I get around...

...fabric stores. If you've heard rumours suggesting I get around anywhere else, please be assured that they are greatly exaggerated entirely fictitious.  I don't even go out. 
My patterns, hardware and interfacings, however, are getting out there.  Every week, we get loads of enquiries about where to buy You SEW girl! goodies, now that I've closed the online store, so I thought it was time I did an update. 

Well, of course, you can still come in to see us in Northcote....

Failing that, the list of stores - both online and bricks-and-mortar - is expanding on my website stockist page. And if your local/favourite doesn't have the YOU SEW GIRL! products you're looking for, please ask them to get them in for you. You (as consumers) have more sway than I do on that front. 

GJ's in East Brunswick (pictured at top) was one of the first stores to take on my patterns in 2004.  They still stock the full range of patterns as well as hardware and interfacings.  They also display loads of my samples.   GJ's don't have an online shop, but if ever you're in Melbourne, it's well worth the trip to this little gem.

For you online shoppers,  The CurlyPops Shop launched my patterns this week, to compliment the fab CurlyPops fabrics and hand-crafted goodies. If you look through the archives of her blog, you'll see that these patterns have been tried and tested by the fabulous Ms CurlyPops.
Under the Mulberry Tree and Voodoo Rabbit have my hardware online and Voodoo Rabbit also has my patterns.  Other stores, such as Eureka Patchwork in Ballarat have the full range and assure me that it's on the way to being online.

And there's more on the way to Townsville, QLD.  If you're on Facebook, watch Little Miss Quilty and Quilter's Blessing for news of a huge range of patterns, hardware and interfacings arriving...any day now..... and there might also be exciting news about workshops.  Stay tuned.
 Quilt Fabric Delights did indeed list patterns, hardware and interfacing online this week.  You can see it (and purchase online) here.

In other news, my newly revamped Pyramid Purse Pattern is available as a pdf download through Pink Chalk Fabrics.  It even made cover-pic for the Pink Chalk newsletter this week.
And don't forget that on Wednesday, I'll be at Bargain Box Fabrics in MorningtonDo drop in if you're in the area.

I'll also be in Canberra on the weekend, at Addicted to Fabric.  They also stock a wide range of my paterns and hardware, and carry a great selection of interfacings.

Well, that's enough excitment for me for a while.  I must get back to my knitting.

Hi Nikki,
I just love your Pyramid Purse Pattern (saw it at Pink Chalk Fabrics)!

Can we make them for craft shows?

Thanks!
Heather

I really don't mind small producers of handcrafted goods using my patterns for craft markets. (The only time I get litigious is when people share my intellectual property - ie. the patterns and instructions).
