where to buy fabric?
where does everyone buy their fabric? i have a hobby lobby where i live but thats about all. any suggestions for any online sites that sell fabric that isnt too terribly expensive?
oh, i want to know some sites too!
Most online retailers are like regular brick&mortar stores, in that they have a sale/clearance section all the time. Go back to some of the more expensive sites and check theirs out, you might be surprised what you find!! Also, they quite often do bundles that save you even more. an example of one i came across recently was 4 1m lengths of printed cotton for £7.95 (similar ones were being sold elsewhere on their site @ around £5 each)
i havent used it because it costs to ship to UK but spend over $35 and its free US. they also have loads of offers.
I use ebay, etsy and folksy
i have found some of the most amazing!!!! fake fur on etsy, it was multicoloured and had different lengths all i'd seen in shops was one length normal stuff like red or black or leopard print or bee stripes.
c'mon bindiibabe share your sources ...
While it's only a list of UK-based shops (both online and brick and mortar), I'll add it anyway:
I'm sure many of the sites will ship to the US and I know for sure that Fabric Rehab does. I can also vouch for the fact that they're brilliant, I've ordered from them several times and they have some lovely stuff (and their new website launches soon!)
Hope that helps a little
Thank you - now to drool and build a wish list!
I wasn't being secretive Julie! I was trying to remember! My mum and i were trawling the interweb last time she visited and we were on every wool & fabric site known to womankind.....
We even found one that did a clearance bundle of fancy fibre knitting wool. 2x 10 ball bags in 5 different styles/colours for £10
I mean really! It's like 10p a ball!!! (think it might have been abakhan)
Brittany : another great source is *re-using* old clothes and sheets etc. Either clear out your warbrobe (or those of people close to you!) or hit the charity/thift shops!
Or see if there is a freecycle (or equivilant) in your area
