All alterations will be quarantined for 72 hours before any work can commence.

Shop Browsing & Payment

Contactless payments of up to £45.00 are preferred.


Patterns & Fabrics

Please wear the gloves provided when handling the pattern books and fabric samples. Please then dispose of them in the bin provided.


Cleaning Procedures

All areas of the shop have undergone a thorough deep-clean, cleaning schedules have been rewritten, sanitiser stations have been installed and social-distancing signage added throughout the shop & outside.
