The Linen Quest: Superbuzzy


Name: The perfect linen
Purchased from: Superbuzzy
Cost: Medium Weight: $23.95 (USD) per yard; Light Weight: $19.95 (USD) per yard (I bought the medium weight)
Service: Excellent

Rating:
Superbuzzy claim that they have been "searching for the pefect linen to use for our craft projects". I have to agree, I think this is a perfect linen, the texture is lovely and the quality is very good. However it's a shade darker than what I'm looking for. Having said that I do have some new projects floating around in my head that will be perfect for this linen.

Would I buy it again? Yes. Paying for shipping from America isn't ideal but as I only orderd the medium weight linen I will definitely head back to Superbuzzy to try the light weight (which wasn't available at time of purchase) and also to stock up on some fabric and trims. I think it would be fair to say that they have the best range of Japanese fabric online.

From my perspective your blog post is a beautifully timed one - I'm afraid I haven't any wisdom to share but as I was plotting a linen stash purchase I'm coming back to hear from the tried and tested!

Thank you for the review. I don't use much linen because I get very frustrated with it.

Helloooo. I have just ordered some linen from Duckcloth (20% off until the 15th). I am getting a couple of different weights - will let you know what I think when it arrives. I tried to get some from Spoltlight thinking it would be a staple - but NOOOOOO. That's a summer fabric, did you know? Jeepers they're useless.

Yes indeed it is a quest; the holy grail so to speak. Funny I received the same answer at Lincraft too - but upon returning in October (ie summer) could only find a nasty linen blend!? I have lately used Pure Linen [www.purelinen.com.au](based in WA) who occasionally have good discounts and Marina provides lovely personal service. I'd be happy to provide some photos and reviews if you like?
