Due to low footfall, but high web orders, we are no longer operating our High Street location as a traditional shop. You are still welcome to visit, but our patterns are slowly being removed from display as they sell. You will have access to everything, it's just not on display in the traditional way.
This was a difficult decision to take, as it has always been my dream to have a lovely shop filled with beautiful displays, but 95% of our business is online and too much time was being spent on shop displays and making the shop floor customer friendly and finding stock misplaced during customer browsing, to the detriment of the website order processing. We also need the space for stock storage.
WE ARE NOT CLOSING and you are welcome to visit us, but please let us know you're coming.
If you intend to travel any distance to visit, please PHONE 01380 850065 to check the workshop will be open before you set out.
It may save you a phone call/trip to know that we do not stock general haberdashery, paper craft or general craft supplies. We are a specialised needlework shop with some quilting notions and fabric. We do not sell glue, bra extenders, upholstery fabric, shoe laces, elbow patches, bias tape or tapestry wool of any kind (though we do have some beautiful crewel wool and kits). Nor do we do clothes alterations, make soft furnishings or provide sewing services. We can, however, put you in touch with excellent craftspeople in our area to help you.
