'Backstitch is a stylish online craft store stocking a range of patterned fabrics, plain fabrics, and sewing patterns. The current selection of patterned fabrics includes favorite designers such as Kaffe Fassett, Anna Maria Horner and Amy Butler, and also introduces a new designer, Lily Keziah. The plain fabric range is currently a spectrum of cottons which are both versatile and great value for money. Fabrics can be bought by the metre or in bundles from the cocktail collection! Backstitch also stock a great selection of sewing patterns. Designs from Sew Liberated, Oliver + S, Anna Maria Horner, Bettsy Kingston, Colette… the list goes on. In addition to being a shop, the Backstitch website features regular articles which, in tandem with their blog, at backstitchblog.blogspot.com, share sewing inspiration, tutorials, and reviews.'
The website is really well laid out, clearly labelled and very easy to navigate. There is a great range of plain cotton fabrics for only £5.50 a metre, which is exceptionally good value. The fabric bundles have been thoughtfully put together using either a range of fabrics from the same designer of a mix of fabrics along a colour theme. They also have fun cocktail inspired names such as the Manhattan, or the Whiskey Sour (my personal favourite). Alice's blog features pattern reviews, news of what's coming soon and giveaways. All in all, well worth a visit.
