Question Asked:

Hi, I have just started getting into sewing and am really loving it. I have collected a few bundles of fabric remnants from various places on the internet. And that has been fun to play with.

But does anyone know where I can find some more designer or sophisticated fabrics? Of course, also at a discounted price, I am really on a budget.

The fabrics I really like are always so expensive, but I am thinking there must be remnants out there somewhere. Or maybe they just get snapped up really quick.

Does anyone have any ideas on where to start looking at least? I did have a thought, it would be good if there was a group where we could swap fabrics, I have quite a few pieces now I don't think I'm going to use.

Thanks in advance
Jane

Hi, have you tried Ebay? In the UK we have a thing called Freecycle where people often just offer things for free they want to get rid off. I once got a whole load of fabrics from there. But unfortuantely nothing was that expensive looking :)

Hi, I tell you the best way is to befriend an interior designer. My friend does interior design and she always has access to loads of amazing fabrics and often, she just gives them away to me. She always has offcuts from her work and also knows loads of professional sewers, so there is always something she can get for me. Anyway thought I'd just mention it.
