New Shop Update!

Sep 16 2019 11 Comments 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!

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
