The fabric is so nice and really nice to work on for future project of mines!!!
I had been tossing up buying silk noil for such a long time and finally took the plunge and it does not disappoint. I'm a huge linen lover and was just nervous about it being silk. Well those nerves were for no reason and this fabric is divine and wonderful to work with. If you're thinking about it, do it! You will not be disappointed!
Order came quickly. The rotary cutters are great for either left or right handed. A but disappointed that the blade it came with was already blunt so glad I ordered replacements as well
I am so pleased with this machine, it’s so easy to use and does an amazing job. I couldn’t have ordered at a worse time, with the flooding happening in Victoria majorly impacting the business, but Trin had the machine on the way in no time.
Silk noil is a lovely fabric to sew and to wear. The fabric drapes very nicely and is good for travel as silk dries quickly and can be worn without ironing.
Arrived in good time, lovely packaging, and the scissors are by far the best I have ever used.
Great sewing machine so glad I bought it.
I purchased this machine a year ago from A+R and after a year of use I can confidently say that this machine is the best! Its pretty quiet and sews very smoothly. I really love how sturdy it feels. It’s definitely a quality machine and well worth the investment. I’m super happy with my purchase! Highly recommend this machine if you’re a regular sewer who’s looking to take the plunge and upgrade to a higher quality more powerful machine.
This is a beautiful 100% cotton with a circular Broderie Anglaise pattern - this is the second piece of this fabric I have purchased from the lovely Trin .
As I live in Qld and have to wear black to work always on the lookout for pure fibres to wear - and this fabric is perfect ,it holds the colour well washes well just love it !
Trin was very helpful with my order when I mistakingly ordered 1 metre of fabric instead of 2 metres. Silk noil is a beautiful fabric to sew and to wear. Thank you.
I bought this gorgeous broderie anglaise to make the puffy sleeves on an Anna Allen Anthea dress. This fabric couldn’t be any more perfect.
My order was delivered quickly and I couldn’t wait to sew this project.
Lovely fabric, been looking for this colour and bought enough for a suit
I LOVE this tencel modal jersey! I have used it to make a drawer full of underwear. It's great for underwear - soft, breathable, comfortable, and washes really well (no pilling or fading).
Recently purchased some black silk noil for a future garment, and some other bits and pieces. I haven’t yet used the fabric, but my first impression is that it has a lovely hand feel and will sew very nicely. It is soft, yet has some texture. It does seem quite thin, which lends itself to being a nice fabric for summer clothing, but I am curious how transparent it will be once sewn up into a garment. The purchase experience was fantastic, and Trin was very prompt to answer my questions - going the extra mile answering my question on a Sunday night!! Thanks A + R.
This is substantial smooth drapey linen that feels and looks luxurious. Washes and dries beautifully. Big five stars here!
This fabric is absolutely gorgeous, it looks and feels divine. I have no idea what I’ll make with it yet, but I knew as soon as I saw it that I definitely had to have it.
Recently purchased some beautiful quality Selvedge Denim 12.5oz Japanese denim. Paired with the jeans hardware kit, delivery was prompt and the communication added a lovely personal touch. Highly recommend and have added A+R Fabrics to my go to company for exclusive fabric purchases.
I received a lovely note along with my order.
The product is perfect and as expected and postage was fast.
Would not hesitate to buy from A&R again.
I can’t get enough of this fabric. My 3rd purchase of Black Merino from A+R. It is so soft and drapey. Lightweight but warm. Perfect for layering.
This is my 2nd Merino purchase from A & R. Won’t be my last!
The quality of this Merino is amazing. I have made cardigans in the navy and black so far and washed and worn many times. No pilling and no sign of fading or losing its shape. I Just cold wash in the machine in a wash bag using wool wash. Now I can make my own Smitten brand type garments for 1/4 of the price of a ready to wear.
Purchased 1.5 metres of black merino jersey to make a mock turtle neck skivvy.
I prewashed the fabric with wool wash in the machine on a wool cycle. The fabric is so soft and beautiful to handle. It sews up easily with minimal rolling on the edges. The 200 gsm weight is an excellent weight but is still light and comfortable.
What I really liked was that it was a fully Australian produced and made product. The wool was also RWS sourced .
The ordering process online was easy and delivery was received promptly .
Speedy delivery, easy to order, and by far they are the nicest scissors I have ever owned. Will be ordering other scissors soon
Every seamstress deserves good scissors. So pleased to buy them from an Australian company. Great service from A&R Fabrics.
The LDH left handed midnight edition scissors are beautiful to use, cut crisply and are a good weight in the hand. The cutting length is just shy of 12cm, the weight of the scissors give good control and continuity throughout the cut.
I purchased these for one of my sewing students and she did not want to put them down, having well crafted left handed scissors is such a treat.
A + R Fabrics were wonderful to purchase from, the order arrived quickly (even over the pond in NZ), was well packaged and the wonderful personalised note adds to the experience. Will definitely be purchasing from A + R Fabrics again.
This lightweight linen is perfect for shirts, skirts, dresses. It is gorgeous in person, with such a unique combination of colors. The fabric is opaque and tightly woven and I'm sure it will soften nicely over time. It has good drape already.
