After cutting my teeth at John Lewis Oxford Street , BhS and Burberry I opened Fabrics Galore more than 20 years ago.

I believed a fabric shop should be both fun and inspirational  – a place you would love to spend time browsing or you could just pop in for something specific, staffed by lovely people who knew what they were talking about.

My background is steeped in fabric – in fact Fabrics Galore is named after the shop my Grandmother started in Skipton and my father’s shop is still the best place to buy fabric in Bradford.

We have contacts amongst our many suppliers that go back generations – relationships that money can’t buy with benefits that we can pass straight  to you.

Please let me know what you think – what you admire /cherish/ want more of. We also do love to hear any interesting stories or opinions you have about sewing and fabric. Feel free to phone us anytime for advice – everyone here sews.
