Anyone know where to source Polyester Swiss Voile in Adelaide? I've called 2 Spotlight stores and both claim not to have it (except in cotton) and went into one of those stores to look for myself - found quite a lot of material in the curtain section that looked like what I've seen here on the forums (shiny/porous etc) but the tags made no mention of Voile........

Evening Einnebcj,
You can definitely get it at spotlight. I can't give you the exact codes, but it's in the curtain section and is polyester. I saw it at the Modbury store when I was getting some coarser stuff for the Braumeister system I'm building. I currently BIAB and got the proper stuff your after from Spotlight a couple of years back.

Good luck on your search.

The staff at Spotlight are your typical megastore staff - they'd rather say "we don't have that" than say "I'm not sure if we have that" because they are on shit wages and, well, are working in Spotlight.

Go in there and kick up a shitstorm. Insist that their prettiest 19 year old store assistant see to you RIGHT NOW because you have some GORGEOUS ladies to dress and you MUST HAVE some Ivory Swiss Voile ... DHAAAAAARLINGS.

Nah mate, it's in the curtain section. Don't listen to the staff they're idiots.

BTW - someone posted the label here a while back. Anyone know where that image is? The search function is like finding voile at spotlight.

Damn - that was wicked fast.

The lesson we have all learned here in this thread is it's better to ask than search.

Schweeeeet.

Thanks bookworm. I live up in the Hills and don't get down your way too often. I'll give Spotlight another go and if I have no luck Ill be in contact!
Thanks to all for the help.

Hey Chris, I got mine from spotlight mt barker. IIRC it was in the fabric section on the wall closest to the door on the LHS around waist height.
It may have moved since then and my memory may be a little off but they do have it.

Cheers

Robbo
