My local (Gloucester) Hobbycraft store has a sale of patchwork fabric from 3 pounds per metre - I bought some Makower and Andover fabrics, but there is also some Amy Butler and Tanya Whelan fabrics at 6 pounds per metre

Thanks Marian, I hope that sale is in other Hobbycrafts too, it sounds like there are some bargains to be had

Just been to Hobbycraft it was on the way back from Watford Hospital where my DH had an appointment at the eye clinic. So I was allowed a treat on the way home , not much left at £3 but more at £6 ,so I managed 4 metres and 3 balls of wool 3 for 2.

I picked up a metre of tractor fabric for a friend but there wasn't much reduced fabric left. (£12.99 down to £5 so she's happy!) But,.... I did buy some sock wool at £1 per ball and 2 fancier sock yarns for half price too, and a "Knitting for Gold" book which was marked down to £2.99 from £7.99 but £2 at the till... and a die for my cuttlebug.

Quite a bit here at Hobbycraft Stockport £3 and £6. Mostly plainish with a few novelty prints, lots of 'Dimples' (Andover fabric) in different colours. I have made two trips but must not go again.....

I went to Basildon branch of Hobbycraft and they have lots of reduced £3 and £6 fabrics.......well they did before I got there, not so much now .....to be fair, I went to the local charity shop with 3 big bags of donations of clothes, books and bric a brac after a holiday Spring clean so I did have space to fill...........and I got 15½ metres from 9 different fabrics, (mostly Spraytimes and Dimples but all good stock colours), estimated at full cost was over £100 but cost me just over £43 as the till crashed when the customer before me was being served and I waited for over 25 mins so asked for a coffee and they gave me another 10% off whole bill for having to wait....... I am a happy bunny...............Marian

Good bargains - not-to-be missed Jill. Last year one of the assistants who knows me as a regular told me I'd missed some fabric the day before....a lot of metres because when the lady had taken it to the till, it was OUT-OF-DATE.......and they're not allowed to charge for it......so the lady took the lot..........how can fabric be out of date?............Marian
