One of the most common questions I get on social media and via email is about where to source beautiful fabrics like the ones I use for Cotton & Flax. I’ve been lucky to live in cities that had vibrant craft and sewing communities, and so I’ve been able to visit lots of great fabric shops. Today I’m going to give you the scoop on my favorites, including a list of my all-time favorite fabric stores.
I’ve compiled a useful list of my favorite fabric stores, as well as some online resources for high-quality fabrics and sewing supplies. Most of these shops stock a wide selection of fabrics and notions, plus: they often have amazing workshops and tutorials! While these aren’t places I go to buy wholesale fabrics, these shops are fantastic if you’d like to do some personal sewing projects, or create something beautiful for your home.
