Some of the suppliers I've used in the past (mostly American!)

Jas Townsend and Son Warning: This site is addictive - you will want to buy EVERYTHING. They're very good with their delivery times and stuff, too.

G Gedney Godwin Not quite as extensive a collection as Jas Townsend, but still interesting. I've not actually bought anything from them, so I don't know what they're like with deliveries, problems etc.

Patterns and fabrics suppliers:

Kannick's Korner Easy-to-follow patterns for a wide variety of things

Patterns of Time If they haven't got it... it probably isn't worth having!

Wm Booth, Draper A decent selection of period fabrics

Period Fabric Again, a decent selection, though the website isn't completely up to date.

Ticking If you're like me and need ticking, this looks like a good place to get it - they have it in a variety of different colours, too. A little pricey, though.

I just posted a huge list of fabric stores in my journal! Unfortunately, it is friends-locked, but I can fix that. A couple of the sites in this post are new to me, too, so that's great. :)

Online fabric store list. It's not limited to any one era -- maybe there's a little bit of prejudice to the mid-19th-century in the ones with cotton prints. I also have a bunch of stores to add to the list from comments on LJ, but LJ is having issues at the moment, thanks to Russian politics.

Good list!

Wm Booth, Draper? That guy has got sensational fabric.

Another great place -- Burnley and Trowbridge. They are the fabric suppliers for Colonial Williamsburg.

96 Storehouse WINS for all time. It is the place you can get linsey-woolsey hose, and hemp fabric of all grades and weights.
