The shop - 24 Brunswick Street, Teignmouth, TQ14 8QD
Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm


We specialise in fabrics with a nautical flavour, either in pattern or colour. Our online shop allows you to browse and order from our collection, with free postage on orders over £50. Samples are available so you can check the look and feel of your fabric before you buy.

We have a selected range of 100% cotton fabrics on the roll. Nice weight and drape for dressmaking and crafts. We also have Chatham Glynn linen-look 80% cotton 20% poly nautical craft fabrics.

For small projects or quilting we have a mix of 100% cotton fat quarters in a host of colours and patterns.

Our range of craft fabrics is ideal for projects like bags, cushions, etc. We have a selection of seaside themes on the roll which are a hard wearing 80/20 cotton/poly mix.

We also have calico, canvas and both fusible and sew-in interfacings of various weights and compostion, all sold from the roll rather than in packets to give you better value and choice.

Embroidery and cross-stitch

We've had a few requests for embroidery and cross-stitch supplies so we now have embroidery hoops, Aida fabric and a starter range of threads, ad a number of cross-stitch kits. We'll be adding more as we find out what people want us to stock. We're always happy to order things in for you - just ask.

Haberdashery, notions and all the rest

The haberdashery and shop is here to help you Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm, stocking all the essentials you need for your dressmaking and general sewing. The Hemline notions range has everything from needles and pins through to repair tape, velcro, bobbins, press studs – and if we don’t have it, we can get it! Our range of Gütermann threads gives a great choice of colours, and we have YKK zips in a great mix of sizes and shades. Ribbons and buttons – some vintage – let you really personalise your sewing.

Sewing kits

For children we have special sewing kits, most with a seaside theme but some cute pets as well.

Suitable for Age 8 upwards (even some adults can make them!) they come complete with everything needed to make a friend for life, apart from scissors.
