All systems go……

Week commencing April 12th 2021 will be such an exciting wee,k not only will the doors of Fine Fabrics be opening on Tuesday 13th at 10am but also the Great British sewing Bee will be aired on our tellyboxes, like buses everything happening at once………but we are so ready for things to change, well I am. This last lockdown has been very difficult lots of issues with the shop building, once one thing went wrong a domino effect occurred. Thankfully with Spring arriving things are looking so much brighter.

I would appreciate you wearing your mask and sanitising your hands on entry to the shop, then you will be able to touch the fabrics to your hearts content. New summer fabrics have been ordered, some have already arrived and I have uploaded them onto the website, others are taking slightly longer than expected but I assure you they are worth the wait, I am keeping my fingers crossed that they may still get here in time for opening.

The fabric featured below is one of my recent purchases, such a vibrant ocean blue cotton lawn absolutely perfect for summer dresses, blouses, shirts, camisoles, beach cover ups (if only…..) this fabric just makes you smile.


The cotton pictured below would make a perfect shift dress, shirt or skirt it is crisper than the cotton lawn featured above.


The sewing classes with not recommence until after May 17th, as this is when adult education opens in line with the Government regulations. The classes will be smaller than we were able to do and will take place on a tuesday or wednesday so if you are interested in joining the daytime classes can you email me as soon as possible

A year ago our lives completely and utterly changed , we have learnt to value the smallest of things which we all took for granted, hugging a friend , being with family, even just being able to go outside . Along with all the awful and tragic events that have occurred there has been so much to celebrate and reflect upon. I do hope we all become nicer versions of ourselves and remember to thank all of those who have worked tirelessly for us , which has made it possible for us to enjoy this new freedom, by respecting the guidelines we can avoid having to go through another lockdown.

I hope to see you all very soon.
