When you find the wonderful site that stocks these things please let me know! Sometimes I cannot believe how hard it is to find black aida here!
Ally - Stitchers Corner, in Victoria Park. There's a website, but it's higgledy piggledy. i've bought black aida from there before, they have/had a good range of colours. Or you could just get some textile medium and paint it. I could make you some if you wanted...
You know, if we (aussies) wanted to do a Baker/shada/that odd red scarf,it'd almost be worth all pitching in and buying online/roping in someone from the US to get us some yarns, floss, diamant floss etc. That way we could split the epic shipping costs and throw a little more in for normal parcel post or whatever, for one of us to divide and send out.
I don't have a lincraft in tassie, though i've got a few yarn stores.. and even they don't have the 'right' colours. My Spotlight is getting worse for the wools, imo - they've done a huge shift around, to now have one of those balloon areas... and it's shrunk all the good stuff like floss, aida, wool... all that's gone from a few rows to smooshed into 3 total.
My Kmart has all the eye bleedy colours (seriously, like neons and not much else, it's weird.) and the closest Big W is 2hrs+ away, in Hobart.
