Closing over xmas & looking forward to 2010........

Little Chillies is going on holidays! Woo Hoo! We will be closed down between 18th December and return on the 4th January 2010. Any orders just prior to this date may not be completed until we return to business.

It's been a busy couple of months leading up to xmas and a good start to our new business venture. We are planning on a big 2010 starting with the Markets. We kick off the year with Sisters Market at Brunswick town Hall, in February and will also be present during April 2010, then in St Kilda in December 2010. We will also be present at Magnolia Square and will be applying for Mathilda's market not only in Melbourne, but in Sydney and Brisbane. More details to come.

We are currently finishing up our wholesale order for Angelfish Dragonfly, an online boutique supporting Australian made and designed baby and children clothing/products. Located up in North QLD, if you're a local you may even get to see Angelfish Dragonfly displaying some of their products at the Townsville Strand Night Market on Friday 4th December. If not, check out the boutique online:

Good work Liz for sewing until you drop (literally) to get through our recent orders. Serious consideration to full time sewing for Little Chillies in 2010................. :-)

A sample taste of the boys fabrics and collection.......

We are busily working on wholesale orders from the girls collection at present (exciting stuff!), so the boys collection is ever so slowly getting there. Something tells me we may have to employ an extra seamstress! Anyone know someone?! ;-)

Our boy's fabric bolts have finally arrived and we are putting together a sample run before we have our photo shoot complete and are ready for sale. I was completely obsessed with a designer of French influenced fabrics and have been waiting patiently for months until they were finally released at the end of October. The following are some sample fabrics from our boys collection. With the exception of our blue strips, our colour palette is of earthy tones and French influence, and include a mix of cottons, and light weight cotton/linen blends.

The following fabric is by far my favourite! Only a glimpse is aloud at these boys overalls and little sneakers, made using a light cotton and linen blend fabric. These newborn shoes are missing their eyelets and laces, but it gives you an idea of the style we are making.........

Very soon, we will have boys products for viewing on the website gallery. I can't wait. Hopefully they will get a similar response to the girls range!?

Until next time,
Au revoir.

We have to thank everyone for their fabulous responses and such positive feedback following advertising on Mum's Grapevine. Thanks also to Jemma from Handmade Kids for her kind words and introducing Little Chillies on her website! Check it out on.....

We are getting close to releasing the boys summer line. We will post up some pictures of our fabric range soon.

....think cotton and Linen blends, overalls, 3/4 pants, shirts, with matching hats and shoes.
