This shop is still open, still running, but it has changed hands and is now called Stitches of Compton Street, I think. It has a great selection of wonderful fabrics, and the staff are very helpful and enthusiastic. Lovely shop!

Such a fantastic selection of fabrics, tools and patterns. I could quite happily lose myself in this little gem of a shop for an hour or so. Workshops, classes, friendly and knowledgeable staff...a perfect combination for anyone who loves to sew!

Love the range of fabrics on offer, in varying price ranges. They also have lots of workshops to learn new skills, Including ones for those that want to learn to sew. I wish I could visit more often!
