Cherie Mc Rae from Ruffles Fabrics and Curtains has a fabulous eye for Home Decor, and a love of things French, so will be working with the main theme of a vintage “French Drapery” for her space in the Main Hall at the Art of Elegance Fair.  Add to this her vast knowledge of sewing, Makes, fabrics, lace, haberdashery and great eye for detail, and you have a “must visit” trader.   Beautiful colour schemes are represented in high quality brands and fabrics, sourced locally and from overseas trends.  Her store in High Street Maryborough is a delight to visit, with many reasons to linger.  There is a home decor section, where Cherie gives advice on window treatments and accessories, how to get the look of a particular style, with lots of colour swatches to choose from.  Great display ideas are demonstrated to stimulate any home decor plan.  Sewing culture is another section, with a large range of fabrics to choose from, threads and buttons and beautiful trims to mix and match, as well as matching knitting bags and sewing boxes to keep every project  in order.   Advice is given on dressmaking plans, with pattern books to browse through, and Makes books to get ideas.  The current Vogue Vintage pattern range is out now, so creating original retro clothing is easier than ever.   Evening wear fabrics, patterns, with accessories to match, such as Venetian Carnivale Masks, provide the individual look wanted for a special event.   Along with the Deco “French Drapery” theme, which we will share more about soon, there is everything at Ruffles to suit the discerning decorator and maker.  Historically, the country ladies made sure to get their latest fashions from the Paris Journals, no matter how remote their location was!  Don’t miss Ruffles’ trading space in the Main Hall at the Art of Elegance Fair.
