For those of you who have no yet heard I AM SUPER EXCITED to in the very very near future introduce you all to FAB17. We are transferring our warehouse (which I have named FAB17 for reasons which will make sense hopefully soon) into a showroom, shop, studio, workspace, and home full of hundreds and hundreds of quality fabrics. New floor, new piped shelving, new toilets, new doors, new kitchen, new workshop space and lots of never before seen fabrics.
We are moving from Wanstead High Street (which we just adore) to not far at all to South Woodford. We are moving to Raven Road which is just off Charlie Browns Roundabout. When we are all moved in I will give you our full address, a map, and lots of different transport options for you all.
The move from the shop to the warehouse has always been a project that was going to take place- it was just finding the right time for us to take on this monster of a project. We are two-ish weeks into the building work and I have successfully managed to lay a tile down in the new bathroom (I will be showing you all my handy work when you come to the warehouse). The move is a great opportunity for our business to grow and continue on the M Rosenberg & Son name. We have been a family business for over 60 years and I just wish my amazing grandparents (who rocked the fabric world) were here today to see how far we have come.
Watch out online fabric shoppers- my website is about to grow and expand very quickly. Once the move is complete and we are all settled in the warehouse, my mission is to create a special and unique online shopping experience. We have hundred of new fabrics passing in and out of our warehouse weekly and I will be snapping up as many fabrics as I can so the online shoppers can have a fantastic shopping experience. New fabrics will be uploaded to the website daily so keep an eye out!!
For all you creative souls out there my workshop space (which I am designing now) will be ready and waiting for you to come and get creative. I am sorting out lots of different types of workshops for all different types of people. There will be a workshop for everyone and a level for everyone, but most of all you will feel relaxed in an enjoyable environment with mind like people creating unique and inspiring garments and crafts.
Stumble across us, book in a group visit, come and have a nose and get involved. We are opening the doors to you, to come in, and visit what my family and I are all about. We have been brought up with a passion and love of quality dress fabric and we hope you enjoy our warehouse experience.
I will be in touch to let you all know how the builders are getting on and how our vision is planning out. In the mean time Stitch Fabrics of Wanstead is open weekdays 10.00am- 5.30pm Saturday 10.00am- 4.00pm.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like more information.
I would like to leave you with just a few pictures of this weeks warehouse events.
