Are there any fabric shops in Mildura?


My Mum is tagging along on one of Dad's business trips soon and she has a whole day to fill in by herself in Mildura.  She has asked me to  find out if anybody knows if there are any patchwork/fabric/crafty/interesting shops in Mildura to help her fill in her day.  Let me know if you know of any.



Here's a pic of one of Mum's very special miniature quilts, beautifully photographed by my brother last year but carelessly hung upside down by me.  Ooops.

  2. Love the mini quilt - the cactus in the background makes for an interesting sense of scale!

  6. Hi Julie,
    I love your blog, I live in Mildura. There is a fabric/ wool shop as mentioned earlier in Langtree Avenue, just up from the Mall in between Ninth and Tenth streets called "Svetlana's fabrics". There is a Spotlight store and also a Lincraft store along Fifteenth Street. It depends what your mum likes, there is also a nice antique shop further along fifteenth street on the highway called Rose Harvest. Hope this helps.

  8. Great photo and I liked your brothers photos. What an amazing cactus - it makes your mums mini quilt look like a postage stamp.
