Hurray! Good news...

The very lovely Suzanna and her team
have finally re-opened their shop in Christchurch,
they have an excellent website
but it is lovely go to in and fondle feel the fabric for yourself!

Yesterday was their first day open and today is the first official day,
I just took these pictures with my iphone
but you get the idea, this shop is LOVELY,
and you don't have to be a sewer to enjoy it!

These candles are divine, I want some of these!

The top clock in this picture I love
it's galvanised steel and has that lovely industrial look
so popular for so long!

There are lots of Marimekko products, like these mugs
and tins. And some stunning melamine beakers that
I'm sure will jump into my basket sometime!!

These wooden tags are really lovely
I'm pretty sure my sister Sharyn would like these!

This is just a sample of the things they make.
Basically you can have anything made for you in any fabric!

This is not a great picture, but Suzanna has designed an ingenious
system for choosing fabric, so many lovely lovely fabrics.
I brought 10 fat quarters and a shower curtain.
If you live in Christchurch, Bolt of Cloth is situated in the Colombo
(formerly Spotlight Plaza). If you haven't been there,
it's just lovely now. Really stylish shops, good coffee
and a nice atmosphere, oh and excellent parking!
Please do support our local businesses. Suzanna lost her home on the 22nd
and is such a brave, gutsy lady who continues to contribute so much
to those around her and seems to let nothing stand in her way!
Don't you just love a good news story from Christchurch!!
