Located in the Hunter Valley in NSW, Lotus Fabrics specialise in Batik and hand dyed fabrics.
We are a Certified Shop for Judy Niemeyer from Quiltworx and carry all of her patterns. If there is a pattern you particularly want and it's not on my website, please contact me and I will get one for you - (I may have one and it's just not on-line!) I am also a Certified Instructor, and as such, I am free to travel and teach either at shops or quilting groups.
Also in the Foundation paper piecing I carry some of the amazing patterns by Jaqueline de Jonge as well as her palette of rainbow hand dyed fabrics from Anthology. These colours are very intense - just stunning!
Other designers in stock include McKenna Ryan and Edyta Sitar for Laundry Basket Quilts - both patterns and their fabrics. I also carry a range from Plum Easy Patterns including the wonderful Folded Star HotPad. Have a look in Shop > Patterns & Kits > Plum Easy Patterns.
We carry MasterPiece, Bottom Line and KingTut threads from Superior Threads and their Superior Snippers which are simply sensational! We also carry the full range of Daruma Silk threads in 60 beautiful colours which can be used for hand and machine work.
So if you are in the Hunter Valley or just passing through, drop in to see my collection of beautiful fabrics at Thorpe & Co Sewing Machines, 15 Main Road, Boolaroo. Or go to 'Shop' above for patterns and kits, threads and other quilting essentials still available on-line.
