About Us

Before we tell you about us, we'd like you to know that our store is all about you, not about us!    Without you, our valued customers since January 2014, there would be no store!  We have listened, and have created the safe, user friendly online store that so many of you asked for!  

You asked for an extensive range of your favourite fabric brands for a reasonable price, and we have delivered.  Once we've acquired an extensive selection of each brand, one at a time, we'll move onto another of the brands you've asked for.  We ask for your patience as we do this.

We also carry some other sewing necessities such as machine needles, thread, zippers,  patterns, etc.   This Winter we will be building up our supply of prestige knitting and crochet yarns (Noro and Debbie Bliss) and related supplies.

You asked for buyer rewards and we have listened! With each order you will receive  a Repeat Buyer discount code that can be used within our store for your next purchase.

Thank you.....your dream made our dream possible!


Now....about us.....

We are a family operated home-based business located in beautiful, sub-tropical Queensland, Australia.

Our store has been founded upon our mutual appreciation of art, photography, needlecraft and fine textiles.

After successfully operating our own business in an unrelated industry for over 40 years, we decided to wind down and embark on something new that we could operate from our home. To put our idea to the test we opened stores on the eBay and Etsy websites some time ago, and we now have a solid customer base. We believe the time is right to open our own online store thereby lowering our operational costs so we are able to offer you products for a more reasonable price.

We have a special interest in textiles designed by Australian Aboriginal Artists and have an extensive collection of these very beautiful fabrics.

As well as the Aboriginal Art Fabrics, we offer other textiles designed by Australian artists, and other prestige fabrics such as Liberty Art Fabric's Tana Lawn, Westminster Fabrics (Rowan), namely Kaffe Fassett, sundry Japanese Fabrics, Linen & Linen/Cotton Blends, Quilters Pre-Cuts, Quilters Solids, etc.  We will be adding more of your favourite brands over time.

Tuppy is short for tuppence, a 'pet' or nickname, and term of endearment popularly used by early Australian families for their daughters. One of the partners in our business was affectionately called Tuppy by her father when she was a child. The store has been named in memory of a man who encouraged his daughters to strive for excellence in all of their endeavours and to never be afraid follow their dreams.
