Welcome to Selvedge House.
We are three creatives who met at a craft show in May, 2009. We instantly realised that we all had a passion for hand printed textiles, modern Australian fabrics, and creating things with distinctive design (also, we make each other laugh). We wanted to share this with the rest of the world, but for now we're starting with Brisbane.
Selvedge House is our idea of the perfect modern crafting shop.
We dream of a place where people can visit and feel inspired as soon as they enter the door. A place of warmth and sharing, of inspiration and installations, of fabric and texture and laughing.
Where beginnners to the contemporary crafting world can feel welcome, and the experienced can enhance their skills, while renewing their crafty love.
Where screen printing workshops help you to make your own custom fabric, that you can then sew into your own garments or accessories in our sewing classes.
Where the fabric shop section is perfectly filled with the texture and warmth of hand crafted textiles and modern designs. And hand drawn patterns. And craft books that are visually intoxicating.
Please join us here, as we work towards this dream. As we find our shop location, our fit-outs and decorate our walls. As we form our classes and make cushions for our sewing chairs. Then, join us in our shop, as we invite you in for coffee and craft, for fabric and laughs, for printing and learning.
This blog is our exploration of inspiration. We welcome any thoughts, comments and ideas of what makes your dream fabric and crafting shop.
