Yes I'd be interested to see how the customs charges work - having failed to do an order with Driessenstoffen recently.

I've recently discovered pound a metre fabrics... the fabrics aren't all £1 a metre but there are some bargains.

I'm going to have to unrecommend Pound a Metre fabrics. I've had several orders from them and all fine. However the order I placed on 26th March has still not arrived on 13th April. I've sent two emails and one FB message but no reply. I see a couple of Trustpilot reviews saying much the same. If I don't hear in the next couple of days I'll see about requesting a refund via paypal and I'll leave an appropriate trustpilot review.

What a shame. I hope it comes right for you Tamnymore. It’s the sorting out that’s as much a pain as not receiving the goods. Thank you for the warning.

The fabric that I ordered from myfabrics arrived, they gave me 15% discount,  with shipping it worked out at £39, no duty to pay! Very good quality linen.

I have seen some paisley design ponte that I like. Thanks in advance.

I took  a chance and ordered the paisley ponte and am pleased with the fabric. Delivery was prompt, their website isn't particularly user friendly but they have some lovely curtain fabrics as well as dressmaking and craft fabrics. I'll be adding them to my preferred sites.

@Silver Rose Well that made me look!
If I hadn't just had to spend over £400 on glasses for DH I might have had a full shopping basket.... there is always next month  :laughing:

As it neared the top of the grade, it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the grade, congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could,  I thought I could."

I don't know how many have come across The Millshop Online.

I've been searching for curtain fabrics for most of my windows and found something I really liked in, I think, Just Fabrics. £12.95 a metre wasn't too bad a price but I kept searching other sites for other fabrics. Then the one first wanted was in The Millshop Online for £9.95 per m. Since I wanted 12m that was a decent saving. The fabric arrived quickly and was well-packaged. I have now ordered from them again. P&P is £8.95 though free over £125. Samples are free. They also do upholstery fabric.

I have just managed to order two lengths of linen from myfabrics.co.uk
If you purchase through Quidco you'll get 8% in cashback, it all adds up  :D
I’m a fabricholic on the road to recovery. Just kidding. I’m on the road to the fabric store.
