Friday Fabric Shopping Trip!

I’ve just realised that I wrote this post a while ago, and I never, um, published it.

It’s still relevant, but it’s a little bit of old news. I’m really sorry!

There are places still available on the bus though if you are interested!


I’m delighted to announce details of this year’s Friday Fabric Shopping Trip!

Here’s the scoop:

We’re departing The Menzies Hotel on Carrington St, Sydney at 12pm sharp*. SHARP, I tell you! **

First stop will be The Remnant Warehouse at Alexandria. This is a fabulous shop, and you can read more about it here!

From there we’ll be heading to the exciting, new (and oh so pretty!) Calico and Ivy shop in Balmain. It’s only just opened, and from all reports, it’s a cracker of a shop and we’re all quite excited in Sydney about having it in our midst.

After that, we’ll be off to the Prints Charming studio in Annandale. You’ll have a quick visit here in the shop (opening especially for us!), to make some purchases, before the Friday Fabric Shopping Trip concludes at 4:30pm.

From here you’ll have three options:

  • join in the Prints Charming Stitching Session which commences at 4:30pm (separate cost, bookings open now, limited numbers (just 4 left) and open only to those who live outside the Sydney Metropolitan area)
  • return to The Menzies Hotel in Carrington St by minibus (no extra cost)
  • make your own transport arrangements at your leisure, and at your own expense.

Cost will be $32 per person and includes mini-bus transfer commencing and finishing at The Menzies Hotel. There is a limit of 24 places on this Shopping Trip.

Payment needs to be made in full with your reservation, and can be made here.

*If you think that your flight arrival time into Sydney on Friday is too late to enable you to leave with us from The Menzies at 12pm, then you may elect to make your own way to the first stop (which is not that far from the airport) at your own expense and join us from there. I will not allow too many to do this, since we don’t really have room on the bus for more than a couple of large bags so please contact me first. Also, you will not receive a reduction in the fee for missing the first leg.

** I will leave without you if you are late. Trust me.

    A quick question: I get in at 10:50 which should just give me enough time to collect my bag and get to the bus in time. The YHA check in time is 2pm so I have nowhere to drop off my bag in the meanwhile. I know a few of us will have similar issues. Do you have any ideas?
    I hope my plane is not delayed either!

    Becky – will they let you drop your bags off at the YHA? My check in isn’t till 2pm either (at the Travelodge) but I checked and I can store my bags there until I’m get back from shopping/stitching etc 🙂
