I have tried two new Australian stores and am very impressed. I ordered fabric from one and a pattern from the other on a Sunday and received both within a week. This is very good as we live in a coastal town not a city.

 The first purchase was a layer cake from Cotton Factory. It is a Carolyn Friedlander Carikai layer cake. I will be using it to make outhouse for a friend.

I bought the Outhouse pattern from Clairs fabrics. I wanted the pattern instead of the PDF which I usually buy as it is paper piecing and I wanted to make sure I had the size exactly right with no printer modifications. A lovely bonus was two charm square size swatches of Carolyn Frienlander fabric. I have already used one in an outhouse!

I would recommend both of these shops to fellow Australians. The prices are very good for Australia (which is very expensive compared to the US) and the service is excellent.
