London Fabric Shopping: Useful Advice?

Life is treating my kindly these days – I will have a chance to travel to London very shortly and while the main purpose of the trip is to show my daughter the delights of London together with a visit to the O2 to see the inimitable Miranda, rest assured that some fabric shopping will be done.
So this is where I would like to ask your advice: Where should I go?

So far I know of

Do you think there are any other/better places to go and visit?

There are a few restrictions:

  • I’m flying Ryan Air, so I can’t buy huge amounts
  • I don’t really need anything, strictly speaking, so I might want to “concentrate” on summer dress type fabrics
  • no long travelling as daughter will have to tag along – and you all know how strict she is with me. So were are looking at Central London shops I guess.
  • If I only have time for either the Goldhawk Road or Walthamstow Market, which one should I pick?

So if you know of any super special London fabric shops I would love to know!

    Berwick Road has some lovely, although more expensive, shops. Liberty is worth a visit, it’s just beautiful.

      Yeah, I think Liberty is on my snooping around list (though probably not on my shopping list…)

    Mac Culloch and Wallis, at 25 Dering St just near Oxford Circus tube station is well worth a visit. It’s the sort of place where it pays to know what you are looking for then asking for assistance. It’s always full of design students. Sells fabric online too.
