One of the biggest challenges that bag makers face is getting hold of the hardware they need. Fabric is easily obtained, whether in person or online, but by the time we get to interfacing, well, that’s kind of boring and not as easy to obtain, and I think the hardware just baffles shops entirely, so they don’t stock anything for fear of never selling things.
I can totally understand the shops’ point of view though, if no-one can tell them what’s needed, then they won’t be able to stock it, no shop owner wants to waste money and retail space. If you have the time, I’d love it if you could complete the survey below, hopefully something will come of it in the future :o)
Thanks for your time!
Sorry Katy is there a link there? I just got the offer to create my own survey xx
Survey taken, look forward to seeing the results.
Survey taken. I am just getting into bag making but am finding it hard to source my hardware both online and in stores which is frustrating; it just shouldn't be this hard! Maybe I'm not looking in the right places.
