It is very exciting to have opened our boutique, loving the fabric, on November 1st, 2016! We have a beautiful collection of  mainly natural fibre fabric, both woven, and knit, as well as lace, Gutterman thread, concealed zips, buttons, trims, and more. Private sewing lessons will also be available….

We are located at 64 Hill Rise in Richmond, Surrey and directions are available on the contact page. The space we found couldn’t be more charming, a former chemist shop, at the turn of the century, with a gorgeous bowed front window, with stained glass and a view of the Thames. We feel very fortunate to be here and are working hard to get everything sorted. We are looking forward to seeing you!

Our usual opening hours are:

Tuesday-Saturday 11.00- 6.00
