I love to support small businesses so I thought I would share some great online sewing shops that you might like too. This is not an advert or a paid promotion, this is entirely my own opinion and I am sharing because I think it is important to spread the word about good businesses. Today I am going to share four of my favourite UK based shops, but there are so many excellent online independent craft and sewing shops that I'm sure I will feature some others in the future.
Sew and Quilt is based in Cornwall and is an excellent online shop where you can find a gorgeous selection of quilting fabric including Liberty Tana Lawn. They also sell some fantastic tools, threads and paper templates in a vast array of shapes and sizes for English Paper Piecing. I really recommend their paper templates as they speed up the epp process immensely. Their customer service is fantastic and they also go to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham each year, so this is a great way to see their products in person. I have signed up to their Block of the Month subscription box for the first time this year and I am so excited about it. I will share details about that in another post.
If you love Liberty fabric as much as I do, another great place to buy it is Alice Caroline. They have so many different designs and even some that are exclusive to them. I've also got one of their wall hanging kits which I haven't made yet but it is beautiful and the instructions are very comprehensive. Their website is so inspiring because it is a cacophony of Liberty patterns and colour. They mainly sell Liberty Tana Lawn but they do often have other Liberty fabrics such as jersey, cord and the Liberty quilting cotton range. You can also find Alice Caroline at the Festival of Quilts each year.
A great place to buy general sewing tools like scissors, embroidery hoops, embroidery threads, kits and felt is Cloud Craft. This is a wonderful online shop and items are posted out very promptly. They have really good quality supplies for all your stitching needs, including lovely fabrics for cross stitch and embroidery. They are very reasonably priced and often have unusual tools like this hexagon magnetic needle minder pictured above, which I absolutely love!
The final shop I want to share with you today is Rose Garden Patchwork. At Rose Garden Patchwork, they sell fabrics and haberdashery sourced from Japan so you can find some really unique items. The zips they sell are of a really excellent quality and I just love the overall style of everything they sell. Their fabrics are bright and colourful and excellent for quilting. Rose Garden Patchwork also sell some patterns designed by them and also some lovely Japanese craft books that are so inspiring. I hope you check out these independent businesses and that you love them as much as I do. What are your favourite online shops? Leave your favourites in the comments below. Happy sewing!
