Hi sewing friends,
I’m about to move to Sydney from Cape Town, South Africa for a working stint of a few years.
Given the cost to ship things around the world, it’s looking like I will sadly not be bringing my sewing machine or fabric stash (I’m trying to pre-cut some patterns to send to myself!). in order to stay sane, I will HAVE to solve this problem when I get there.
Any ideas on where I can get a second hand sewing machine, or even rent one for a while? Or does anyone have a dusty old girl sitting in a cupboard that needs some love and a good clean and oil?
Also where are the best places to look for fabrics and bits and pieces?
I’ll be working in Milson’s Point – still not sure where we’ll be living.
I’m excited for this new chapter but it’s all quite overwhelming!
