The Fabric Store Melbourne

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

We’ve been busy checking out some great Melbourne Fabric stores in preparation for our fabric bus tour we’re organising in term 1.

First stop for Jacqueline & our lovely friend and sewing teacher Clare-Louise from The Thrifty Stitcher in London was:

The Fabric Store

184 Brunswick Street,

Fitzroy, Melbourne 3065. 

www.thefabricstore.com.au

The Fabric Store stock designer dress fabrics, merino wool and Liberty of London prints. Also high quality cotton basics, linens and woollens through to designer printed silks, sequins and leather.

The majority of the fabrics they source are deadstock items, which means that they are end-of-line, mill overruns, cancelled orders or designer excess fabrics. These are fabrics that are deemed a waste product in the fashion industry and would often otherwise end up as landfill.

Liberty Fabrics The Fabric Shop

Over the years The Fabric Store have formed relationships with some of the best designer suppliers, both internationally and locally, in order to bring us an amazing and unique range of stock without the waste and ethical implications of mass manufacture.
