Hello dears. I'm looking for good baby flannel. I think you call it flannelette here (I'm a Yank transplant). Soft, brushed cotton for making blankets. John Lewis *occasionally* has a couple, but I've never liked the prints they've had in. The shops in Soho that have silk and stuff don't have it. Anyone seen any anywhere? Thanks a bunch.

Your best bet would probably be quilting shops. There are plenty online, for example:

You might also wanted to look for brushed cotton.

If you're anywhere near north London, there's a shop at the Holloway Road end of Seven Sisters Road that had some (or did last time I went there, which admittedly was a few months back).

Thank you! I appreciate that. Was just visiting home in America and did a stock up, but eventually I'll need more.   Smiley

There's two fabric shops I use- one is off Ridley Road Market in Hackney, the other on Essex Road in Islington. Both stock quite a variety of fabrics. I'm not 100% sure they stock what you're talking about though. Would fleece work too?
I also found another shop in Brixton on Electric Ave. today that seemed pretty well stocked- although again I wasn't on the lookout for flannel.
If you're interested I can give some more precise instructions where they are...
Happy sewing!

Electric Ave??

Yeah, you remember the 80's song, Electric Avenue, by Eddie Grant?

   'I'm going to rock down to
   and then it take me higher...'

Well, it was based on the street in Brixton, it's a pretty main street, you could ask anyone.  If I'm not mistaken, it's called Electric Avenue, as it was the first street in London to have electricity... but that doesn't really sound right- I'm always mixing up historical info.
