  • Cheap fabric supplier

    I have been asked by my daughter to make cushion covers for my granddaughter's school Christmas fare. The trouble is we don't have many fabric shops in this area, Kent. So I am looking for somewhere in the south east that sell cheap but nice fabrics, Laura Ashley and John Lewis have the perfect fabrics but far too expensive for what I need. Does anyone know anywhere I can buy, maybe imperfect or seconds fabric? I don't mind travelling a bit as the end product will be for a good cause

    John Lewis sometimes have a remnant bin where they sell off their display samples in the region of £2 or £3 which are a fair size about a metre in all.

          Great - Bexley and Deptford are about 30 miles away, I'm near Maidstone, so will give them a try.

          The gingham on e-bay, do you think that will OK for cushions?

            If you have a Dunelm Mill near you they have a remnant bin - you might get lucky and find some of the right style of fabric there. Also don't forget you might be able to pick up the odd readymade curtain, ex-display piece or bedding that might be suitable to recycle.

            You can check for Dunelm stores here Dunelm store locator

              Have you got any fetes or bring and buy sales or even charity shops
              they often have odd bits of material for sale

              2metres of John Wilman 'fleurie' which will come in handy for some samples
