arriving now, but just for the australians

I get the sense from some of my friends living in Australia that those of you Down Under often feel left out when it comes to fabric availability. Is that correct?


Lisette fabrics at Spotlight


Well, I’m here to tell you that things are changing! We’ve got a really fun collection of Lisette prints that are arriving in Spotlight stores now that’s exclusive to Australia! Many of these prints and colorways will only be available in Australia–particularly the cameo print that’s already getting a lot of attention from those of you who have already seen previews of the collection. It won’t be coming to the U.S., folks, so grab it while you can! Base fabrics include poplin and our much-loved cotton lawn. Our favorite watercolor in sateen may still be available, too, if you can still find it.

And by the way, that cameo print is surprisingly versatile. Shorts, anyone?

And while it’s not quite in stores yet, you’ll also be seeing a collection of Lisette prints on twill arriving in the next couple weeks. I love this quality because it’s substantial enough to work really well for jackets, skirts, pants, and even home decor but is also lightweight and drapey enough to be used for some dress and tunic styles. I’m told these fabrics are on their way to stores now, so watch for them, too.

And for those of you in the U.S., don’t despair! We’ll have a new collection of Lisette fabrics coming to JoAnn stores in early January, too. The U.S. collection will be mostly different prints and fabrications than these. So it might be time to find yourself a friend and arrange a little international shipping trade? I’m just saying.

(I can already anticipate your next question, so let me address that, too: Yes, there will be a new Lisette sewing pattern as well. I’m not sure of the exact availability date yet, but I’ll keep you posted as I learn the details. I think you’re really going to like it!)

Wow, so pretty. Love that we get our own collection in Oz. Love your work! Thanks so much.

Woohoo, new Lisette fabrics in Aus! We Aussies do feel very deprived getting sewing patterns and such seasons after those in the US, so this is very welcome news. Hope to see close ups of the fabric in my feed soon!

Lovely just lovely, but could you manage to send some to New Zealand we also get forgotten even more than our Aussie friends. We have Spotlight too!!

Oh, these look lovely – Are they “made in the USA”? – and the new pattern is tantalising too! I am a happy Aussie 🙂
