Do any of the Australian posters know if I can get Marfy patterns in Oz?

I understand that they seem to be affiliated with Vogue but when I rang the
fabric shop that I know stocks Vogue patterns, they knew nothing about them
and thus couldn't get one for me.

The pattern I'm interested in is:
Marfy 0493

I found this.  Don't know if it is of any use.  Click on 'our retailers
around the world'.  It says their magazine is on our newstands - maybe in
Borders.  Doesn't seem like the patterns are here.  Maybe email them?

I only have dial up so waiting for all the graphics to come up isn't too
good, but I did notice they seem to have distinct catalogues for each year.
Maybe this coat is from a previous year?

I had never heard of them before.

Check out the Vogue pattern site; they have Marfy patterns there and I
believe you can order directly from the website, at least we can in the USA.

I searched the Marfy site,
but could not find that pattern number, or a coat pattern
which resembles the one in your link.

A disclaimer on the site says :

If you can locate the pattern #, I'm sure someone in the U.S
would be happy to purchase it for you and mail it to

Are you aware of this disclaimer?:

Beverly, whose personal inclination would be to adapt a
pattern from one of the big 3.

Thank you Beverly for all your help.  No I hadn't seen the disclaimer, but
none of those things would scare me anyway.  I can manage to deal with all
of those supposed 'shortcomings'.  Burda never scared me before they added

Yes, I think it wouldn't be a hard one to draft up but I thought if they did
sell in Oz, I'd support them.  We are losing too many sewing related
resources in this country so I thought doing a knock off copy would be a
last resort.

G'day FarmI

Have you posted a 'wanted' ad in SewItsForSale group?  I buy lots of my
patterns through there and even with postage Downunder they are still
cheaper than patterns in fabric stores. /

Ebay is another option.  Hope you find what you want?

 I just did a quick search (marfy/ regional communities) of the
PatternReview message boards and someone in Aus emailed Marfy with the
pattern no. and credit card details. Got the pattern with no problems. As
far as I can see, this is the only way to get the patterns here. The
catalogues are available in Borders.
