My vintage fabric shop is online and you can find me at sewing and fabric events throughout the year. I have a small studio fabric store at Craft Central in London’s Docklands that you can also visit. Part of Craft Central, I’m surrounded by friendly creatives and a changing gallery space.

Opening hours:

My online shop is open 24 hours. I recommend making an appointment either in person or virtually. Fridays and Sundays are best. Book by email or by the Calendly app which automatically finds a convenient time for you to choose. Or send me an email (I’m not on WhatsApp).

Unit 203, Craft Central, 397-411 Westferry Road, London, E14 3AE

The ground floor of Craft Central is fully accessible but there is no lift to the first floor where my studio is.  Please buzz 203 on the intercom by the front door and I’ll come and meet you to talk through your vintage fabric requirements. I can bring down an edit of fabrics for you to view if you are unable to use the stairs.

Salute to the 40s weekender, 9 & 10 September 2023, Chatham Historic Dockyard

I’m at the Salute to the ’40s weekender at Chatham Historic Dockyard Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be bringing along a selection of 40’s inspired vintage fabrics. Sadly I don’t have any of the real thing. Instead I’ll be stocking my stand with pretty cottons, suitings and vintage patterns. My friend Kate Thompson will be joining me on my stand to sell and sign her books that are based in East London and set during World War II.

I’ll be back at the same venue on 12 November 2023
