Sourcing Your Fabrics

Whether you are new to creative craft projects or a seasoned pro, it's tricky to know exactly where to get your materials from. You have several options; firstly you can go into the nearest craft shop and see if they have what you need, but you may be left disappointed since there is no way of knowing until you get there whether they have your choice in stock. You could try an alternative though:buy fabrics online! This is a great option as it gives you the chance to see in advance what fabrics are available, sometimes you get a description of the item, such as any unique qualities which might make it more difficult to sew with - and you can often see what is in stock! The only downside of buying fabrics online is that you cannot get the chance to feel the material before you buy it. This is sometimes overcome if companies allow you to order samples of each material.
