UK fabric shops

Nadine just left a new comment on an old post which might get lost in the melee of all the other rubbish I write so I thought it might be worth a little post of its own for any fabric shop owners reading:

Sellers in the UK would benefit from including the Designers' names on their website to make it easier for us to find fabric.  We all love certain designers' lines but can't always find them. I just came across some of Patty Young's Flora and Fauna on Ditto fabrics called "dusky kingfisher dot" or something. Had I found those when I googled Patty Young's fabrics in the UK I would not have bought the whole line from sellers in the US.  So British sellers should keep that in mind. If we can't find these because websites aren't organized very well then they will lose out.

  1. Good point well made I think Nadine, as this is something I have noticed a couple times too. Justine xx
