About

A Fabric Excuse

Living in a house with a dressmaker/patternmaker and an artist already gives reasons for buying lots of interesting fabrics.

We have also been given a lot of fabric over the years, when others are destashing it often ends up at our house to use, give to sewing students, or sell. So we opened AltFabrics on Etsy, where we could sell the more unusual and interesting pieces we were given and could source from wholesalers.

Everything we choose to sell in our Etsy shop is something we would love to use (we're never too sad if a piece doesn't sell, we have plans for it all!), and some of it is ends of fabric rolls that have been used for various productions.

A lot of the fabric and patterns in our Etsy shop are discontinued, they're usually at least a year old, and often a lot older than that! Each item has a bit of it's history if we know the details.

We hope you enjoy searching through our Ety shop as much as we enjoy stocking it.
