Quilting fabrics and patchwork is a very beautiful and personal artform that can be accomplished by anyone whatever the age or gender. You would only need to give in a few moments of your time. For those who are wondering how they can start, there are a lot of helpful beginner videos on YouTube or by joining a quilters group. But if there is one obstacle every neophyte has to pass through, it’s how to can get the materials needed.
Living in the UK, one would expect to find quilting fabrics and supplies available around the corner. Unfortunately, not everyone has a supply shop near them. With this in mind, you may need to order the items online which would range from: £3 (0.25Kg) £25 (2kg and over) for the weight of the order.
The first thing you would need is a computer/laptop and an internet connection. By using any type of search engine (Google, Safari, or Internet Explorer) you would be able to locate any quilting fabric, pattern, or material. Be advised that it can help if you add your general location to generate more accurate results. The next step would be to check each site for the material you are looking for. This may be the most tedious part as you would need to open each one. However these sites, such as Cookes Quilting are very easy to navigate and you might find something interesting along the way such as books, DVD’s, and workshops. After choosing the item, you may only need to use the checkout link and place in your payment information (this can either be your credit/debit card or PayPal account).
Note that the time of delivery may vary based on the size of the item or the order. After getting your hands on the needed items you can then start off your masterpiece one patchwork at a time.
