1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Re: Fabric Shops in London on: February 13, 2007 11:34:52 AM
For felt, fleece, etc for plushies / softies, I found that "Rolls and Rems" in Holloway was very good (21 Seven Sisters Road).  They had a large amount of other fabric in the store, too, of course.

The only things I couldn't get there while assembling a basic starter kit were: some embroidery thread+needles, a sharpie.

Felt squares were priced standard rather than cheap: 45p a square, with a selection of maybe 25 colours.  I think they had some on rolls as well, but can't be sure.  I guess you can call them.

As a newbie, I also found the staff helpful.

Here's their site:

Looks like they have three stores in total:

Lewisham
111 High Street, Lewisham, London, SE13 6AT
Holloway
21 Seven Siters Road, Holloway, London, N7 6AN
Edmonton
9 The Concourse, Edmonton Green, London N9 0TY

A girl in walthamstow market told me about this place when I asked her where to buy felt ( I didn't find any felt anywhere in that market, but didn't look exhaustively).
