I am handsewing a needlebook with a little handquilting and beading. Was searching google for an online shop that sells 1 metre of pretty laces in natural fibres silks, cotton etc
I am looking for somewhere that has reasonable shipping to EU.
Scans of my  leftovers fabric needlebook. The leaf is thick felt I had many years in my stash. Leaf dyed it with chamomile tea so it not white but offwhite now. Strawberry pincushion seedbeads red in 11/0.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I was going to suggest Etsy. Sometimes they have some smaller pieces. Also, do you have a fabric store near you? Sometimes they will sell you smaller pieces, you can get less than a yard.

What sort of thing are you looking for and how much? I have quite the stash and am always willing to part with bits of it for fun projects like yours. Send me a message on here if you'd like a little happy mail from Canada Cheesy.

Update the leaf had some tiny roses/trellis added and stitched some glass pearls on some ribbon. Those other 2 roses/pink/gifts  are the hand sewed small size needlebooks I have in use these past years, and the candy canes blue I made last year after hand sewing a pillowcase of same fabric. If someone knows if the candy cane fabric is still sold somewhere was made in blue, green and red? "Seasons Greetings Candy Cane"
