Focus on....The Cotton Spool
The Cotton Spool is an online fabric store stocking a range of imported fabrics that you can’t always find on the high street. A bold, colourful mix of high-quality fabrics from Japanese design houses Kokka and Echino. Organic prints from German company Westfalenstoffe, funky patterns from Michael Miller and liberty-esque prints from Fabric Freedom.
Rather than having the fabric sorted by designer like many stores, theirs are sorted by design theme, including floral, geometric and cute creatures. So if you have a particular design in mind, you don’t have to search through all the designers until you find it.
As well as fabrics they also stock ribbons, trims, felt and bag handles so you can buy everything you need to make bags out of their fabrics. Or if you’re feeling more adventurous, why not customise an old item of clothing with some ric rac for a vintage look.
