An icon to close..

by Kate on October 21, 2012

If you live in Australia and are into fabric, you will most likely know of the iconic fabric store in Melbourne, Patchwork on Central Park.

After twenty years, Lynn has decided to wind up the patchwork store and in 2013 will transform the space into another branch of her very successful boutique, Scarlet Jones – you can read all about it here.

Last year, I mentioned my concerns regarding the pressures on both retailers and consumers in todays economic climate, a harsh reality all of us face in one way or another.

I understand the reasons behind Lynn’s decision but was still saddened by the news.

The closure of Patchwork on Central Park means there is one less place in Melbourne to learn the wonderful skill of quilting, a place where I had many good times.

Lynn is slashing the price of all patchwork fabrics (excluding Liberty and Linen). Pop in-store or order online to secure a bargain.
