The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle


I'm fairly new at sewing and go to a sewing class which I love!!

I was just wondering where people get patterns and fabrics from to save money.  Ob as I'm new to sewing I don't have the patterns already and I don't have a fabric stash. And in my local area we have one shop that sells fabric but its aimed at upholstery fabrics - Not even a jersey in sight!!!

So I was just wondering what other people did!!!

Thanks for any help in advance!!!

Hi, Sarah, in the UK you can get Burda and Sew magazines from WH Smiths,  both have free patterns in them. Some online sites/forums offer free patterns to print off.

For fabric I usually shop online, not many bargains out there though unlike the states. I really think we're lacking in that department!

It's worth looking in your local Charity shops, Ebay and Etsy too.
