Weekly UK Fabric Shop Update

It’s time for another fabric news – there’s absolutely masses going on this week, as summer draws to a close with lots of sales and it seems that people are starting to get ready for a certain event at the end of the year… Enjoy all the bargaintastic opportunities!

***

The M is for Make sale is still on with more lines added. Because Kate has such good taste (I’m  not just trying to win favour here, I really mean it!) her sale section is always one of the best… Kate also has some fab new fabrics including Bella by Lotta Jansdotter and the lovely Nursery Versery by Heather Ross. An excuse to include some adorable mice:

I’ve also failed to say, up until now, that the new M is for Make website is fantastic!

***

Doughty’s are having a full on clearance sale of Rowan fabrics – there are masses of prints from Amy Butler’s early collections. There’s some great stuff here at brilliant prices.

***

Speaking of Amy Butler, her collection Cameo is continuing to arrive in UK shops. The Quilt Room have put together some very pretty bundles, and this cool, versatile 5″ strip roll:

So, on to the End of Year Event…. there are lots of Christmas fabrics are coming into stock now. Seamstar have opened their Christmas shop. Check out this excellent Ho Ho Ho bundle:

Whilst you’re over there you might want to check out their Offers section – loads of good deals available, particularly if you are starting to sew your Christmas gifts.

One of the sweetest Christmas fabric collections around is Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hoey – you can find the collection in now at The Village Haberdashery.

And if you have Bloomsbury Gardens from Liberty Lifestyle on your wishlist, then you might want to pre-order from VH to take advantage of their 10% discount offer. And, of course, The Village Haberdashery sale is still on.

My Fabric House is another shop with its Christmas section already up and running – there’s lots of very cute stuff in stock – who couldn’t want matryoshka Mary & Jospeh?

Now is a good time to check it out because they are planning a flash sale for 8pm today (26 August) – here are the codes that you need (link takes you to Facebook).

There’s 50% off all Simplicity patterns at Abakahn. I just need to get a dog so I can make one of these:

There’s free P&P at RUCraft for the bank holiday weekend. They also have a fabric offer on – when buying fabrics priced £2.99 or more, you get your first Fat Quarter free. RUCraft are particularly good for Tilda  and Tanya Whelan fabrics, but they also have Denyse Schmidt’s Flea Market Fancy in stock just now.

***

The Dragonfly Summer Sale is also still on. Dragonfly are particularly brilliant for dressmaking and quilting fabrics. Go take a look!

***

There’s a Bank Holiday Bonanza over at Eclectic Maker. There’s a brilliant 20% off all fabrics until midnight on Monday 27 August – you just need to enter the code BONANZA at checkout. I’m wondering if it makes this little baby within my price range….

And (almost) finally (wallet breathes sigh of relief…) Simply Solids are celebrating the launch of their lovely new website with a discount of 10% – you just need to use the code SIM0010 at checkout.

***

Very Berry Fabrics has an offer on too… although the new Liberty quilting fabrics are absolutely gorgeous, there’s nothing quite like the real thing. So, if you want to check them out, any purchase of a fabric pack or bundle from my Liberty fabric shop on Folksy comes with a free Liberty single (9″x12″ piece) from my selection. Here’s one of my mini-bundles, to whet your appetite…

Enjoy your bank holiday Monday, if you are lucky enough to have a break!
