To those of you who expressed dismay that the fabric had been discontinued online it is back in stock. It is available in size 30 x 30cm in both Irish Linen and cotton satin.
Its a long story but basically I was trying to be super organised before Christmas so put in an order for my fabric from UK – which would then go to the screen printers in Durban (another town in South Africa). It all went well the fabric arrived and the screen printing was done a week before the factory closed for Christmas – YAY! My plan was to pack all the kits for Australia early January and send them over ahead of the classes in February, but the screen printed fabric got lost en-route from Durban – not so YAY! I pleaded with the Post master to look around the back and check for a big box and also pleaded with the courier company but to no avail it was lost…..
So I spoke nicely to my husband, asked him for a loan and re-ordered the fabric. It arrived two days ago by Fedex but you can guess what happened next…….THEY FOUND THE PARCEL!
Meanwhile I ordered Irish Linen from a company in UK and they sent the wrong fabric – so it had to go back and be replaced. But when it arrived the courier company charged me customs duty again – so I had to put in a claim for the additional duty which meant a mountain of paperwork – BOTHER! What is it with 2012 and fabric?
Needless to say I am very relieved to now have all my ducks in a row – but there is still the small matter of the loan to be paid back, which means I am temporarily being held to ransom, and my husband is enjoying every moment of his position of power:)
Till next time, wherever you are happy stitching.
