Where do mums buy their material and patterns for sewing projects? I have purchased them from Lincraft , but would like some other suggestions for shops with good quality material and patterns. Would love your help?

  • I go to Spotlight because it’s close to where I live.



  • Spotlight and Lincraft are good . Some bargain shops sell them as well .



  • i go to spotlight but my town is full of little craft shops. probably the most common shop here besides food and petrol.



  • Thanks ozstarlett – would not have thought of an op shop for patterns – will look today – brilliant idea! :)



  • I was in my local op shop yesterday and they had heaps of patterns and material remnants. Spotlight of course has patterns and material – also see if there are any little boutique sewing shops around your area.



  • I purchase my material from spotlight. I find them reasonably priced and everything is so easy to find in their stores



  • Thanks mom165081 – will check out the patchwork shops. :)



  • Places that are patchwork specialty shops have a wonderful variety of materials. They also carry clothing patterns and materials too.



  • Thanks mom81879 for your answer – I have bought material from Lincraft and Spotlight on other occasions, but I am looking for some stores that may have different materials, something a little different and unusual.



  • We have a store called Spotlight, I’m not sure if it’s Australia wide though. They’re great fir material and sewing accessories. Maybe you can check them out online? I think they do Internet orders
