This morning I am going to share with you just a few of my staple fabric shops. I live in (relatively) rural Devon and find that I need to buy most of my fabrics on-line, and these are the sites that I find really useful.
I have other favourite fabric stores where I really love the fabrics, but they are expensive (charging by the 'fat' quarter ) and therefore not that great for learning to make clothes. I will share those with you some other time.
So, here are my staples .......
http://www.shaukat.co.uk/ brilliant for liberty fabrics, almost half the price of the Liberty fabric store.
http://www.myfabrics.co.uk excellent for cheaper fabrics, I buy muslin making fabrics here for around £2 per meter for a cotton. I bought a slate grey polka dot batik for my crepe dress, it was like £7 per meter. Bob on.
http://www.macculloch-wallis.co.uk/ this is brilliant for fabric, but the notions, ahhhh the notions.... (plus if its good enough for Gok, its good enough for me !)
http://www.emmaonesock.com this site is not based in the UK, but they sell lovely designer fabrics by the yard, sometimes not too expensive. And they deliver to the UK.
I hope you find this useful, I really found it a struggle to find good on-line fabric stores, so I wanted to share this with you.
