  2. Hi, I found your site while looking for somewhere to buy plain Moda fabrics. Would you consider listing my website in your buying guide? Sewwhoareyou.co.uk is an online haberdashery, specialising in bag making supplies. I am also on Folksy and Etsy but my website has the most comprehensive catalogue of everything I supply.

    Many thanks,

    Hello there

    I’ve been learning to sew for a while now and I’m more focused on home decor but love trying to make kids clothes too. I love Amy butler, Riley Blake etc but I’m buying the odd over priced fq here or a stingy metre there and would love to buy my own rolls or bolts because I know I’d use it all. Would anyone know if your standard ‘woman on the street’ can buy direct or if you have to be a business. Where does it come from?

    Hi! My eleven year old sone wants me to make him a shirt with vintage/retro type cars on. I am having trouble finding a fabric as all the prints I have seen tend to have large prints on and it needs to be quite a small print. I wondered if you had any idea where I would be able to get a fabric like this. Thanks!

    Hi, I’m new to quilting and getting confused about some cotton being ok and other fabric not up to standard. Where do I start? Are fat quarter bundles always up to standard and charm packs etc? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    Don’t suppose you know of any wholesalers in the North West with modern patterned cotton for crafts like bunting etc. Really struggling to find anywhere with modern designs.

      Whaleys in Uk is a great source and worth looking at.
      http://www.whaleys-bradford.ltd.uk/ and
      they may well do you a deal price for so much!
      Having said that Id imagine youd get a good deal from an overseas trader surely? perhaps look on Ebay for overseas sellers and email them for a quote?
      But check their feedback scores so you have an idea if they are reputable!
      Ive bought silk pieces and offcuts from both China and japan and been totally satisfied by the transactions must admit.
