Apatchy Quilting and Accessories Sandgate Road, Clayfield                          (07) 3256 1410

You need to phone before going to make sure someone is there to help you. I haven’t visited yet

Alla Moda Fabric

The Emporium 14/1000 Fortitude Valley                                                            (07) 3236 2652

Not a quilting shop but if you are into art quilting you may find something different here as they carry a range of designer fabrics with prices to match!

Bargain Box Fabric Store

1136 Beaudesert Road Acacia Ridge                                                                      (07) 3277 8365

Not far from the Quilters and Embroiderers Store in Salisbury. Have heard that it lives up to its name

Fabric Collection

80 Sumners Road Sumner Park                                                                            (07) 3279 6620

Don’t seem to have a separate website and again not a quilting store but do stock cotton

Forever Fabric Clearance

447 Stafford Road Stafford 4053                                                                           (07) 3856 5270

General fabric store but I did get a metre of cotton for $5 which I have used for binding. Prices range from$2 to $10 mostly. The entrance is at the side in Shand Street and it is probably best to phone before you go. Ring the bell if the door is closed. It is not far from Stafford City Shopping Centre

Funky Fabrix                                                                                                             (07) 3122 1271

Family business based in Brisbane – seems to be online only. Stocks organic and natural fabrics. Free postage on orders over $75 – fabrics bundles seem to be good value


288 Edward St, Brisbane                                                                                         0438 882 123

Only open Tues to Sat 10am – 4pm Phone first


Quite a few stores to choose from. General art, craft and fabrics; including quilting cottons from $9 up. They have a loyalty card and it didn’t take long for me to get a $10 voucher to spend in store. I find their ‘coordinating’ fat quarter packs a bit bizarre at times; camouflage, floral and baby prints together! Perhaps I am not very adventurous

On a slip road entered via Moggill road as you approach the roundabout from the shopping centre. Good selection of all your favourite fabrics mainly in the $22 to $24 range. Layer cakes are $50 which is more expensive than most shops that I have been in. A good range of classes offered; recommended by a friend

Peppermint Stitches

133 Sylvan Road Toowong                                                                                        (07) 3161 6606

Billed as the ‘cutest patchwork shop in Brisbane’ I have to agree; but then I am biased as I went to their beginners quilting class which is where I got hooked on quilting. Most fabrics are between $22 and $24. Layer cakes are around $44. A lovely shop with embroidery and cross stitch available too. Often have a half-price sale, minimum 1 metre cut. Check the website for classes with their friendly staff

Sewco Sewing and Patchwork

583-585 Kessels Rd, Macgregor QLD 4109, Australia                                      (07) 3849 4176

A great selection of fabric and sewing machines with many demonstration models for you to try. I purchased my Pfaff at Sewco after trying a few machines there. Have not been to any classes but there are lots to choose from on their website including ones for children


So many branches to choose from; good for quilting and craft materials. Low prices and very good – and very frequent – sales
