Favourite Fabric Shops

As promised, here are some of our favourite fabric shops in London and further afield. Do get in touch with your recommendations.

London:

The Cloth Shop: this small shop on Portobello Road stocks gorgeous natural fabrics including Swedish linens

MacCullock & Wallis: fabulous fabric and haberdashery online and in their London store on Poland Street, W1

The Cloth House: online fabric and haberdashery plus a shop on Berwick Street, W1

Liberty: needs no explanation (but a large wallet perhaps!)

Our locals:

Fabrics Galore: 54 Lavender Hill, SW11: a small shop crammed with fabrics include Liberty.

The Wimbledon Sewing Machine Company, 292-312 Balham High Road, London SW17 7AA
020 8767 4724: this slightly old-fashioned shop (which is more Balham/Tooting than Wimbledon) is packed to the rafters with fabrics and haberdashery

Sew Over It: the lovely sewing café in Clapham and Islington runs sewing courses and stocks fabrics and sewing kits – also available online. Their founder, Lisa Comfort, has also written a blog on her favourite fabric shops in London.
