FAB 17 is a 1930s art deco warehouse in South Woodford where our entire collection of fabrics is waiting for you to discover. The warehouse has been around for a number of years and is our main work space in which we prepare fabrics for all our road shows and big events.
The warehouse has become my Dad’s second home with different types of fabrics passing through every day as deliveries are a constant flow of excitment in the warehouse. Our vision is to open up the warehouse to the every day dressmaker & crafter, sewing schools, fashion designers, the 1metre purchase to the 20 metre sewing fanatic. To inspire a new generation of sewers and to bring the lost dressmaker back to the sewing room. There will be more workshops, more fabrics and more space than ever before. M Rosenberg & Son is finally opening its doors to our whole world. This has been over 60 years in the making and I hope you will love what my family has created for you. We want our warehouse to be your warehouse and to remain an active work space full of colour, design, pattern, texture and quality fabric.
We have a vision and now the process has begun. We are getting creative ourselves as the warehouse needs to be looking tip top for our new shopping and creative area. There are parking facilities and we will only be a 5minute walk from South Woodford Station. There will be other transport and parking facilities available once we have found our feet.
I am proud to say we are re- locating to a much bigger premises just around the corner from where we are based now in South Woodford, Ravon Road. Fingers crossed this will take place at the end of August. I will keep you all in the loop of what, when where & how.
If you have any questions please do get in touch with me.
This months fabric sales will be bigger than ever before as there will be no fabric sales in August. You will find brand new linens, cottons, jerseys, lace, polyester, denim, lawn, lycra and possibly the odd winter fabric sample. Textile Garden will be with us in Trumpington on the 20th July with their gorgeous range of unusual haberdashery. Do not miss out this month as new fabrics are coming and going very fast.
