Our beautiful bricks and mortar fabric shop at 64 Hill Rise is now the home of Bramble & Moss, the amazing florist who used to be next door to us at 60…

We decided to work from a studio to give us more free time for sewing, family and travel! I found myself in a bit of the “cobbler’s children” situation, advocating the wonders of sewing but having very little time to do it myself. So very soon we will selling our lovely fabric and trim at textile fairs, and at my studio by appointment. We are also planning to organise open studio days in the future.

We have a very special curated collection of mainly natural fibre fabric, both woven, and knit, as well as lace, concealed zips, buttons, trims, and more. Private sewing lessons will also be available….

Our studio is located at 10 Kingsway, in Mortlake.

Please ring 07936421985 or email gay@lovingthefabric.com for more information or to make an appointment….
