Cabramatta is also good cause there is about 7 shops on the one street.. but they seem to specialise in really expensive fabrics(for cheap). So $100 fabric might be $40/metre but they dont have much really cheapo generic stuff.

And lastly I love getting clothes at second hand shops that are made of excellent fabric and dismantlng them!


Hey, I've moved to Sydney recently and was hoping to head out to Cabramatta tomorrow, but about the second hand shops - does anyone know some good ones like 'Savers' in Melbourne?? I like new fabrics, but mostly use second hand ones and my supplies are getting low from not knowing where to shop!!!

there is a pretty good fabric shop in hurstville called my hung
its much more reasonable than lincraft is and even better if you catch their 20% off sale

Yeah, I like that shop too! I also like Rainbow Fabrics in Kogarah, for its cheap prices, though I don't think the range is all that interesting.

I found a really great store in Marrickville, in amongst the factories, called the Remnant Warehouse. It's on Sydenham Rd. You can walk there from Sydenham station.
Here's their website: http://www.theremnantwarehouse.com.au/index.html
I must say, it is AMAZING. They have a large selection of denims, lots of discount bins out the front, amazing trims, real wool felt, quilting fabrics, and best of all, the most marvellous selection of metallic "dance" fabrics that I have ever seen!! I love liquid metallics, and they have everything! Even hologram fabric! Definately check it out the selection is pretty good, so there's probably something there for everyone!

Hey Heartbreaker!

I've been to that remnant warehouse and I agree - it's totally great! Heaps of beautiful fabric at killer prices and everyone I've been served by there are just lovely! and heaps helpful!

I'm still looking for a good vintage op shop type place that stocks old curtain and tablecloth material - as I'm always into recycling fabrics! Anyone know of any places in sydney?

The My Hung stores in Penrith and Parramatta are both pretty good, and Penrith's Spotlight is great, it has everything. The fabric stores are the only thing i'll ever miss from that place. I've found that the Spotlight's towards the city (Bondi being my local one now) don't have as wide a selection.
There are some good fabric stores in Marrickville, on Marrickville rd that stock a pretty decent variety of fabrics for cheap.

I go to Spotlight, Lincraft and Tessuti. There is a Tessuti at Chatswood, the city and Bondi i think.

Also Burnt St Fabrics in Seaforth is really good. More upholstery fabrics but there is heaps and heaps of it and you can usually find a great fabric.

Does anyone know if there are still a bunch of stores on Marrickville Road?  I'm new to the area and trying to figure out a good place to go this weekend.  Thanks!
