Sorry Folks!


It was all a bit of a last minute rush but we managed to move all our sewing, screen printing and other assorted knick knacks to our new shop space.

You can now find us at 412 Parramatta Road Petersham 2049.

It will however take us a couple of weeks to get the shop to a functional point but we’ll keep you updated through the website, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.

There’s much work to be done but we are confident we can have things up and running within a months time.

We’re excited about all the wonderful new products and equipment we’ll be bringing to the new space and can’t wait to open our doors and share it all with you.

If you need to get in contact with us, simply send us an email and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.

1 Year Old Today!

Happy Birthday Shop!


Happy Birthday, Shop! A year ago today, Bobbin and Ink opened for business. Since then we’ve seen so many great faces, sewing projects and print pieces pass through our door.

Thanks so much for the warm support we’ve had from pretty much everyone we’ve met. Thanks to the friends, family, shop suppliers, wholesale suppliers, class participants, event attendees, Print and Bobbin club members and all other customers who’ve made our acquaintance.

It’s been fun so far, and we hope it’ll stay that way. Look forward to big things for us in 2014!
