Sewing Resources – Fabric Stores

“Finding the perfect fabrics can make or break your project.”

fabric shopping online - where to buy dressmaking fabric - oh sew fearless

I’m originally from the UK and am used to a lot more choice than we have as standard with our stores in New Zealand. This is helped along by my comfort with online shopping and this has transferred to my fabric shopping too.

I browse a wide range of fabric stores in a wide range of countries to find what I am looking for and with an increasing number of even small boutique stores offering international shipping, the fabric shopping world just got a lot bigger and the choices more varied.

The stores listed below are those I have shopped at, or browsed the sites of. All of the sites listed sell online, most offering a sample service and all ship around the world, so no need to be restricted to the choices of your own locale. 

This list isn’t exhaustive – if your favourite store isn’t shown here, drop me a note so I can add it to the page (and my shopping list 😉  ) .
