Did you ever find anywhere. I haven't seen anything good round here ever. I got some good stuff when I went to LA at new year. So much more choice over there.

Leons in chorlton sometimes has funky stuff and hobby craft in stockport or stockport markets are really good.
The trick with abakhans is to keep going back i got some tinkerbell fabric from there and was so tempted by some powerrangers stuff but i didnt havew the money on me. they get new stuff in all the time.

I got that tinkerbell fabric too! (presume it's the blue one with swirly bits?) I made a bag and I'm making a skirt:) I got a skull and crossbones one recently as well from there...I practically live in Abakhans, lol.

Leon's in Chorlton is pretty good.
Abakhans' is good for rummage every so often, but they have a massive 4 warehouses out in Moston the Wales boarder,...which is a MUST day out for any craftster.

To be honest, I find that scouring the charity shops in Withington and Didsbury pretty fruitful sometimes.

And every so ofter, if I'm looking for a certain print or type of fabric I'll go on ebay and search....

I miss that place in Manchester that used to be near the Arndale : (
I remember getting 14 pairs of jeans for a fiver in there and some embroidery anglaise reems for about 2.
It was amazing!
shame it closed down

Charity shops. most are overpriced but there was a caspar duvet in the PDSA shop (in Oldham) the other day for 1. Enough for a dress, bag and plenty more.

Think a lot of people use ebay, but the charachter duvets go for crazy ammounts!

I once asked the guy who makes those bags (the really cool ones, used to sell in afflecks and now in a shop on oldham street)where he got his fabric, i think he said mainly online... I love those bags, i wanted a batman one for so long, then it sold! There pretty overpriced though.
