Fabric by the metre?
I need to make a decision on what fabric to use in my craft room....and I am struggling. Fabric ladies, this is not my comfort zone, how do you buy your fabrics please? I would like a main fabric with a few other "wacky contrasts" if you know what I mean. Things that wouldn't normally go together but work well...like a floral and a bold stripe. I have seen plenty I like but I find buying online I can't really see if they will actually work well together. Any advice please? xxxx
love Adele.

I'd do what Sandra says..or I go to A place called Aberkhan In N Wales and In Chester And in Birkenhead...As Its Local to me. I like the one in N wales Best . More Variety and The sell all sorts like wools Crafts and as a lovely cafe too... It All depends on where you live i did get a Huge sampler book years ago from Fred Aldours in Manchester Dont know if they still do them... Some places Charge you for them then you get that back on an order
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.
