    Default Where do you buy your material for sewing?

    I need a local store. A couple friends and I are making purses this week. We have a pattern and are having a girls day to buy the material, have lunch and then sew What is your favourite store? Hyde Park Fabricland? Wonderland Fabricland? Stratford Fabricland? Lens Mills? Place in Hyde Park I think? What do you think?

    I have tried all of them. Lens mills has some really cute stuff that would be perfect for a purse. Have fun!

    There are many nice fabric stores in the area. The quilt shops are a great place to find fabric for purses and bags. One of my favorites would be Marsh's in Coldstream. It is about 15 minutes from the Hyde Park Walmart. She carries a large selection of cotton fabric and a variety of patterns including purses. The fabric is a very good quality. She will be having a sale near the end of July.

    If you are thinking of venturing to Stratford then Ye Olde Fabric Shoppe is another great spot. She carries some really nice prints and a good selection of coordinating fabrics.

    Then there is The Quilt Place in Shakespeare. She also has a nice selection of fabrics. I actually purchased the fabric for my current purse from this store.

    Another store I pop into every once in a while is the new one in Exeter. Their selection is not quite as large as the other stores yet.

    There are a few more stores around.
