Best place for fabric
« on: January 04, 2012, 06:40:26 PM »
As you may know, my eenie monster now has a sewing machine  :o  She is zooming her way through her small fabric stash at a rate of knots, and I've just found out the a local supplier is no longer trading  :(  So, where is the best place online iyo?  More fat quarters than yardage, for that we still have a supplier, although I'm not sure how attractive his fabrics really are for a six year old.  All suggestions gratefully received.  ;D

Abakhans has a branch in Liverpool so I go there rather than buy online- but I do love it! I go to their bargain basement- not sure how the prices compare but worth a look
