Vintage Fabric – Updating the Website..

Leave a comment

Time for the annual update of Vintage Fabric’s website..

The site has useful and interesting links for anyone keen on fabric, sewing and interiors.   As well as information about us and our blog, it has links to our ebay shop ‘vintage fabric and curtains’, a page showing all the Sanderson fabric we have in stock ( changed frequently), one dedicated to fabric bundles and a fabric of the month page.


Fabric bundles useful for patchwork and crafts, the one below is made up of rare and unusual Laura Ashley cotton pieces.


‘Fabric of the Month’ showcases a favourite or special fabric or textile; the idea is to change the page monthly, though time goes too quickly at times…


A page showing the Sanderson & William Morris fabric we have in stock..


Let’s hope that it can be found on Google and other search engines now..
