Sew let’s shop: My favourite online sewing shops.

Let’s face it, we are truly lucky to have so many fabulous online fabric shops these days, offering us loads of gorgeous fabrics.

In this blog post, I’d thought I should share my top 5 with you and why they are my favourite.  By the way, they are in no particular order because they are all splendid in their own way!

imgres-1Fabric Godmother’s website for me is well laid out for me, making fabric easy (or too easy in my case) to find.  It’s clean and crisp, just how I like websites.  I’ve bought a couple of pieces of fabric and have been very happy with them.  I still have them in my stash and this is a running theme – 2017 has to shake me up to make them into beautiful garments!

For me, Guthrie & Ghani has a lovely style.  I spend hours browsing the fabrics on the website.  Just recently I bought some lovely cotton with hot air balloons, which I’m looking into making a nice dress for summer with. Whilst writing this post up, I had a quick browse and spotted some gorgeous striped jersey (perfect for a coco) but will have wait until pay day as all my fabric allowance is used up!

It’s name speaks volumes.  Boy, does this website have loads to choose from!  On more than one occasion I’ve bought something special.  Yes, yet again it’s still in the fabric stash but I have an idea for each piece bought!  I bought my Houndstooth jersey from here and it’s going to be perfect for a dress!

An emporium not by half.  Still good quality fabric at a good price too.  I’ve managed to get a couple of bargains in the sale too, which I’m pretty chuffed about. But their site sometimes goes all weird on me and doesn’t load which is annoying!  Still,l the fabric is pretty good for what you pay for 😀

Oooooh! I love scrolling over and seeing what Lisa and her team have chosen in the New section fabric wise.  There’s just so much gorgeous lovely fabric to choose from!  I’ve recently joined the PDF club too.  It’s only a £5 for the whole year, with that you get to choose a free PDF and first to know of any new PDFs released!  I adore her patterns too – yes I still have to make the ones I have – now that’s a surprise (NOT!).

Okay I know I’ve gone over my top 5 but this lovely shop can give the others a run for their money.  Sewn, which is based in Bristol has a beautiful website of a wonderful collection of fabric.  I just hope I get the chance to go and visit someday!  Bought some fabric too, which was in the sale (OOOOOPS)!

I found out about the textile centre via Lizzie B on her YT channel.  I have to go and check it out since she showed off her jersey for her TATB Coco Dress (YES, I bought yet more fabric)  Also since this is new to me I thought I would share this one with you too.  Really good quality fabrics and the price isn’t bad either!

So there you go, my top 5 (and more) online shops for fabric.  I’m going to be sharing my fabrics that I’ve recently bought in a vlog (yes I said vlog). It will probably be the second vlog as I’m editing my first vlog which is to released very soon!  My vlog channel is SEW DO IT EMMA’s VLOG – be sure to subscribe if you don’t want to miss any vlogs!

  1. I’m a newbie to the sewing community and I want to stock up on fabric for all the projects I’m enthusiastically planning to start. This list was so helpful. I’m now going to spend the rest of my afternoon purchasing fabric and supplies online. My heart is filled with deep joy and I have you to thank.
