Pretty Poplins!

While casually surfing eBay for fabrics last night, I stumbled upon a seller called Minerva Crafts. Some simple Googling later turned up their official website, and all I can say is, why have I never heard of this company before!! I'm sure some of you out there in blogland have shopped with them before, and they'll need no introduction, but for me, it was a pleasant surprise.

They have a huge range of fabrics, notions, wool, and all sorts of other crafty bits and bobs. Most excitingly, for me, is that they currently have 20% off all cotton poplin prints (just enter poplin20 at the checkout) but only until midnight on March 1st! I'm planning on making some summery dresses and I bought a few metres of this lovely teal green/blue poplin that I'm going to turn into Pattern Runway's gathered sundress.

My purchase
It hasn't arrived yet, so I can't judge the quality, but I'm hoping it'll be lovely. If all goes well, I'll probably pick up some voile too, and create a light, floaty Mathilde blouse with sheer sleeves and a lined bodice. I don't get to go fabric shopping very often, and rely on shopping online, so finding a place with a great range and great prices is a godsend!

Oh, and they also have 50% off New Look patterns (enter nlook50 at checkout) until March 9th. I'm planning on making New Look 6723 later this year, so I'll definitely be taking advantage of that!


  1. Glad I'm not crafting at the moment other wise I could have spent loads on that site ...not that I need anything.xx

  2. That's gorgeous! I ordered 3 different poplins from Minerva Crafts at the end of last week, and got them yesterday. They're lovely, and great quality.

    1. So glad to hear it! I was worried people were going to have horror stories about dealing with them or something. I'm excited to get it. If I wasn't saving up for my wedding at the moment I would have spent tons more!
