Where it's Christmas all year round



From our yule house to yours: Happy Holidays!

Regular programming will resume January 9 or so, after we return from an as-yet unplanned roadtrip to Sydney. I'm looking forward to visiting Kinokuniya, Paper Couture and Cloth. Please let me know if you have any must-do suggestions of a typographic, knitterly or flea-marketing nature north of the border.

Thank you for visiting girlprinter (Show & Tell) this year. Starting a blog was one of the items on my 2005 To Do List. I haven't learned Portuguese or read Moby Dick or mastered crochet, but I messed with the Blogger template and made friends in the process. That was more than I bargained for, and something for which I'm most grateful.

See you in the New Year!

Maybe I'm too late, but The Button Shop on King Street in Newtown is a must go to place, as is the ribbon shop slightly further down (both are at the southern end of King Street, alongside Station Street). On Commonwealth Street Surry Hills is a ribbon/button shop by Tessuti who import fabric and sell designer left over rolls. You can go to Tessuti in the City as well, on Pitt Street mall for fabric. Email me if you want more info and address specifics!

Hope you have a fabulous road trip, and I'm looking forward to seeing what resolutions you come up with for next year!
Alison's mentioned all the places I would have mentioned above- there aren't really any yarn places to speak of up there that I've ever heard about, but have fun in the japanese book store!

Oooh! I'm so jealous. I didn't get to go to Australia this year, (my mother's family is all over there, and some primary school friends.) Am stuck here in snowy, cold Ithaca NY USA.
There's a great map store on Liverpool St- shop 3, ground floor, 175 liverpool St- that is just delightful to browse around in. I know that's not quite what you asked for, but with your interest in printwork you might like some of the art books in there.
Take a deep breath of ocean air for me!

Hope you have (are having) fun in Sydney! Di is right, there are no yarn shops here to speak of, but if you're in Newtown anyway checking out the ribbon and button shops, you could mosey up to the north end of King Street to see one of Sydney's old yarn fixtures, Champion Textiles. (between the intersections of Missenden Rd and Carillion Ave). They often have really good sales in the 'off season'.
