I'd like to make myself some bits for summer but dont know where to start. No shops locally so id like to find some places online.

fabricrehab.co.uk this place has gorgeous fabrics but expensive!

Try http://www.raystitch.co.uk and http://www.sewbox.co.uk, http://dittofabrics.co.uk are good online shops. http://www.clothkits.co.uk is great too, but more kits than fabrics.

Oh orangepudding you have done a very bad thing to my bank balance... blush

Sorry! What did you buy?

Ohh patchwork I looked at Ditto last week, some really nice fabrics - have you used them are they ok.

Will have a mooch at the others too - thanks so much, need to brush the dust off my sewing machine!

Do have a look at fabricland as rockin says, but do not be put off by their awwwwwwwful website! Truly hideous (but they're clearly not wasting money on it grin)

rockinhippy Wed 27-Feb-13 09:39:20

Oh god yes, it's got to be the worst website I've ever seen flubba, gives me a headache just looking at it [ confused* thankfully we've got a shop here, or I'd probably never get past the front page & buy anything grin - I do love the shop though & have often found stuff in there, that they are also selling in Ditto at double the price, so its always my first port of call

LOL I know and have used fabricland, they have a couple of branches in places I visit occasionally. Agree their website is apalling and, at the risk of sounding grouchy, the staff often seem more interested in each other than their customers...but, if there is a bargain to be had, I will look again grin

Abakhan is often mentioned on these kind of threads.

I've also had some great fabric from assorted eBay sellers.

The village haberdashery have some swoonsome fabrics.

This thread could cost me a lot of money.
