I’ve been told that buying fabric in Sydney these days isn’t what it used to be like with many of the lovely shops now closed due to the changing market we live in and the use of the internet to purchase items so much cheaper. In saying this there are still some great shops around that I am sussing out. Below is a list of a few I’ve found so far and links to their websites. I’ll keep adding to this as I go and feel free to let me know of any little gems you have found and I can check them out and add them to my list.
