Established in 1974, our Fashion Fabric and Haberdashery store has one of the most diverse and interesting selections in the country. We are able to source fabrics that other stores do not have, thanks to the long established relationships we have with our suppliers. Some suppliers buy especially for us because they know our 'handwriting' and our desire to be different.
Whether you are searching for a basic plain cloth or an elegant embroidered silk, our aim is to offer quality and value. We have cloth deliveries virtually every day so there is always something different on offer.
We strive to present our fabrics with content and care information and were amongst the first to offer free samples in store (subject to quantity) for our customers to study at home if needed.
Our Haberdashery department is equally well stocked offering everyday items to elaborate trims and buttons- whilst trying to avoid 'prepacks' whenever we can!
Patterns in stock include Vogue, Burda, Butterick, McCalls and Kwiksew.
We are stockists of Gutermann and Mettler threads and Dylon products.
With over 100 years combined staff experience we can offer knowledgable advice whether you are a beginner or experienced. Our customers include Bridal Designers, Theatres, Professional Dressmakers and Tailors from around the country but we especially welcome beginners too!
There is no online purchasing facility at the moment because of the diversity of products we offer and the difficulties in presenting colours and textures accurately. Obviously, the best way to see our ranges is to come and visit us. However if you would like to contact us by phone we are experienced in sampling and mailing fabrics and orders by post. Please try to supply colour and quantity information so we can narrow our search - we have over 5000 fabrics to choose from! The dress fabric department gets very busy so we ask for your patience when calling!
