I am always asked "where can I find fabric shops?" Well, as I travel around the country I find some wonderful fabric shops... so I though I would make a list.... and then you can visit next time you are in the area.....they are not in any particular order..

(Please double check opening times and locations before you travel... I never know if these shops have moved premises).
