Dot n Stripes are quite different from the majority of online fabric stores, they specialise in European fabrics, patterns, magazines and accessories.
They are the only UK stockists of Hilco, Stenzo, Bizzkids and Polytex fabrics, Mamu Design and Farbenmix sewing patterns. They also stock Ottobre Design, Bizzkids and F.I.M.I magazines which you would be hard pushed to find elsewhere.
They have a great range of colour children’s fabrics, such as this gorgeous blue corduroy pictured, priced at just £6.99 a metre. One thing that I love is that they have a section dedicated to sewing for boys, both patterns and fabrics. As a mum of a young boy I find many shops tend to cater towards girls so the boy’s section on Dot N Stripes is a welcome change.
You can also find a full range of haberdashery on the site threads, zips, ribbons buttons, etc along with some cute appliqué patches like the one pictured above. They have just had the new range of summer fabrics from Hilco arrive, you can find them here.
