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...

New Shop Update!

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...

So here's the deal; we're off on our jollies at the end of May so whenever I've had the chance (which is few and far between nowadays*) I have been fashioning myself a holiday wardrobe, which is killing two birds with one stone as it means I also have lovely things to go on display in the shop to showcase the patterns and fabrics. *The sad, sad irony: owning a sewing shop but not having the chance to sew!  I don't know if you've had a go at the Tilly and the Buttons Coco pattern yet, but if not then...

WOWZERS!  There is no other word to describe the first week of the shop, than “Wowzers”!!  The response and support has been incredible!  I’m not gonna lie, I really didn’t expect many people to come in yet; I thought the numbers might have increased once the workshops got up and running, but oh no…you saw… Continue reading Fabricate: Week 1
