Crafty Mamas is the creation of, Lisa! A one person operation, born out of love for sewing for four children, and a serious lack of quality, trendy fabrics and patterns here in Australia.
Crafty Mamas is now in it’s 6th year of being having started out as a fabulously friendly crafty forum. Lisa tells us that not long after her much loved Ottobre Design mag was no longer available in Australia so she contacted the mag direct- and the rest is history. Crafty Mamas is the Australian wholesale agent for some amazing European brands like Ottobre Design, Stenzo fabrics, Farbenmix and Studio Tantrum patterns. They also wholesale to WAHMs and also to other retailers.
In the Crafty Mamas Retail shop you can find supplies to make your heart sing. Beautiful fabrics from around the world- with a special eye towards eco friendly items aimed at the littlies.
Knits from Sweden, Norway, Germany, Holland and the Us. Renowned HILCO of Germany and Stenzo of Holland fabrics. Inspiring patterns from local designers and overseas, ribbons and other trims…everything you need to create your own beautiful projects.
Their friendly forum is a wonderful resource for those just starting out, or looking for like minded friends. You never sew alone at Crafty Mamas!
It is certainly hard to pick only a few items to show you, so I think you really need to do yourself a favour and head on over to Crafty Mamas yourself for your own discovery journey. I do however totally love these Cinderella Zwergen Mode Patterns – some really funky designs, just ready for winter. That is one of the joys of Crafty Mamas, they have a unique selection of patterns, products and fabrics that you are unlikely to find elsewhere.
