I want to buy some Christmas themed fabric in cotton/polycotton to make some drawstring gift bags. I will also need ribbon. Does anyone know a reliable supplier of fabric? I won't want loads of any one pattern so it needs to be somewhere that deals in smallish quantities. Thanks.

Have you tried eBay? I usually get my fabric from eBay sellers, I have seen quite a lot of Christmas fabric on there too.

Plug for my local fabric shop - I've had lots of fabric from there and you can specify how much you want so no need to buy loads.

Thank you. I probably won't use Ebay as I am not fond of it. I will take a look at the other site.

Wool warehouse has a good range and a very reputable seller.

Wow! I literally found this section to ask this question!

I second Wool Warehouse and have also used handicraft agnes recently. Very quick delivery and lovely fabric. Dalston Mill and Flamingo Fabrics look good too but I haven't used them yet.

I use Wool Warehouse a lot for fabric and yarn and they have a good range and fast delivery. I've also ordered from Higgs & Higgs and Doughty's recently who also had fast delivery.

The Cheap Shop in Tiptree Essex has a great selection and does on line sales. .
I have used I Want Fabric as well.

Abakhan, Plush Addict, Frumble and Dalton Mills. I recommend all of these for quilting weight cotton and polycotton.

This place is great for ribbon

They do gingham gift bags too so you could buy those and decorate with applique etc which might be cheaper than buying Christmas fabric in bulk to make bags.

I actually ended up taking my DM out for lunch and going somewhere that sells fabric so I have now got some. I was going to buy ribbon but my DM says she has a big box of it at home so I will get that from her next time I see her.

I get mine from Tahim's Drapers, Bombay Fabric Stores, Bright Quilting, and Fiddlesticks Fabrics.

Can't believe no one has mentioned Minerva crafts yet!

I’ve used pound fabrics a fair bit and they are reasonable but postage is costly

I bought some fat quarters on Etsy, lots of Liberty Christmas material on there.

Minervacrafts are very good.

And the village haberdashery too
