Back in March 2020, just before UK wide lockdown kicked in we independently took the decision to close our Sewing Centre. It was not a commercial decision – sales in fact were very strong at the time – we closed instead because nothing trumps the safety of our team and we simply could not risk their well-being.
With their well-being still top of mind, we have decided to keep the Sewing Centre closed until Summer 2021 at the earliest.
Exciting Times Ahead – A Full Refurbishment!
We will use the time until then to refurbish the Centre, add many new displays, hundreds of new fabrics & notions for your perusal. Plus enhance the overall customer experience and make structural improvements.
It will be our absolute pleasure to welcome you back with our Grand Re-Opening. Please pop your details on the form below for info on Reopening Dates & Offers as soon as we have them!
