I only found out recently that Doughty's have a programme of roadshows where they set up shop in a local village hall, church hall or community centre. I went to a recent one, and they had a seriously huge range of fabrics to choose from.
It was £1 entry but that includes a coffee/tea and a biscuit - while my DH and I were sitting enjoying ours, we struck up conversation with the people at the next table, and it turned out one of them was a member of a local FB sewing group I belong to. So nice to meet one of the members in the flesh!
Check out their programme here to see if there are any planned in your area.
