I'm quite excited about this post because I loooooooove fabric shopping! So here is a mix of local and online fabric shops. Nothing has been sponsored here, I just wanted to share the love.
Oh! Sew is owned by the lovely Rebecca. She opened her shop in Raceview Mill, Broughshane back in April 2019 and I have been hooked on her fabrics ever since! You'll find an array of linens, cottons, jerseys, coating fabrics and more. Becs also stocks a range of Indie patterns and some haberdashery items. If you don't live locally, fear not you can shop online www.ohsew.co.uk and there is always a speedy delivery!
The-Dab-Hand is owned by two sisters Claire and Laura. They source the most beautiful fabrics including linens, jerseys, cottons and coating...and so much more! They run pop-up shops held in Belfast where there are always beautiful fabrics to snap up. They also recently launched their website in 2019, www.the-dab-hand.co.uk.
I have loved this fabric shop since I started sewing. There's always a great range of fabrics to browse and something that will fit whatever project you're working on. When I've been to the Sewing for Pleasure shows in Birmingham, Fabrics Galore is always my first port of call! Some day I would love to visit their shop in London but for now I will browse www.fabricsgalore.co.uk.
I always enjoy reading Pound Fabric's email newsletters, there's always something I am tempted by. There's a great range of fabrics including cottons, jerseys, woolen fabrics and more. As the name suggests there are fabrics priced at just £1 a metre. There are some fabrics that are a little more but all very competitively priced and reduced from their original price. It's always like Christmas Day when my deliveries arrive. Their website is www.poundfabrics.co.uk.
Felicity Fabrics is a reatively new fabric business run by a lovely mum and daughter team. Like all the businesses I've described so far, Felicity Fabrics have such beautiful fabrics on their website. They also stock the handmade Whim Wham buttons that are so pretty and Whiteley scissors! I loved opening my first package beautifully wrapped in a box, tissue paper and a handwritten thank you note. Their website is www.felicityfabrics.co.uk.
Another fabric shop I have come across in recent months is Lamazi Fabrics. They stock the most amazing designer fabrics. I read on their website that Lamazi means beautiful in Georgian. Georgia was a place that was at the heart of Silk Road. A place that was at the heart of Silk Road, a trading route for designer fabrics for hundreds of years. How amazing is this! They also offer free delivery for orders around the UK. Browse all their amazing products on www.lamazifabrics.com.
I remember the first time I went to Craftswoman, I spent 3 hours there! Craftswoman is based in Kilroot Industrial Estate a couple of miles outside Carrickfergus. There is everything you could imagine in this shop from dress fabrics, special occasion and upholstery. They also stock sewing accessories and sewing machines. If you live in Northern Ireland or due to visit I highly recommend a visit.
Mad About Fabrics is based in Duncrue Cresent, Duncrue Industrial Estate, about a 10 minute drive from the of Belfast. I always enjoy visiting here and usually come away with something.They have a huge area in their shop dedicated to curtain and soft furnishing fabrics, perfect if you want something a bit different in your home! There is also a section with dressmaking and craft fabrics, wool and sewing accessories. Upstairs there are even more upholstery fabrics. Honestly worth a visit, who doesn't love a good look in a fabric shop.
Thanks for reading about some of the places I like to shop for fabric. There are others but these are the main shops that I enjoy shopping with!
