You will be spoilt for choice so do not forget to have your patterns at the ready.

If you follow me on social media such as Instagram and Facebook you’ll know on Monday we took delivery of some beutiful new Italian fabrics. I have never been more excited to receive a delivery!! I haven’t been able show you as many as i’d of like as we’ve been working away in Wragby Town Hall, Lincolnshire and in Farnbourgh Village Hall..
I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who came to support us at Wragby Town Hall this week. It is a very long way for us to travel to so we really appreciate you all who made it a pleasure for us to come and see you once again.
Another big thank you for everyone who usually comes to Hayes Village Hall as a last minute change of location isn’t ideal. We are back to in our familiar grounds of Hayes Village Hall on the 6th April.
This week I will do my best to get a large amount of our new Italian prints online for you all to see. Have a sneak peak above – think spring/ summer wedding, special occasion, holidays and just because you have fallen head over heals in love with the prints like I have! I promise you will not be disappointed in the quality of these new fabrics. I just wish I could sew faster!!!

Whilst dressmaking fabrics is our main passion We thought we would go off track and show you our new collection of furnishings. We fell in love with this brand new range of mix and match patterns. From cushions to curtains, to upholstery to bags and all crafts have a look at our special and unique range of furnishings. At only £6.00 per metre why not make a cushion or two to change the look and feel of any room. Furnishings can also be used for jackets, shift dresses, pencil and A-Line skirts and other garments which do not require draping. Our furnishings are a stoing and sturdy cloth great for beginners and practicing pleats and tucks. See below one of our mix and match colour tones. More online!!!

Wishing all my lovely and loyal customers a very happy and healthy new year. I cannot thank you enough for supporting my family and I by coming back time, after time, for more fabrics and keeping the dressmaking spirit alive. The world of quality, creative and designer fabrics has been in the Rosenberg blood for 3 generations and that is all thanks to you.
Tomorrow those doors open for our second year in the warehouse and I am so excited to show you all what new changes will occur during the year. The past year was all about finding our feet in the new work space and getting into the routine of buying and preparing our dressmaking fabrics. With a few glitches along the way I pleased to look forward to year two in the warehouse having learnt so much and really present the showroom into its full potential.
Our 2018 fabrics are truly going to inspire you.
We are always on the look out searching in different places for new and exciting fabrics.
Fashion is a way of expression and what better way to express yourself than by choosing your own fabric.

Hello. I am a colour stylist based in Yalding in Kent. I organise two sewing groups and have helped them all find their best fabric colours and have run workshops to help build outfits and create personal colour wheels.
Usually a colour analysis session would cost £99 (this includes a full make up session, jewellery and hair colours),but I am offering a special shorter session for dressmakers which will just find your best colours.
For £49 you can have a full draping session and take away some charts of your colours to carry around. You can also purchase fabric swatches of your favourite colours at £1.50 each if you wish.
I will be at Hayes Village Hall with Stitch Fabrics on October 20th. You can pre book a session with me at Hayes or at my home by emailing email@example.com or just come and say hello on the day.
Look forward to seeing you
Fab17 is officially open!!! We have moved into the warehouse and that cute Edwardian building we all used to know and love is now closed. We have moved into a bigger space and better selection of dressmaking fabrics here in the warehouse. If it is half a metre you are looking for or 10 metres of fabric, there is something for everyone. The everyday crafter to the passionate dressmaker or from the students looking for samples to the ‘I want to make my first dress’ customer please come down and visit us in the warehouse… even just to be nosy!!!
We are a 7-8 minute walk from South Woodford station under the subway & the W14 from the station will stop directly outside Raven Road (where We are)! We do have limited parking so if you are coming by car call and I will reserve your space!
Tea and coffee is available for the husbands and for those stressful fabric decision making moments!! Phone me or email if you have any questions or would like more information on anything.

I jumped out of bed this morning knowing that a very big delivery of lovely gorgeous winter weight fabrics will be waiting for me at the shop door on this fresh Monday morning. More boiled wool, more CUT&WEAR and lots more point roma jersey with beautiful colour tones and prints. Delivers are still coming to Stitch Fabrics of Wanstead as the warehouse is still a working process!!
Hopefully not for long…. the heating needs to be installed, a good spring clean and then we will be ready to start moving our fabrics into place. Fingers crossed this will take place this week. Here are a few more pictures of our new and improved world of fabric!!
The Warehouse FAB17 is taking shape… finally. It feels like forever since we started our warehouse adventure to welcome you into our fabric world. New floor, new lights, new shelves, new cutting table, new windows, new kitchen, new toilets and a new workshop space will be ready to you all very very soon. I am counting down the days when all the workman are gone, there isn’t a tool in sight and not one speck of dust left. The warehouse will soon be filled with fabrics, colour, pattern, mannequins, garments, inspiration, plants & flowers, workshops and hopefully all of you!! My Brother Andrew has been absolutly amazing during the warehouse build and has been an extra pair of hands that we would be lost without. A big thank you to Andrew for doing the impossible and practically building and decorating the warehouse himself. We are a family business and cannot wait till you all see our very own fabric world.
I must apologise for the lack of fabric on the website at the moment. Lots of our fabric is in storage due to the move into the warehouse. Once We are all moved in and settled my main aim is to get that website up and running with clear pictures of how the fabric moves and drapes also followed by an exact description of the cloth. Keep an eye out on the Sale section too.
Please see below an update of what the warehouse FAB17 looks like today!!!
Are you ready?!

FAB17 is taking shape and I cannot wait to show you all where we are now. We have come along way and I can see the finish line in the distance!!! We are leaving our beautiful quintessential Edwardian building in Wanstead that has been home to Stitch Fabrics for almost 5 years and we are re locating into a big 1940s art deco warehouse. The move has been inspired by all you dressmakers and everyone creative. We want you to enjoy your fabric shopping experience as much as your dressmaking – and a big space for you to be inspired for all your ideas, choices, and creative design is perfect for you to take your time and lose yourself in our entire range of unique fabrics.
