i recently picked up some pretty cool fabrics at ikea in richmond.  you can cut however much you likes yourself and then they charge you by weight.  most of them work out between 3-6$ per metre.

there's that shop called dancing queen somewhere too. has anyone ever been there?

if you want smaller quantities you could also try quilting and patchwork shops.

here is another thread with similar discussion: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38791.0

dancing queen is on lennox st, richmond, just off swan st.   Smiley

sydney rd is full of crazy fabric shops, there's a stretch of them from dawson st/glenlyon rd up to blyth st, but i reckon if you followed it all they way up to coburg, you'd find some wild stuff (at least some wild wedding dresses).  just avoid the spotlight there, it's terrible.

Second that, Sydney Road is AWESOME but you can wait for service at Spotlight for an hour.  Try Anne's Fabrics.

I also think Sydney Rd is fabulous for fabric.
There is a little shop on Smith St in Fitzroy near the corner of johnson st which you can get some good fabric from really cheap. While on Smith st check out Lost and Found Market, they sell a lot of vintage fabric.
Also go to Job Warehouse 58 Bourke St in the city. This place is PACKED with fabric and while it can be a bit intimidating it is old school and awesome. If you can't find it a Job Warehouse your in trouble. That said, it's best to go in having a good idea of what you want.

I think they get irritated with you no matter what you do. They don't like you to go around touching things.
I would go with a friend, or maybe have a drink before you go.

They are like the dragons guarding the jewels. ; )

the one in footscray is called brunswick fabrics and they have differents fabfic to what they sell in spotlight and it is REALLY cheap. although they told me they were closing mid july, which it is now so i'd hurry along and have a squiz. the most expensive fabric there was $7 a metre if i remember correctly, and that was for the fancy formal dress fabric. i don't think it's top quality stuff, but is definately worth a look if you're on a budget
