    Hi HP

    I suppose it all depends on what sort of fabric you want and what sort of price your paying at the moment.

      I really like Moda Amy Butler or just any bright funky fabric really.

        Jules at Appletree Crafts would be a good one to speak to. She has just placed an order for the US for some lovely VW camper van material and might be able to point you in the right direction.

        Hope this helps.

          I'm Waiting...

          ...for my reprodepot order. No idea whether or not it'll get knobbled for import tax. Sometimes C&E are very random...

          I mostly buy my fabrics from US, so I can't recommend any UK suppliers. You might get canvas type fabrics at Dunelm Mills.

              Just looked up fabricland. They do have a website http://www.fabricland.co.uk but I'll warn you - it's not the best in the world! It'll give you a rough idea of what they have though.

                Hi Joanne, I guess it depends on what you are looking for & how much, we sell a lot of Moda / Lecien ranges and we ship in from the Netherlands & the U.S. are you looking for wholesale?

                      it should depend on the quantity and what kinds of material you want to buy,most of our clients often buy 600 x 300D/PVC for the bag's material and canvas also.
                      about the Kid's clothing,they like select pure cotton fabric material.
                      relate to the price you said which is the best,import or buy in Uk, yes, the price is a little different for these two choice, buy Uk, if in a factory,maybe good price, if buy from agent or trade company,it is higher,because many of them also import from other country.in this situation, i suggest you import them directly will be better price.even include custom taxes.
