Fabric Shops I love


I just thought I’d make a little list of my favourite fabric retailers, for reference. I now have a fairly extensive fabric collection, thanks to these wonderful shops!

Fabricworm  – lovely US-based store, very reasonable shipping and easy to use. This is my preferred shop for importing from the US, mostly because of the huge range of fabric and fast service.

Fabric.com – US based store, vast array of fabric of all kinds (not just quilting weight). They sometimes have discount codes so its always worth checking Retailmenot or other coupon sites before buying. I do tend to get stung by customs with this company though! One note though – I was once mistakenly sent the wrong size of a pattern, they sent me the correct size for free and told me to keep the other one!

Misformake – UK based site, smallish range but all to-die-for fabrics including Nani Iro and Kokka. She also has a great selection of Japanese pattern magazines too.

Raystitch – wonderful stylish UK-based website, selling fabrics and other lovely haberdashery goods (including Dottie Angel’s book!). The London shop looks amazing too, I’m hoping to pay a visit there soon.

Beyond Fabrics – my ‘local’ in Columbia Road, London. They often have discount codes and sell mostly Moda and vintage-y prints, as well as useful buttons, ribbons, etc.

Eternal Maker  – This is my favourite stall at the Knitting and Stitch show at Alexandra Palace, they always have a very tempting selection of Japanese prints, and stock Oliver and S patterns which I love.

Volksfaden – German website, with beautiful graphics using their fabrics (that rhymes!). Good range of fabrics and organic cottons.

Matatabi – beautiful Japanese prints, mostly Kokka and Nani Iro, at reasonable prices. Based in Japan.

Every so often, I wean myself off yarn stashing and end up on these sites looking at new fabric collections! There are some gorgeous new ones that I have my eye on, and I’ll be posting a regular feature on these soon.

  1. Fabric worm is great! My local shop Harts is pretty good. I envy more urban dwellers and your proximity to fabulous shops.
