Riley Blake Road Trip

On Monday I went to visit the warehouse of the Australian Riley Blake distributor. I was joined by Pauline from Funky Friends Factory and Steph from Cake Patterns.  

The warehouse held row upon row of Riley Blake fabric, Pauline was very excited and was ready to take home one of everything, especially the spools of ribbons. 
Like a kid in a candy store :)
Steph was a lot more contained in her excitement but I think she looks a bit overwhelmed by the sheer amount of fabric.
She was very excited by the Riley Blake range of Jersey Knits, which are a very high quality and great to sew with. Read about Steph's Riley Blake 1" red striped Tiramisu here.

Lots and Lots of Cotton fabric
Rolls of brightly coloured trims
We got to see advanced yardage of some of the new ranges due out next year as well as behind the scenes at the warehouse where kits are cut and packaged.

We have heaps of exciting new Riley Blake fabric on order for next year, I can't wait to show it all to you :) There are a few items due to go up on the web store this week. Make sure you keep an eye out on our new products page.

  1. "Well, I know you can be overwhelmed and I know you can be underwhelmed, but what if you're just whelmed?"

    It was a good day Kylie, thanks for the ride! Can't wait to get some serious sample sewing in...

    1. You look pretty stunned in that first pic :) maybe you are just hungry though :) It was a fun day.

    2. I had one of those glare headaches by the time we were in the warehouse... Did you see Pauline's photos of you? I'm bombing all of them... bwaaahahaaa..

    3. No I haven't see her photos yet. It was a pretty bright and sunny day an the shed was pretty warm inside.
