GJs Fabric - Fairfield

Yes, that's right Fairfield - not Brunswick!

I met Georgina when she had her first tiny shop outside Barclay Square Shopping Centre when Quilt fabric was barely heard of and she used to ring me when the new fabrics arrived.

 I have seen her move down the street to Sydney Road and then again to Lygon Street Brunswick where the shop grew and took over all 3 floors of the building which was across the road from the best Nando's in town and a little Greek Restaurant called "Hellenic Republic".*

And now they have moved again -
This time to Fairfield.
Alas there is no tramline outside, and I am yet to discover any good Coffee in the area, but the neighbours are some of Melbourne's best factory outlets you can visit.

Once you turn in to Steane Street it is hard to miss this newly built showroom with onsite parking.

Don't be dismayed by the small display of dance fabric in the reception area - Once you venture past the rolls of batting and through the doorway you will be in awe of  "The Great Wall of Fabric".
4 shelves high and the full length of the factory floor and then you can meander back to the cutting counter through freestanding shelves packed with specialist ranges like Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler and French General.

I wish Georgina and her team all the best in their new premises and look forward to hearing of special events and classes in the upstairs studio.
