What is a fat quarter?
A fat quarter is a way of cutting a metre of fabric in to 4. The fabric size you’ll get from a fat quarter is roughly 50 x 55cm or 20 x 22 inches.
Metres or yards?
We work in metres but here’s a handy conversion chart:

1 inch 2.54 centimetres
1 foot 30 centimetres
1 yard 0.91 metres
1 metre 100 centimetres
Do you have every item listed on the website?

No our shop is filled with lots more goods than we are able to list here on the website! We are currently still working on listing more items for those who are unable to travel to our shop – if there is anything in particular you are after please give us a call or send us an e-mail and one of our staff will be able to advise you – the shop is filled with plenty more fabric and haberdashery. Orders can also be placed this way rather than through the website if you are after something that isn’t listed on here.

What is Click and Collect?
As well as an online shop, we have a physical shop located in Essex that you can collect your order from. Just select Click and Collect as the shipping method at the checkout and we’ll get your order ready within 2 working days for you to collect. Please note that we’ll send you an email when your order is ready to be collected.

The address to collect from is:

Will the fabric come as a continuous length if I order over a quarter of a metre?
If you order anything over a quarter of a metre, we’ll cut it as a continuous length, not as separate pieces.
Do you sell furnishing fabrics?

Although not listed on the website, we have a great selection of furnishing fabrics available for upholstery purposes such as covering a chair or a new pair of curtains! In our shop we have blue folders with small off cuts of all furnishing fabrics that we have in stock – you are welcome to have a look through these and staff can help you show the fabrics on larger scale, cut you samples or generally give you advise. We can also help with calculation your desired fabric length. Aside from these folders we also have loads of sample books from companies such as Prestigious Textiles, iLiv and Voyage which we can take you through (samples of these can also be ordered). 

Do you service sewing machines?

We don’t service sewing machines in the shop. We used to be a pickup point but are no longer doing this. Please give us a call and we can redirect you to the right person for sewing machine repairs who has several pickup points in Essex.

Can you cut fat quarters?

In our shop we have plenty of baskets with fat quarters – although we do try go through the bolts and stock them back up every now and then, we can happily cut you a fat quarter if there isn’t already one out there.

Do you have any job openings?

Job openings will often be listed on social media rather than the website, but you can always drop us a message or call to see if we have any openings available.
