Update on fabric importing August 14, 2007

Filed under: Shopping — lauravw @ 6:55 pm

After spending a very long time looking at lots of pretty prints, I finally made a decision and ordered some fabric from the US. Sadly, while Reprodepot had the print I wanted, the price for it was a little higher than many of their other prints, which meant by the time I added in the cost of shipping, I’d be over the limit and would have to pay import duty when it arrived.

So I shopped around and found some Amy Butler prints at store called Z and S Fabrics. I bought a yard and a half of an Amy Butler print (for a skirt) and a yard and a bit each of some other patterns that caught my eye. It took just over a week for the fabrics to show up in the post here, which is excellent – post from the US usually seems to take that long, which means it must have been shipped promptly. The prices were great (there was a sale on when I ordered), and the fabric was beautifully packed.

If you’re in the UK and want to order fabric from the US, this is what you need to know.
