As a sewist, no holiday is complete without visiting the local Fabric Stores!
On our recent road trip around South Australia, including the Barossa, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Adelaide, we visited some amazing fabric stores we wanted to share with you!
We visited South Australia on our Operation Tiny House New Years’ Eve for the 2019-2020 New Year’s Eve (see our matching outfits from our New Year’s Eve Trip here), so we had a couple of favourites to visit again and some new ones to try!
Fabric Stores in Adelaide
DK Fabrics is a wonderland of fabrics! From dance fabrics to evening wear to cotton – it has such a diverse range of fabrics.
If you are looking for a bargain, there are some discounted fabrics for about $3.00. In contrast, if you are looking for more expensive fabrics like lace, sequins or satin, DK Fabric’s also has you covered.
This store has become a favourite to visit every time we come to South Australia!
The Fabric Store
The Fabric Store has become a favourite store no matter what city you visit in Australia or New Zealand – and Adelaide is no exception!
With a wonderful range of Liberty Fabrics, Linen and allsorted special occasions and headstock fabrics, it is hard to walk out of the Fabric Store empty handed!
Ferrier Fashion Fabrics
Ferrier Fashion Fabrics reminds us of the fabric stores we used to visit with our Nan as children. It feels like you are walking into a treasure trove of a carefully picked collection of fabrics in a family-owned business.
This fabric store is filled with great quality and beautiful fabrics, whether you are looking for premium daywear, knit fabric or evening fabrics.
Tricia’s Discount Fabrics
Tricia’s Discount Fabrics is a wonderful land for those sewists who use lots of quilting or dance fabrics – it is literally a warehouse stacked full of options!
Fabric Stores in South Australia (outside of Adelaide)
Jenny’s Sewing Centre
Jenny’s Sewing Centre was such a joy to visit! The store has recently celebrated its 45th Anniversary – how amazing!
The store has an extensive range of quality quilting cotton fabrics as well as a very good range of fabrics for sewing garments.
Fleurs of Stirling
Address: 8 Mount Barker Rd, Stirling SA 5152
While Fleurs of Stirling has a limited range of fabrics, they are a great stop for those threads and buttons you need.
When we stopped her on our trip, we picked up some wonderful striped cotton for $5 a metre and some knitting books for future projects.
Visiting all of these wonderful fabric stores, we couldn’t leave empty-handed! Here are our favourite three fabrics we purchased.
HELLO you beautiful shiny fabric.
There is some eye-catching about this fabric. It falls somewhere in between gold and rose gold fabric.
It is a sketchy knit fabric that has a wonderful drape – perfect for a birthday party dress!
Purchased from Ferrier Fashion Fabrics.
Cost per metre: $32.00
Fabric: 70% nylon, 27% metallic, 3% elastane
Available on their website here.
This cotton is not your average striped fabric – it has a strong red, navy and tiny tan stripe.
For those who have been following our sewing journey for a while, you’ll know we love matching outfits – this is fabric will be an outfit later in the year, so keep a look out!
Purchased from DK Fabrics
Cost per metre: $6.00
If this fabric doesn’t say festive Christmas, what does?
With Christmas fast approaching, it is never too soon to get organised – we have a lot of sewing projects to finish between now and Christmas, but this fabric is on the list!
