We Are Underway!

It's been a few weeks since we re-opened with a bang, so now the dust has settled a little bit, I thought this might be a nice time to show you a few photos of the new finished shop and hopefully tempt a few of you newbies to come and pay us a visit!   The biggest challenge of getting this new shop ready wasn't the heavy lifting, it was deciding on the layout. In the last shop, because of its construction, I was limited with what I could have and where, whereas with this one, I was very overfaced...

Mirfield, WE ARE IN YOU!

Yes, friends, it's been a loooooong month since we closed the doors on our Roberttown shop! Stairs have been built, electric has been connected, flooring has been installed, and I am very happy (and relieved!) to say that we are ready for opening on Saturday 26th October! I have to say, moving shop is about 100 times harder than starting from scratch. In the first shop, we fit the furniture then bought enough stock to suit. This time round, we had alllllll the stuff from the old shop to fit in, plus extra products, and so had to buy/make the...

New Shop Update!

Sep 16 2019 Tags: fabric shop, fabric shop yorkshire, new shop, sewing yorkshire

Since our announcement a couple of months ago that we're moving to bigger premises, we've been a bit quiet about how its all going. Well, there's a very good reason for that. There has been  A LOT of work to do to get the building up to our high Fabricate standards, so rest assured, there has been plenty going on in the background! For a start, even though the shop is two storey, the previous tenants removed the staircase and all the power to the upstairs so all of that needed to be restored, which is well on its way...

Times are a Changing...

After two and a half years, the time has come to take the next big leap in building up my little Fabricate, which means WE ARE MOVING and will become Fabricate Mirfield! Or just Fabricate. Or Fabricate something else, I haven't quite decided on that bit yet!! If you've been to the shop recently, you will know that I am basically getting buried in all our fabrics and there really isn't room where we are now for me to sell all the other things I want to sell to give you the best all-round experience I can. So there's only...

Fabricate Autumn/Winter 2018/19 Inspo

Sep 27 2018 Tags: autumn/winter 2018/19, autumn/winter lookbook, fashion inspiration

Brrrrrrr…!  The weather has certainly turned (boo!) which means one thing; we can make things for our autumn/winter wardrobes without sweating like beasts in our sewing rooms (yay!!!) I thought I'd help you along a little bit and share with you some of my fave pieces on the high street at the moment and which patterns and fabrics to use to make something similar.  Think of me as your own personal Fabricate Gok Wan, if you will. Look No. 1: Animal Print This is HUUUUGE this season. My advice?  Be careful!  I love an animal print but it is so...

How to Make Your Fabric Go Further (Sorry, Mr Accountant!)

Aug 16 2018 Tags: Fabric Waste

Am I the only who gets infuriated over how much waste fabric is left at the end of making a garment?  Maybe it’s my Yorkshire blood that makes this grate even more.  Throwing good money (or even better fabric) away is not part of the Yorkshire psyche I’m afraid, but I’ve found that it’s occurring more and more lately and it is très annoying. Take for example, one of my beloveds; the Willow Tank/Dress by Grainline Studio.  The fabric requirements on the pattern calls for around 2m of 150cm wide fabric to make the dress, however with a bit of...
