meet up

Remember Fabric Fanatics, the sponsor of the July fabrics and accessories giveaway? Today, I am so happy to meet up with Kelly, the lady behind Fabric Fanatics, for the first time. Kelly personally travels 350km from her shop to meet up with her fans and customers here. She has a stall set up at Strait Quay, Penang, until this Sunday. If you are around and want to grab some beautiful fabrics and accessories, or just to see this pretty lady in person, be sure to visit her stall before she goes back. For those who can’t make your self appear here, you are welcome to visit the Fabric Fanatics website and facebook to view and order the products, Fabric Fanatics ships to world wide.

Years ago, I used to think that buying craft materials especially beautiful linen fabrics was a nightmare. Now, I am glad to say that with the well spread of craft sharing across the country, handmade has made its way to gain more fans locally. With the current trend, we begin to see more sewing related supplies coming in. Sewing hobbyists like me are so lucky to be able to buy irresistible fabrics locally without even have to get out from the country (like what I used to do). Many fabrics were imported, cut into smaller pieces like fat quarters and fat eights, which is the right size to sew small projects like purse and zakka crafts.

I really enjoy today’s shopping, more fabrics to stuff up in my “already-choke-up” sewing room. As many of you may already knew, currently I am busy with my new home renovation, lots of design and planning to deal with my Interior Designer. I still craft but in slower pace, hope to sew and share more patterns & tutorials when I am almost done with my new home renovation. Please stay tune with all my updates.

I met Kellie when I went back to Malaysia a few years back! She is so very sweet.. I will be coming back to Malaysia for good end of next year and looking forward to see more fabric store or maybe open one too!

I am also fabric fanatics' customer. Kelly was very helpful and thoughtful even when my package was mistakenly sent to her other customer. She followed up this and made sure that my package reached me.

I understand how you feel, Kate. It was similar here few years ago where getting decent craft materials in Penang has limited choice.
