Hi there, My hubby and I run Japan Made, a Japanese fabrics and kimono online store. We import all our textiles direct from Osaka and Kyoto and sell them via our website www.japanmade.com.au and at markets around Sydney. Gaku, my husband is from Chiba on the East coast of Japan and whilst living with him in Japan I fell in love with Japanese textiles. All our fabrics and kimono are either in excellent or very good condition and are perfect for quilters, sewers, interior decorators or those that simply love beautiful things.It would be great if you could post our website details on your blog. Thanks, Tina Imada :-)

Dawn S. writes: Hello, I would like to tell you about a great shop in Mittagong. It is basically curtain and soft furnishing fabrics, but there is a great range and the staff are really helpful. They also make curtains, supply rods and tracks and also sell ready-made curtains. They will also take orders to make specific things, if you don’t want to do the hard work, like cushions, throws, table clothes etc. Worth the drive to the Southern Highlands, enjoy a coffee and the atmosphere. The name of the shop: Fox Fabrics (now under new management). Address: 8 Bowral Road, Mittagong. Phone: 47 822911. Thankyou, Dawn S
