Happy Saturday !!

Hello there,

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 .......  brilliant for liberty fabrics, almost half the price of the Liberty fabric store.  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.  this is brilliant for fabric, but the notions, ahhhh the notions....  (plus if its good enough for Gok, its good enough for me !)   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.
