Where do you get your treasured stitching supplies?

Some supplies can be hard to find such as natural toy stuffing and 100% cotton, linen, or wool threads and fabrics. I'll keep listing more sew-pplies retailers and online sources as I find them. Let me know your favorites and I'll share them here.

About the cost of natural stuffing. It costs about $20 a pound/500gm for natural stuffing. Sometimes that includes shipping and sometimes not. But if that's the price you've worked out, that's pretty typical.
