I flew to Melbourne with my partner to visit his family and, true to my nature, added fabric shopping to my itinerary. I have stayed in Melbourne CBD a few times previously and had found this fabric shop (Tessuti Fabrics), which I briefly visited but didn’t have enough time. This time I make it my goal to explore the shop properly!
(As usual, no advertising here… A customer has the clearest, unbiased view.)
They have branches in a few suburbs in Melbourne, and Sydney in Australia.
- Melbourne City: Upper Ground Floor, 141 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, VIC
- Surry Hills, Sydney: 110 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills, NSW
- Chatswood, Sydney: 20/369 Victoria Ave, Chatswood, NSW
- Website: http://tessuti.com.au/
I went to the Melbourne store. Let me show you its deliciousness. I spent about 2 hours in there. It’s not a very big store, so 2 hours is a lot and I probably examined every roll of fabric (that I could reach) twice! The ladies there were very helpful when I had questions.
And what did I buy? I limited myself to 3.
There are lots of talented sewists and dressmaking bloggers who are from Melbourne. I secretly wished I would run into them at the shop. Actually, I would recognise them on the streets too :P
