Craft & Fabric chain in Australia (& NZ & Singapore): Spotlight.

Spotlight is the art/craft/home interior/party supply giant in Australia. They are also in New Zealand and  Singapore (and briefly in Hong Kong, but it closed down a few years ago). It is my most frequented store of all time! I have spent many hours and majority of my craft budget there. (Not advertising for them, just sharing my experience. I buy 95% of my fabrics there).

There are more than 125 stores in Australia. I mostly go to the Mt Gravatt store in Brisbane, Logan store in Logan City, and Ashmore store on the Gold Coast. They are all much about the same in terms of stock and layout. I go mostly for scrapbooking materials in my papercrafting years, and later sewing supplies, of course. Fabrics, dress patterns, notions, cushion inserts, everything. Sometimes I look at the manchester and home decoration sections.

    1. I’m scared of online fabric shopping. I’ve never done it. It’s tempting though, so many choices. Have you had any luck? Spotlight is good for a range of average quality textiles, but if one is after higher quality fabrics then would have to visit a specialty store.
