The shop - 24 Brunswick Street, Teignmouth, TQ14 8QD
Tuesday to Saturday 9am to 5pm


We have a bit of a thing for fabrics with a nautical flavour, either in pattern or colour, but we do have lots of other patterend and plain cottons too. Take a look at our online shop where you can 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.
