Fabric Stores online

So where do you find all our gorgeous fabrics? A question we get asked all the time, and to be honest, whilst we have a few favourite spots, it's often about grabbing something you love when you see it (yes - building the infinite "stash") - because if you love the fabric, and "just the right pattern" comes along...it will be a match made in Heaven. However, there are times when I look at my stash in horror and wonder if we could co-exist post an earthquake...and warn myself that some sort of restraint is advisable.  I do think however, there are worse habits, and if there existed a FSA ("Fabric Stashers' Anonymous") - I am still not sure I'd want to be rehabilitated.

The following is a small, but hopefully growing list of stores that sell online mainly in NZ. We are hoping to expand this list over time, to add more stores around the globe. As new patterns are released we are also hoping to direct you to stores where our fabric was sourced, and/or to those that have a good supply of recommended fabric.
If you have a favourite fabric store you'd love to share, please leave us a comment on this blog with the name of the store, it's website address (URL), and why you love it. We'll do our best to check them out and update this list. It's would be great if you could also note if a particular store specializes in anything.

 Eventually we'd like you to be able to review and rate the stores you have used to help others make purchasing decisions based on service, selection, price points and delivery. But we'll roll with this list for now and update it as we receive feedback - and as time allows.
