japanese tana lawn at spotlight on
5 years agorastis @rastis
aussie girls, i was in spotlight picking up some elastic for all the pants and skirts i am currently working on and i saw on the clearance rack quite a few rolls of the Japanese Tana Lawn- marked down to $8 metre… i know some of you ladies love these as much as i do- and as they normally retail at $15 a metre- it makes them close to half price… not too bad!5 years ago
Thanks for tip, rastis. I have a chance to go to Spotlight tomorrow, after dentist (yuk). What does the fabric look like? Is it plain or does it have Japanese motifs on it? What do you use it for, in particular?5 years agorastis @rastis
needlewoman- it’s lovely soft, super light weight cotton….perfect for light summer clothing- it’s a top weight fabric… i have made a few things with it and i know a lot of the other ladies in here sew with it as well!
it doesn’t have japanese motifs- more liberty-ish style designs
i’ve made a few things in it- including this ice cream blouse
some other designs in this picture
some of the ones nicole used here were on the clearance rack at my spotlight-
not sure if your spotlight will have them on clearance or not (who knows they might have more than mine had!)- but might be worth checking!5 years agoTamara @justsewit
I have to get more elastic tomorrow from my spotlight so will check to see if they have any. I couldn’t get any last time.5 years agoLightning McStitch @LightningMcStitch
Rastis I’ve got the three in your second picture only in different colourways, and they’re nicely piled up and I haven’t decided what to do with them yet either. I went to Spotlight yesterday for buttons. And came away with buttons (and more sewing machine needles, and fusible web for making bias binding, and some cheap quilting fabric which will be great for making bias binding,… for something…)5 years agomeleliza @meleliza
Wow, that’s some nice stuff to come out of a chain store! We don’t have anything like that on this side. I sometimes with I lived a little closer to Japan.5 years ago
I did check with my Spotlight on Wed about the Tana lawn, (and thanks for the wonderfully useful description, I’m sure it will come in handy in the future, or at another Spotlight) but no luck; they didn’t even have it in their computer. Yes Meleliza, Spotlight’s not bad; it’s improved radically in the last 18mths or so in all sorts of ways altho in my store, you need a forklift to sort thru many of the bolts. The staff don’t always have time to ‘clean up’. Lincraft has had a face lift but I swear on my Janome, that most of their quilt fabric hasn’t changed/got new stock for 5 yrs. Good button stock, tho. However, compared to its high standards when it first came to Adelaide, it’s descended to the pits. And, I just discovered that another really good quilt shop is shifting from the burbs right out to the Hills area. Great for them but lousy for those without a car. It’s happening a lot lately; our population is just too small to support fabric shops when times are tough.5 years ago
Spotlight Mt Barker has a huge range.
There is a good bus service from Adelaide.5 years ago

Spotlight Bayswater(VIC) had about 10 rolls at $8 a meter, all marked as overstock, so check the discount table as they are the same patterns as the rolls on the full price shelf!5 years ago
Thanks Sarah G; may be able to check it out next month.5 years agowith love Heidi @with love Heidi
All the Japanese lawn is on special at spotlight from next week, 2nd to 19th Jan 2012. All of it is $8/m if you have a VIP card. I might just have to think about some.2 years agoOck Du Spock @Ock Du Spock
For the Aussie girls: I was in Spottie today picking up some buttons and I saw a bunch of lisette fabrics on the clearance rack and prints charming linens that were a further 25% off. Not sure how much all of them came down to, but I got a sales person to ring up a few and quite a lot came up at $4 metre (the linens)… which might be the same in your spotlights too, for those interested.2 years ago
Thank you very much, I am heading to Spotters tomorrow.2 years ago
