Since I have started the subject of shopping, I thought would also mention my other great favourite place for purchasing PFD fabric of fantastic quality. Millar Textiles, Unit 12, Old Mill Park,
Old Mill Road, Ndabeni, 7405 Cape Town.
Hilda is the lovely lady I know there - and she is so helpful and patient. I visit her a few times a year to buy the 100% cotton PFD fabric I use so much of these days. It has a moderately firm weave, so is easy to sew through but does not stretch or move about under the needle. It takes dye fantastically well too with the minimum of preparation.
Last time I visited I spotted a nice lightweight 100% cotton voile - so I bought 10 metres to give it a try. It is wonderfully soft - so I will need to think about a special project for it.
Millar Textiles sell a huge range of fabrics - visit their website to see the range; http://www.millartextiles.co.za/
and if you are in the market for great quality, inexpensive PFD fabric - then go and see Hilda!
