We have such a great range of haberdashery supplies; we would like to think we stock nearly everything you could possibly need for any sewing or knitting project! It would be difficult to show all our products online so why not call or email us with any enquiries. We are happy to pop anything in the post whether it is a pattern, a zip, a reel of thread, a new pair of scissors or a complete project, just ring and let us know, we are happy to help!
To save you time we keep dressmaking patterns in stock, including Simplicity, New Look, Butterick, Vogue and Burda. We can also order in McCalls patterns for you. We keep all the latest catalogues for you to browse through or you could take a look at www.sewdirect.com at home, choose your pattern, then pick it up when to come in to look for your fabric or ring us and we can add it to your online order.
Here is a list of just some of what we have in store:
Paper dress patterns – essential to get that perfect fit and style.
Ribbons, cords, braids, fringing and trimmings – don’t forget to add some embellishment to your garment or project to make it unique.
Scissors, rotary cutters and mats – you will find that accurate cutting out and snipping awkward corners so much easier with good quality sharp pairs of scissors or a rotary cutter.
Zips, buttons and fastenings – most garments will need a fastening of some kind, decide whether it wants to be hidden or a feature, the choice is yours!
Hand and machine needles, pins and threads – if your machine does not sew well, it is often because the needle is blunt or damaged, few of us change our needles as often as we should. There are different needles for different fabrics, ask us if you are not sure which to use.
Beads, findings, sequins and jewellery wire – add beads to a garment or make your own jewellery to co-ordinate with that new outfit (that you have made!).
Toy eyes, joints, squeakers and noses – always use safety eyes and noses when making toys for small children or you can always embroider them on if you prefer.
Glues and sticky tapes – glues for every purpose, whether it is to stick fabric, gems or paper, temporarily repositionable or permanent.
Dyes, paints and feathers – give a favourite garment a new lease of life by strengthening its original colour or stripping it and giving it a new colour (this works best on natural fibres).
Knitting needles, crochet hooks and stitch holders – all the knitting needle options you could need, circular, pairs, sets of four, long, short, bamboo, wooden, plastic, metal........
Elastics, tapes, webbings and waistbandings – for an easy garment take a shortcut by using elastic instead of a fastening or a tape rather than make a waistband. Ideal for children’s clothes.
Quilting rulers and markers – for accurate cutting of fabric pieces; essential for achieving perfect lines and matching seams in your quilt.
Bridal motifs and laces – make that special dress even more unique with the addition of beautiful lace motifs and edgings; ask to see our full selection.
Interfacings and stabilisers – give your project that professional looking finish, essential to keep the shape of any garment. We can guide you to the right product for the right fabric, the choice can be confusing!
Waddings, battings and cushion pads – We have a range of polyester waddings in different thicknesses and a natural 80/20 cotton polyester batting pre packed or on the roll. Also toy filling and cushion pads filled with feathers or polyfil.
Curtain tapes, hooks and weights – everything you need to complete your curtains with a range of different headings available to suit your decor. We can show you how to use them.
Upholstery nails, pins and needles – look out for our increasing range of upholstery supplies for those wanting to give a piece of furniture an uplift at the fraction of the cost of buying new.
