Charcoal is available from Embroidery Source in Melbourne. Hope this helps. They go back to business on Monday 17th Jan, I think!

I know of a good company that will ship to Australia if that helps at all. It is
I was surprised at their low costs and very speedy service. They are about 2000 miles away from me, but yet, I received a shipment from them on the second business day. I was very impressed with the quality of their merchandise and their prices. When I received my package, it contained a 10% off coupon for my entire next order. I bought a 50 yard roll of water soluble stabilizer, and paid less than half what others were charging for it.
Good luck with finding what you are looking for!

You can buy black interfacing from Lincraft it is the same thing as stabiliser but way cheaper.

(I posted a link here at Cute to an article on Designs by Sick, all about the history of stabilisers, but I could no longer find the article on Sick. You could try searching Cute general for it, it was very informative.)

I have bought black stabiliser from Shopper'srule and ABC in the States.

If you need these links please ask.
hugs n roses, Meganne

Try spotlight - they do sometimes in NZ. Otherwise not is Aust - but designs by sick have it, I've ordered stabiliser from there before - I bought quite a few rolls and even with freight it was cheaper than I can get it in NZ
