Launceston Downpour Tuesday 13-8 –2013

Overnight on Tuesday Launceston received over 50mm of rain.  While that is not a lot in some areas, it is very large for Launceston.  As a result of the local infrastructure unable to handle this volume Esmes Patchwork was flooded with a loss of over300 bolts of fabric. Inventory on the website will be reduced dramatically as a result of this. Please bear with us while we update the site and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need anything.


  1. So Sorry Lillian , came past today and was so surprised to see all the sandbags outside all the shops... Looks like we are in for rain again this weekend.... Hoping all will work out ok for you all ..

  2. Was sorry to hear about the flooding. You say you have lost a lot of bolts of fabric - I was thinking of coming in next week to have a browse - is it worth it now or should I wait a while! All the best.

  3. I am glad that you are having a lovely re-arrangement of your shop and it has not made you too sad.
    Nice carpet.
    I have the Instagram. Now what do I do???!!!

  4. Thanks for your comments girls, despite losing many fabrics there are still many left and new ones are always arriving.
    Cindy - just post a photo and start playing. what's your instagram name?
