The Eternal Maker in Chichester is one of my very favourite fabric shops. There is an amazing choice of fabric and haberdashery, I always stock up on their lovely wool felt. The staff are very helpful and there are always lots of little sewn examples hiding around the shop to inspire you and show you how the fabric looks when its made up. They sell online too, find them here.
Hands in tubs of buttons, almost akin to Amélie plunging her hands into bags of seeds…
I love it 😉
What a lovely place, wish we had a shop like this in Nottingham! Have you been to Cowslip Workshops in Launceston, Cornwall? Its a cafe and fabric shop on a farm (they also run loads of workshops, hence the name). The shop there is like a little cave all stacked and draped with lovely fabrics and quilts: http://www.cowslipworkshops.co.uk/html/large_photos/cowslip_012.html

Looks like an AMAZING shop!! Thanks so much for sharing this I’ll definitely have to make a trip to visit! Does that area do a shop hop of any sort at some point throughout the year?
It really is worth a visit. Oooo whats a shop hop?
In Washington State we have a huge one in June! I think there’s some like fifty shops now that participate, it’s over a long weekend and you go to as many shops as you can, each shop gives you a quilt block to make so you can have an entire quilt top once you’re done AND BEST OF ALL you get to see tons and tons of amazing shops! Every state should do it if you ask me!
Wow that sounds like an excellent idea!
Looks like a brilliant shop for a rummage.
You would love all the buttons too!
Oh No!! Another lovely shop, this could end in disaster!!! (For me not the shop!!) Do they have dress fabric???
Lots and lots of lovely quilting weight cottons which would make excellent dresses 🙂
I am sooo going here on my next holiday! Best start saving now me thinks…
