Patch Fabrics



Today we're off to the fairest County in all Great Britain - Suffolk. Yes, I know I'm biased because I'm a Tractor Girl myself but it really is the greatest County of all and everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime.
Claire (who is almost my opposite - she's from Oop North but has relocated to East Anglia. I'm a Tractor Girl, relocated to Yorkshire) is fulfilling her dream of being surrounded by fabrics and trims running Patch Fabrics. This girl has big plans, and her ultimate dream is to have a real life bricks and mortar shop. I think she'll get there.

In Claire's words;

'Patch Fabric and Haberdashery, is a new online shop based on the East Coast of England.
We stock fun fabrics in contemporary design, by designers such as Michael Miller, Red Rooster, P&B Textiles, Denyse Schmidt, Amy Butler, Tanya Whelan, Kaffe Fassett, Anna Maria Horner and Clothworks. Patch caters for the serious quilter and dressmaker, as well as crafters who just want to play with fun fabric! We also stock ribbons and trims to complete your project'.




Patch is another easy to navigate, lovely to look at site with a really great variety of fabrics.

She also stocks vilene, bunting tape, cording, ribbon and elastic - so you can pick up a whole heap of haberdashery items as well as your fabrics.

The inspiration packs are perfect gifts, to either yourself (you deserve it, don't you?!) or friends. Starting from only £3.25 for the mini packs and going up to £7.25 for the regular sized packs they contain 2 pieces of fabric and co-ordinating trims and ribbon. Such a lovely idea.


Claire is offering free UK postage to I'm A Ginger Monkey readers. Skip along to Patch Fabrics and place an order, entering the code UKGM in the message to seller box at checkout (the postage will be refunded to your paypal account).

Don't forget about the giveaway from Backstitch yesterday - just click here and leave a comment on yesterday's post for a chance to win.

Come back again tomorrow - we've got another great shop to tempt you with!!!

I'm a Suffolk girl too and it is the most beautiful county, thank you for the link to Patch and the free postage, it just so happens I need to stock up, so it's very handy x

I think the idea of those inspiration packs is brilliant.

Another great shop. Lamifix is new to me, sounds like the start of a fun project. The velvet ric rac would be great to add to a sensory blanket for a baby/child and the inspiration packs would make a lovely small gift!
