    Default Spotlight sucks - where to buy fabric online?

    Went to Spotlight today and I swear it is a place for bored people who have all the time in the world to wander around searching for stuff.

    I gave up and left with nothing.

    Want to buy some reasonably priced fabric online - any suggestions???

    TIA

    I have nothing constructive to add but the no other place in the world is as slow as Spotlight.

    I agree with the above, easy has some great finds if you've got the time to look.

    LOL
    I work at Spotlight, have done for 10 years and love it.
    Just wanted to say sorry for your bad experience. Not all stores are terrible.



    Not really any help, but good luck finding something online xxx

    Hehe sorry kstar I hope I don't offend Spotlight workers. My mum has worked there for many years too so normally I just ask her to grab stuff for me, she's heading to Vietnam though so I had to venture in there myself today for the first time as a customer Never again!!

    It's not the workers fault, I know the store my mum works for are way, way understaffed as they have a cheap a$$ manager I just assumed the one I went to today is the same.

    Grrrrr Spotlight!

    I went there the other week and bought meters and meters of tulle and polynet. Holding a baby on one hip, juggling my wallet and keys in the other. And they just hand me the material and say sorry we dont give out bags anymore. I mean, come on, really??? At a haberdashery store of all places where everything is bitsy or bulky, they decide to stop using bags??? And after I have spent all that $$$ on material, I dont wanna fork out to buy another reusable bag IYKWIM.

    Just give me a brown paper bag next time I am in there Spotlight!!!! Lol.
