idea where to start or stop.

    Wool for $6 a metre!!!

    To give you an idea of how cheap this place was…

    7 metres of the softest knits ever

    3 metres of denim

    3 metres of jumper fleece

    2 metres of a stretch lace (ribbon stuff)

    and 2 zips for my patient shopping buddy (y 2 year old son!!)

    $36!!!

    That’s ridiculous

    Anyway, off to Brunswick tomorrow. I found another potential…

    Thanks Ladies, and I recommend making the trip to sunshine.

    (There is also a huge (very over crowded) second hand store up the end of the street, for those that love looking through old gear!)

    Hi Nicole, it’s a mix.

    It is run by a guy and his mum, they have big signs up for Estate clearances or something…

    They have clothes, furniture, outdoor planters, toys, crockery the usual stuff 🙂

    What a great tip – now I just have to convince my other half to take me there and spend non-existent plastic money!
