Want to know more about us?

Since 1991, our original fabric emporium has been growing and developing. From what started as Steve's passion for recycling textiles and Marianne's business selling antique clothing, they then combined their skills and started selling their first fabrics by the metre. The small shop where it all began still makes up part of our store today!

With the addition of Emily & Lizzie, Steve and Marianne's daughters, and a fantastic team who are equally passionate about textiles - the family business continues to flourish and expand, offering our customers only the very best service.

I believe what makes our business unique is my family's love of textiles. Family holidays have included trips to find something new so I feel very confident that my daughters will fully embrace the aim of continuing to be The Original Fabric Emporium
